August Census release

Statistics Canada has just released two topics from the 2016 Census program:
  • Families, households and marital status
  • Languages
The Daily contains key results from the 2016 Census, such as a high in percentage of one-person households (28.2% of all households in 2016) and trends on couples - the number of couples living without children rose faster (+7.2%) than the number of couples with children (+2.3%). Also, the article links to numerous new Census-related products including infographics, videos, maps, data tables, and more! The Community Data Program team will make links available from our website to STC’s website for the free standard releases, while special orders – non-standard geographies and custom cross-tabs – will be ordered by the CDP and posted to our website as they are acquired.

Geographic Resources

The software GeoSuite has been released with 2016 Census data. This is a useful tool for exploring the links between Census standard geographies and finding basic information and data on those areas.

GeoSearch is an interactive mapping application that makes it easy to find geographic areas in Canada for which census data are available. To find a specific place of interest, users can click and zoom in on a map of Canada or they can search by place name or postal code. Links to data products, analytical products and maps that are available for the selected area are listed below the map.

Additionally, you can view thematic maps showing 2011-2016 population change by Census Division, Census Subdivision and Census Tract or use the updated Focus on Geography series, which presents data highlights for each of the major releases of the 2016 Census through text, tables maps and figures.
