Thank you for being a part of the Community Data Program over the past year, we hope it served your data needs well. Now we need your help in completing our User Survey.
The survey evaluates the CDP, collets evidence on how community data is used and provides useful information to members about how the network is operating.
Your answers will be used by the CDP Team to improve the program and website, develop new products, create community snapshots, enable us to share your work through the network, and complete our annual report.
The survey is 18 questions and should take less than 10 minutes of your time. We will be accepting responses for three weeks. Please chime in and help us make this survey statistically sound!
Your responses matter to us. We invite you to complete the survey at our site.

New Strength-in-Numbers Fact Sheets

CCSD’s Strength-in-Numbers series has a new home on the CDP website. Strength-in-Numbers is a series of infographics, fact sheets and reports highlighting community trends across Canada drawing on the Community Data Program’s unique repository of local data in Canada. It is designed to identify and illuminate significant socioeconomic trends impacting Canadian communities today, providing a source of critical evidence for sound decision-making and program evaluation.

Fact Sheets on Poverty in Canada are now available, including findings from the 2016 Census.

You can make Fact Sheets for your own community! The DIY Infographics designed by the CCSD offer CDP members a simple template to visually report on a number of important social development themes using data available from the CDP. 
Each template allows the user to easily type in data and information about any community at any level of geography. Use the template to create as many customized DIY Infographics as you want!

Our friends in Peel have put out their own graphic fact sheets! The Peel Data Centre produces infographic bulletins to help residents understand how Census data is used to support Peel's Strategic Plan vision of creating a Community for Life. You can find bulletins on population, dwellings, age, sex, and more on CDP’s Peel Region page.

If your organization is putting data to use in innovative ways, we would love to see and share with our network! Email Alex to share your work.
