The DemoStats database consists of current-year estimates for 756 variables and demographic projections for 468 of them for three, five and ten years into the future. DemoStats variables are available at the six-digit postal code level (FSALDUs) for current-year estimates and at the dissemination area (DAs) level for future-year projections. It also provides historical estimates from five years ago based on the same methodologies to ensure accurate trend analysis. DemoStats is created using innovative methods that combine econometric, demographic and geographic models. And it employs a variety of data sources, including the latest Census and National Household Survey (NHS), current economic indicators, post-Censal estimates from federal and provincial governments, immigration statistics and economic data such as building permits. DemoStats features variables on population, family structure, household size and type, ethnic diversity, labour force participation and income—including both averages and distributions.
