History

Date Posted to GIS:
2004
  • 2003: The enumeration areas used by Statistics Canada for expressing census information are not very flexible for planning and analytical purposes. As a result, the District's GIS department contracted Statistics Canada to recalculate all previous census datasets spatially into the various planning neighbourhoods.
  • 2004: The historical census datasets had been recalculated to the Districts neighbourhoods and delivered to the GIS department. Census years 1971 through to 2001 were delivered. The raw data delivered (20 percentile and 100 percentile tables) were processed and used to create this master census table.
  • 2008: Certain census maps required data subsets and derivatives to be created so that the maps could be generated. As a result, the master table was used to create derivative works to support additional census mapping.
