Data fusion with stratified sampling techniques. Structural coherence is essential in selecting geographic level and the integration process. We have applied techniques from statistics, dynamics, data mining and other disciplines, including multi-staged and adaptive nonlinear methods for dimension reduction, effective statistical distance functions and coherent structural approximations.

Data sources include census data from Statistics Canada, yearly immigration statistics from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Royal LePage’s quarterly Survey of Canadian Housing Price, monthly housing statistics from Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), population birth/mortality rates from Health Canada and provincial Ministry of Health, business lists from directory books/Yellow Pages, building permits data from major municipalities.

Validation and refinement is done via independent data sources.
