Methodology

Tooltip text

We updated the census data 2016 from Statistics Canada to the current year estimates with the following approaches: enhanced cohort survival methods, collaborative filtering techniques and structural coherence techniques. Cohort survival method is used as a foundation for developing population forecasts. In addition to historical trends from 1991 to 2016, we consider the current birth and mortality rates, migration and immigration statistics, labour force activities and economic indicators. We have developed nonlinear modelling techniques for estimating other demographic variables and preserving the coherence structure in the census data. Spatial characteristics of geographic areas, e.g., apartment dwelling, new residential areas, business density are embedded in the modelling process. The updated Census was used as input of our mathematical models for extrapolating data from DA to 6-digit postal code level.


Data Sources include Census data 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2016 from Statistics Canada, the yearly immigration statistics from year 1981 to 2018 from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Royal LePage’s quarterly Survey of Canadian Housing Price from 1974 to 2019, monthly housing statistics from Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), and population birth/mortality rates from Health Canada and provincial Ministry of Health, and building permits data from major municipalities.


We validate our methodologies and results with in- and out-phase Census data to ensure accuracy of the data product.
