City Stats

Welcome to City Stats, a site designed to encourage the use of measures of residential segregation in Canadian urban history.

City Stats provides access to several measures of segregation by ethnic group, providing decennial results from 1961 to 2001 for all areas in Canada with census tracts (in 1991 and 2001 we use "single origin" data).

The data used for our calculations were provided by Computing in the Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) at the University of Toronto. With the exception of the 1981 and 1991 data, the tract data used are made available to users through the Canadian Census Analyser. In 1991 and 1981 we use more detailed ethnicity data provided to us by Laine Russ at CHASS.
