This data was obtained from statistics Canada’s 2011 Canadian census. You can use this data in eSpatial to analyze Canadian household composition. These datasets can be used in conjunction with the eSpatial mapping software to create reports investigating the type of households across Canada. Reports can be generated to examine households with and without children as well as lone-parent, single person and multi-family households. These reports can be generated at the Canadian province/territory, census division and census metropolitan/agglomeration area levels. You can also link and connect your own personal or commercial data to these datasets. Household composition across Canada can also be analyzed in relation to your own data. Below is an example of a simple Canadian household type report.
This report examines two types of household: couples with children and lone-parent households. The Canadian household type datasets provided by eSpatial offer a number of different household type categories which can be reported on but for the purpose of this report the couples with children and lone parent household categories were chosen as an example.
Provinces/territories are colored and categorized according to the number of households containing couples and children. The graduated color scheme adopted by eSpatial mapping software allows for a quick and easy analysis of this data. Yellow provinces/territories (e.g. Northwest Territories) have the lowest number of households in which couples with children live, less than 5,000 households while red colored provinces/territories (e.g. Ontario) have the highest number of this household type, more than 815,000 households. It is also therefore easy to surmise that the number of households containing couples with children in the light orange (e.g. New Brunswick), orange (e.g. Manitoba) and dark orange (e.g. British Columbia) colored provinces/territories lies somewhere between 5,000 and 815,000 households respectively.
