Tracking the Trends 2011: Edmonton's Increasing Diversity
tracking the TRENDS is the ESPC's flagship publication that offers a comprehensive collection of current and historical demographic and socio-economic data focused on the Edmonton region.
tracking the Trends 2011 also features a special
section on Edmontons increasing diversity. Edmonton is becoming a
more plural city in terms of religion, race and ethnic origin. These
trends have important implications for Edmontons future, offering both
opportunities and challenges.
The publication divides the trends into six major categories:
- Demographics - indicators of population growth, immigration and population diversity.
- Education & Employment - indicators of educational achievement and employment status of the population.
- Cost of Living & Housing Trends - indicators of the costs of
basic necessities, such as food and housing, as well as the housing
status of the population.
- Wages, Income & Wealth - indicators of the changing value of the wages, incomes and net worth of individuals and families.
- Poverty - indicators of the prevalence of low income, as well as the incidence of acute forms of poverty, such as homelessness.
- Government Income Supports - indicators of the investments made by
governments towards improving financial security and the impact of those
investments on low income families.
This edition also includes an updated Social Health
Index. The intent of this index is to provide a rough measure of the
overall social health of Edmonton, and how it has changed over time.
The entire 2011 Edition is now available as a document download in a pdf format [128 pages] (15.6MB).
