2011 Census/National Houshold Survey Data Now Available for HELP Neighbourhoods

In the past HELP’s data analysts have pulled some important information from Census Canada data to create some very useful resources for our partners in communities, schools and governments across British Columbia.

This month we are pleased to announce that a downloadable resource is now available for the 2011 Census/National Household Survey (NHS). Our data table for 2001 included 19 commonly used socio-economic and demographic Census/NHS variables, for all HELP Neighbourhoods in B.C. We have expanded our 2006 and 2011 data tables to include 82 variables that have been selected for their particular relevance to early child development research, program planning, and policy development.

You will find neighbourhood level data for population by age, labour force participation, marital status, family incomes, Aboriginal population, Immigrant population and many more. HELP has purchased a large number of Census variables that have not been included in these downloadable resources. Please contact us if you would like to discuss a specific data set that interests you or your organization. (There will be a charge associated with preparing unique data requests).
