Planners, policy-makers look forward to 2016 census data release Wednesday

Wednesday’s release is only the first of seven data dumps to take place over the course of the year.

“On Wednesday [Feb. 8, 2017], Statistics Canada will release the first batch of data from the 2016 census, an avalanche of detailed information that sociologists, demographers, urban planners and businesses watch every five years with a high degree of interest — and, admittedly, more than a little data-geek glee.”
