Annual demographic statistics
The 2004 issue of Annual Demographic Statistics provides the most recent population estimates by age group and sex, as well as data on births, deaths and migrations. It groups the information by province and territory, census metropolitan area, census division and economic region. It also provides estimates of population by marital status and for census families for the provinces and territories.
The publication includes a CD-ROM that provides additional data such as a chronological series of estimates by various levels of geography. With regard to provinces and territories, the estimates date back to 1971 (tables and animated age pyramid), 1986 for the number of census families, census divisions and census metropolitan areas and 1996 for economic regions.
These time series can be easily captured and manipulated to create customized demographic analyses in any spreadsheet program. The population figures can be used to calculate per capita rates for market research, quantitative analysis and planning.
