Wellbeing Toronto - Culture

For Reference Period 2008: Martin Prosperity Institute, Year 2010 data. The Cultural Location Index (CLI) is an economic indicator that shows the intersection of where people who work in culture occupations live and work, and cultural facilities. This indicator was developed to provide a quantifiable city-wide view of the geographic concentration of Toronto's cultural sector. This indicator is positively influenced in part by the physical presence of cultural facilities, and the concentration of the people who live and work in the cultural sector. The indicator does not capture culture as a set of community values or beliefs. As such a community could have a very active cultural life, and be lower on the Cultural Location Index.

The Cultural Location Index (CLI) was produced by the Martin Prosperity Institute for the City of Toronto in 2010. For Reference Period 2011: Data not yet available.

For Reference Period 2008: Data not available.

The Linguistic Diversity Index (LDI) is the probability that any two people selected at random would have different mother tongues. Calculated using Greenberg's Linguistic Diversity Index. Lower values mean less diversity, higher values mean more diversity.

The Linguistic Diversity Index (LDI) was developed by the City of Toronto, Social Policy Analysis & Research, based on Census 2011 data.
