Demographics

Toronto Social Atlas

Toronto neighbourhoodsThe Social Policy Analysis & Research unit is in the process of developing an extensive atlas of social demographic data for the City of Toronto.

Most of the maps in the atlas will be based around the neighbourhood level of geography, with select maps using Census Tracts or even Dissemination Areas, where possible, for added clarity.

The neighbourhood geography provides a consistent, continuous area of study that will not be subject to future political or demographic changes. This will allow for easier comparison studies over time.
