Data and Resources

Additional Information


This dataset is intended to support BC local governments in meeting provincial requirements to develop housing needs reports.

Data Quality

Projections are available at the regional district level only.

One method for using this data to determine projections for individual municipalities and electoral areas is to: (1) determine a municipality or electoral area's current share of the regional district's population/households. This could be done by looking at current municipal population estimates from BC Stats; (2) assume these shares remain the same in the projection period; and (3) apply these shares to the projected regional district data to come up with population and household projections for the municipality/electoral area.

Lineage Statement

This dataset was prepared and provided by BC Stats.
