Introducing Stats & Facts

Stats & Facts, a new on-line service of the Canadian Council on Social Development, provides accessible and accurate statistical information. This site is intended for anyone with an interest in timely data on social and economic indicators. We anticipate that Stats & Facts will be frequently used by policy analysts, community planners, activists, journalists, and students.

Users will find informative facts sheets organized by topic areas covering demographics, families, health, education , economic security and the labour market. All of these fact sheets will be regularly updated to reflect the most current data available.

For more details about any of the definitions used in these fact sheets, please see Terms & Definitions from Statistics Canada.

Please note that Stats & Facts replaces our Free Statistics section. All historical poverty and income data, as well as welfare rates, will be archived and available in the economic security section of Stats & Facts.
