A number of statistics are available that offer indications of the social fabric of the province.
The Socio-Economic Profiles and Indices present data in tables and charts on population, economic
hardship, labour market issues, education, crime, health problems, risk factors for children
and youth, and regional immigration indicators. Data on the proportion of the population receiving Income Assistance and Employment Insurance is presented quarterly and Community Fact Sheets offer a comparison to provincial figures of various
socio-economic indicators using annual figures primarily. There are also Thematic Maps that offer a picture of various indicators from the Census in an interactive format over time. Finally there are links to other sources of Education Data and a page with information on Other Social Statistics.
