The Multi-Variable Regional Comparison Feature is designed for retrieving topics for different geographies to aid in making comparisons. Select any number of variables from a single table, and then specify your table options such as geography type, age group, or gender (if applicable). Results will be shown for all geographies of the selected type and can be easily exported to excel for further work.

Table Definitions [show]
Census Families
This definition of the family classifies people in the following manner: 1) husbands and wives (married or common law) living in the same dwelling, with or without children (children of any age who report "single" as their marital status, or imputed children); 2) lone parents (male or female) with one or more children. Thus, the residual population is called "non-family persons" and is made up of persons living alone and of persons living in a household but who are not immediate relatives of other household members.
