Jobs First Census Map

jobs first census map

The Jobs First Durham Census Map data tool provides students, employers, and community organizations with a visualization of 14 categories of census data.

The tool includes an interactive map of Durham Region broken down by municipality. Using the filters provided, users can compare census data from population, language, income, and education among other categories. Each category is broken down further into several subcategories, making for 897 individual data points to explore. Statistics can be compared either by absolute comparison or relative to the total population of Durham Region (by percentage).

Census data is often hard to understand, and the Durham Workforce Authority hopes its Census Map tool will allow broader access and understanding to an important data set for understanding Durham Region’s labour market. A main component of the DWA’s mandate is to provide high quality labour market information specific to Durham Region in a way that is easy for the public to consume.
