Community Analytics
Growing your community first requires that you know it!

Building a strong local economy is key to building a healthy community. This is a local economic development application designed to help Canadian communities and municipal regions build a granular understanding of their community and identify hidden growth opportunities, and core services that may be limiting growth. It uses an interactive and highly visual system of dashboard reports that allows the exploration of large volumes of Statistics Canada data across a large number of custom selected reference communities and provinces. It combines big data with big context to explore and filter down to what’s limiting potential growth in a community (census subdivisions), region (census division) or province and create PDF reports for further discovery and sharing. Reports are available for self exploration and discovery or with written analysis and insight…ready for sharing and planning. See our paper on The Problems with Community Analytics and how we fix them!

Reports provide a much more in-depth analysis than conventional methods by providing a comparison of a community with three custom groups of comparison communities. It’s literally three reports in one…where each individual view can be custom defined. We recommend the 1st view to be a detailed local view of surrounding nearby communities (i.e. urban and rural regions within a 50 km radius), the 2nd view should compare similar communities (i.e. similar population or economic climate), while the final 3rd view is the big picture (i.e. provincial comparison). Note that all communities or regions can also aggregated together for custom regional reports. Each report includes a graphical overview with the key variables and also an in-depth tabular report.
