[Xmca-l] Re: Our Broken Economy, in One Simple Chart - The NewYorkTimes



Martin, Peg,
The interpretation depends on the (category) used and i recognize the data is aggregating all of Canada’s regions.

If we focus on the 3 largest metro cities (Toronto, 6 million) (Montreal, 4 million) (Vancouver, 2.5 million) then the trend is clear.

The historical trend towards increasing  single occupancy residency in these 3 Canadian metro cities seems  accurate. 

Not sure if this pattern is specific or more general? Also multiple reasons may be proposed but the trend seems significant?

The page that Peg pointed to seems to support Larry’s data:

28% one person households
26% couple with children
26% couple without children
9% lone parent family
4% non-faily household of two pr more
4% other family household
3% multi-generational household
