The Population & Dwelling Counts database contains core information on Canada's Population, Total Dwellings and Dwelling counts occupied by usual residents, surveyed at the Dissemination Area (DA) level of geography. The 56,590 DA's in the 2016 Canada Census, are the basic geographic unit which data is collected at, by a Statistics Canada census representative. The latest Canadian Census was conducted in May 2016, and will be released in stages throughout 2017.

Data was collected from households through self-enumeration, online, mail remittance and in-person census representative questionnaire methods. Population and Dwelling counts are subjected to random rounding, applied by Statistics Canada to protect confidentiality in small areas of identifiable households. Where possible, databases contain values imputed from higher geography (i.e. CD, CSD, CT) levels to supplement data suppressed in Dissemination Areas with small populations.​

Variables: DA, Population, Dwellings.

The Daytime Population file provides estimates of the Working Population aged 15-64 years and Daytime Population of Persons at Home 0-14 years, 15-64 years and 65+.  Daytime Population estimates are based on compiled business data which includes counts of employees who work, presumably during the day, at the business location within a given dissemination area. These statistics are aggregated for each DA to arrive at estimates of the number of Daytime Employees, which are then added to the at-home residential population, whether retired, in school, or simply not in the labour force to arrive at total Daytime Population.

Daytime Employment estimates are up-to-date, based on measures of business intensity and employment statistics, derived from business-related sources. Constraining factors include the reconciling of employment statistics to labour market totals at the Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) and Provincial (PR) levels.  These estimates are useful for businesses interested in attracting customers, for example, at their daytime location as opposed to the night-time, residential location. 

Variables: Workplace Population, at Home Daytime Population 0-14, at Home Population 15-64, at Home Population 65+.

The Canada Wealth database contains current estimates of the components of household wealth, such as specific assets and liabilities, as well as summary variables indicating net worth. Net worth or wealth represents the net of assets minus liabilities and is provided in aggregate and average form.  This database, is informed in part by the analysis of Investor Economics Inc. with respect to national and provincial summaries of wealth components for detailed assets and liabilities.​

The database represents estimates of the components of household wealth as of June 30th for the lastest year for which Investor Economics, Inc. has published its Household Balance Sheet®. That is, the Canada Wealth data product is produced annually following the "close of books" for the June vintage of the Household Balance Sheet®.

Variables in the database includes total number of households, aggregate amounts, average values and incident rates on non-interest chequing / checking, Interest chequing / checking, savings, term (cd’s, interest bearing accounts), fixed income accounts (bonds), equity investments (stocks, mutual funds, equity investments), fixed term accounts (annuities), long-term deposits (retirement accounts), other financial assets (money market deposits).  Aggregate and overall average on real estate assets, primary residence, other real estate, primary residential mortgages, home equity lines of credit, credit cards liabilities, installment loans, revolving credit, personal loans, total liabilities and total assets and net worth.

Disposable income is essentially "after-tax" income. Estimates of federal and provincial taxes are subtracted from aggregate "before-tax" income, which is identical to aggregate or total household income in Pitney Bowes’ databases. Disposable income in this database is controlled to provincial estimates of after-tax income derived in part from the National Household Survey (NHS). Discretionary income is a more subjective concept than disposable income. Discretionary income is the money that remains for spending or saving after households pay their taxes and purchase necessities including food, housing, transportation, apparel, and out-of-pocket health care.

Variables in the DDI file include total households, aggregate and average values on household income, disposable income and discretionary income.

The Canada Expenditure Potential (CanEx) database provides dollar estimates of the amount of money spent annually, in aggregate, on detailed categories of consumer expenditures. The spending estimates are based on coefficients developed from the linkage of Statistics Canada's Survey of Household Spending (SHS) with Pitney Bowes' PSYTE HD Canada segmentation system. The dataset contains over 360 variables, organized into sub-categories of household and consumer spending on Shelter, Household Furnishings, Household Operation, Transportation, Service, Clothing, Jewellery, Footwear, Healthcare, Personal Care, Recreation, Reading Materials, Print, Newspapers, Tobacco / Alcoholic Beverages,  Games of Chance / Gifts / Contributions, Taxes / Insurance / Pensions, Education and Miscellaneous items.

The Food Expenditure Potential database provides dollar estimates of the amount of money spent annually, in aggregate, on detailed categories of food products, including restaurant spending and food consumed away from home. The estimates are based on coefficients developed from the linkage of Statistics Canada's Food Expenditure Survey (FoodEx) with Pitney Bowes' PSYTE® Canada Advantage segmentation system.

The Food Expenditure Potential database is developed in a manner similar to the Canada Expenditure Potential / CanEx database. Respondents to Statistics Canada's Food Expenditure Survey are asked to maintain a daily record of all food expenditures (excluding those while on overnight trip or longer) using two one-week diaries. For meals and snacks in restaurants, respondents are asked to record the total cost of meals and snacks. Statistics Canada summarizes food expenditure data of the 5,999 households by PSYTE® Canada Advantage cluster for the detailed food expenditure variables, based on reference material provided by Pitney Bowes (MapInfo). Pitney Bowes (MapInfo) analyzes the data to discern patterns and correlates to estimate missing values using a range of statistical methods.  Canada Food Expenditure Potential / FoodEx estimates are modeled for small areas (DAs) based on national average household food expenditure data (proportions) by PSYTE® Canada Advantage cluster (which were subsequently walked over to PSYTE® HD clusters), and Pitney Bowes' current household, income and expenditure estimates.

TrafficMetrix® is the most complete up-to-date commercially available traffic count database of annual daily traffic counts, covering metropolitan six-lane freeways to small two lane rural roads. The traffic count data set is collected from more than 6,000 sources, containing over 4.2 million traffic counts throughout the world, with 1.4 million published counts in North America alone.

 

The data set is available as Published Traffic Counts and Current Year Estimates (835,000 data points). Published counts are the base traffic data provided (as published) by federal, state / provincial and municipal organizations.  Until recently, businesses had to wait on city, state / provincial and federal organizations to fund, collect and publish traffic count data. By the time analysts and project managers could get their hands on published counts, the data was outdated (eight years, on average).  Traffic count data impacts site selection, analysis, and other projects relying on geospatial data to complete. Realizing the need for up-to-date data, the TrafficMetrix® data set also contains Current Year Estimates based on a forecasting model.  TrafficMetrix® Current Year Estimates projects annual daily traffic counts representing the current year.

The file is used at large for Site Selection and Analysis including Retail, Convenience Stores, Commercial Real Estate, Restaurants, Planned Residential Communities and Government Planning.  The file will enable the user to discover prime locations, uncharted opportunities, understanding traffic patterns and historical trends, analyze and forecast potential customer traffic to detect high demand opportunities, evaluate locations for retail facilities, restaurants, risk assessment models, real estate developments, cellphone towers, billboard advertising and more.
