2016 population ecumene by census division

2016 population ecumene by census division A population ecumene is the area of inhabited lands or settled areas generally delimited by a minimum population density. This ecumene shows the areas of the densest and most extended population within census divisions. Census divisions are the provincially legislated areas (such as county, municipalité régionale de comté, and regional district) or their equivalents. Census divisions are intermediate geographic areas between the province or territory level and the municipality (census subdivision). For further information, consult the Statistics Canada’s 2016 Illustrated Glossary (see below under Data Resources). The assemblage of dissemination area population density data from the 2016 Census of Population are used to form the ecumene within census divisions. Areas included in the ecumene are dissemination areas where the population density is greater than or equal to 0.4 persons per square kilometre or about one person per square mile. In some areas to capture more population within the ecumene the criteria was extended to 0.2 persons per square kilometre. The ecumene areas were generalized in certain areas to enhance the size of some isolated ecumene areas in northern Canada. This map can be used as an “ecumene” overlay to differentiate the sparsely populated areas from the ecumene in conjunction with census division data or other small-scale maps. This ecumene shows a more meaningful distribution of the population for Canada. 2021-07-20 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.geoinfo-geoinfo.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsGovernment and PoliticsSociety and CulturePopulation distribution 2016 population ecumene by census divisionESRI REST https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/rest/services/NRCan/cd_population_ecumene_2016_en/MapServer 2016 population ecumene by census divisionWMS https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/services/NRCan/cd_population_ecumene_2016_en/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&version=1.3.0&layers=0&legend_format=image%2Fpng&feature_info_type=application%2Fvnd.ogc.wms_xml 2016 population ecumene by census divisionWMS https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/services/NRCan/cd_population_ecumene_2016_fr/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&version=1.3.0&layers=0&legend_format=image%2Fpng&feature_info_type=application%2Fvnd.ogc.wms_xml Selection of Statistics Canada socio-economic variables by census division 2016 (CD)HTML https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/dd684fbd-d675-4200-8a6a-4c04d78d99ec Selection of Statistics Canada socio-economic variables by census division 2016 (CD)HTML https://ouvert.canada.ca/data/fr/dataset/dd684fbd-d675-4200-8a6a-4c04d78d99ec Statistics Canada’s 2016 Illustrated GlossaryHTML https://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/92-195-x/92-195-x2016001-eng.htm Statistics Canada’s 2016 Illustrated GlossaryHTML https://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/92-195-x/92-195-x2016001-fra.htm 2016 population ecumene by census divisionESRI REST https://maps-cartes.services.geo.ca/server_serveur/rest/services/NRCan/cd_population_ecumene_2016_fr/MapServer 2016 population ecumene by census divisionFGDB/GDB https://ftp.cartes.canada.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/Population_Population/cd-population-ecumene_dr-ecoumene-population/cd_population_ecumene_2016.gdb.zip
