Age Structure, 2006 - Youth by Census Subdivision (under 15 years of age)

Age Structure, 2006 - Youth by Census Subdivision (under 15 years of age) Canada is demographically an aging society, although still one of the youngest in the G8 . In 2006, 17.7% of the total population was below age 15. Since the post-World War II baby-boom (1946 to 1965), this proportion has been steadily declining, although the pace of decline has become somewhat slower in recent decades — a clear reflection of fertility trends. In 1961, 34% of Canada's population was below age 15. It dropped to 22.5% by 1981 and to 17.7% by 2006. 2022-03-14 Natural Resources Canada geoinfo@nrcan.gc.ca Society and Culturedemographic mapsdemographic statisticsmap Download the English JP2 File through HTTPJP2 https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6499_age_structure_2006_csd_under_15.jp2 Download the English ZIP (PDF,JPG) file through HTTPZIP https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/eng/6499_age_structure_2006_csd_under_15.zip Download the French JP2 File through HTTPother https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6499_structure_age_2006_sdr_moins_15_ans.jp2 Download the French ZIP (PDF, JPG) File through HTTPZIP https://ftp.geogratis.gc.ca/pub/nrcan_rncan/raster/atlas_6_ed/fra/6499_structure_age_2006_sdr_moins_15_ans.zip
