by census division and selected cities
|These folders contain layers showing population distribution by census division and selected cities for the given year.
The Selected Cities layers turn on and off the proportional squares representing city populations. This data is also represented in the Population by CDs layer, but the dots are so dense within the selected cities, that this further representation of city population numbers offers a clearer view of the growth of cities over time.
Turning on one of these folders makes Population by CDs within that folder the active layer, see Active Tools below for explanation.
|This folder contains layers showing the province/territory/colony names for the corresponding Population by CDs layer above. Check which Population by CDs layer you have on, and click on the corresponding year in this folder to view the appropriate labels.|
|This layer shows Modern Geography (current provincial and territorial boundaries, as well as selected cities), and is available for reference.|
|Zoom In: Zoom in to see labels for census divisions and selected cities. Note that as you zoom in even further, the labels disappear, in order to allow a clear view of the dot distribution pattern.|
|The active layers in this map are within the CDs and Cities folders. Use the tools below to get data about the these layers.|
|Whichever Population by CDs layer is checked is the active layer. Use the tools below to get data about the population circles for a given layer. Note: if no Population by CDs layer is checked, you cannot use the Active Tools.|
