Data table for Chart 2.2
|CMA||Population change 1971 to 2011|
|Mid-size and small CMAs|
Notes: 2011 census metropolitan area (CMA) boundaries were used for all years. For this reason, population data by CMA for 1971 may not match previously published census data. CMAs were classified as large, mid-size or small based on the 2011 built-up area using geometric intervals. Newer CMAs—those not populated enough to qualify as CMAs in 1971—were then grouped separately.
