Data table for Chart 2.4
|CMA||1971 built-up area||1991 new built-up area||2001 new built-up area||2011 new built-up area|
|Mid-size and small CMAs|
Notes: Built-up area data were taken from multiple sources. The 1971 built-up areas were based on Canada Land Inventory: Land Use and Canada Land Use Monitoring Program (CLUMP) with modeling of roads. CLUMP data excluded the CMAs of Moncton, Trois-Rivières, Sherbrooke, Peterborough, Kingston, Barrie, Brantford, Kelowna and Abbotsford–Mission. As a result, 1971 built-up areas may be underestimated for these CMAs. Built-up area estimates for other years were taken from Land Use, 1990, 2000 and 2010. 2011 CMA boundaries were used for all years. CMAs were categorized 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, and for which, with the exception of Guelph, CLUMP data were unavailable—were then grouped separately.
