Data table for Chart 2.6
|CMA||Dwelling density in 2001||Dwelling density in 2011|
|dwellings per square kilometre of settled area|
|Mid-size and small CMAs|
Notes: This chart compares the dwelling density for 2001 and 2011 by dividing the number of dwellings in the settled area by the settled area of the CMA (built-up area excluding roads). Dwellings in the settled area include 2001 and 2011 dissemination block points located within 400 m of settled areas. Low-density dwellings may not be captured as built-up in the remotely sensed data. 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—were then grouped separately.
