Demography is the study of human population change. It includes research and analyses on the size, structure and distribution of the population, and how populations change over time (or space) due to births, deaths, mobility and aging.
BC Stats produces a quarterly population highlights report, including data tables, that summarizes the current demographic situation for BC and the rest of Canada. Also available and updated on an annual basis are population estimates and projections for a variety of sub provincial regions such as health authorities and development regions. Other demographic statistics include household projections, vital statistics (births and deaths) and mobility information (immigration and migration). BC Stats has also produced a number of technical papers, as well as analytical reports.
