Population Estimates

A population estimate is a measure of the current or historical population. On an annual basis, BC Stats releases total population estimates for 190 municipalities and unincorporated areas, 29 regional districts and eight development regions located in B.C. These estimates are consistent in aggregate with the Statistics Canada produced annual (July 1) provincial level totals.
