AbstractThis map shows the change in old-age dependency ratios from 1991 to 2000. The data was computed for each census division by dividing the 2000 dependency-ratio value by the value for 1991. Census divisions where the dependency ratio is unchanged or has increased during this time period have a value of 1.00 or greater. The old-age dependency ratio for Canada increased from 16.9 to 18.3. Many urban and rural area of the country experienced a significant shift to a "greyer" population during this period. However, while the actual old-age dependency ratio is still higher in rural areas, the relative increase in the ratio has been more rapid in predominantly urban parts of Canada.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The map was originally published online in the Atlas of Canada, 6th Edition as an interactive digital map derived from a shapefile and mapped online using MapServer, a platform for publishing spatial data to the web. In order to preserve the geographical content of this Edition during its publication from 1999 to 2009 all the maps have been converted from their online interactive form to a raster and made available in PDF and JPEG.
