In addition to the 2017 updates to the Ontario Expenditure and Ontario Business Summary categories, we are now providing access to 2017 Estimates & Projections (e.g the estimated population, education, or income statistics in Thunder Bay), 2017 Daytime Population (e.g how many people are working in a prescribed geographic area in town versus how many are at home), and 2017 Food Expenditures (e.g how much is being spend on different food groups, types of food retailers and establishments, etc). You can get more information about these data sets and where they come from on the Tetrad website.
