AGS now offers three datasets for Canada – demographics, consumer expenditures, and wealth. In the coming months, more datasets will become available, including employment and retail potential. Canada demographics are made available in collaboration with Exceed Analysis, a location analytics firm from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Demographics Canada covers the essential characteristics of population, households, dwellings, labor force, and income using a combination of the latest census information and updated household counts.
Where possible, the variables have been chosen and defined to be similar to the variables for the United States while still retaining the demographic distinctions between the two countries. The Canadian dataset includes much more detailed content on language and less on race, reflecting the essential divide between English and French Canadians.
Consumer data is based on Statistics Canada’s annual Survey of Household Expenditures. The merchandise line and retail potential allow for seamless transition between the Retail Potential databases for Canada and the United States.
Consumer wealth data is based on the Statistics Canada Survey of Financial Security that is typically available every second year. Data contains all assets, including non-financial assets such as real estate and business equity.
