Tracking The Trends: Edmonton's Increasing Diversity provides a comprehensive picture of many aspects of Edmonton's social well-being. This 11th edition of Tracking the Trends presents a number of new social and economic data variables in addition to updates on the trends featured in the 10th edition released in 2009.
This edition of Tracking the Trends features a special section on Edmonton's increasing diversity. Edmonton is becoming a more diverse city in terms of religion, race and ethnic origin. These trends have important implications for Edmonton's future, offering both opportunities and challenges.
This edition also includes an updated Social Health Index. The intent of this index is to provide a rough measure of the overall social health of Edmonton, and how it has changed over time.
Presented together, these trends give us a clearer picture of the social changes taking place in Edmonton. They also offer a broad understanding of the segments of the population which are disadvantaged or marginalized.
