Calgary Community Trends (1/2)

Here is a time series analysis to figure out how the City of Calgary is growing out, and what systemic risks this could pose to the City itself.

Hypothesis
The city should have slowed it’s growth outwards with policy changes geared at developing neighbourhoods. The second map includes the percent ownership, which should help us understand if there are other entities funding this growth.

Conclusion
The city stopped growing out around 2010. The percent ownership shows clearly that the large majority of people on the outskirts of the city own their homes. This is consistent with the other data set showing that these are the neighbourhoods with the fastest growing youth populations. Presumably, citizens are purchasing a home, putting down roots, and having children.  See the demographic changes to illustrate where demographics are moving in the city.

Use the slider at the top right of the graph to go through the census years.
