The Research section of the Planning and Development branch of the City of Saskatoon maintains a wealth of demographic data on the City of Saskatoon and Saskatoon neighbourhoods. Most demographic data such as population, income, age, language, and education are taken from Census data. This data has been summarized in the publication Neighbourhood Profiles for over 30 years.
The Research section also provides links to other sources of information such as: the Ministry of Health population data, real estate sales, housing starts and completion data and building permit data. The Mapping and Research section also provides population estimates for the City of Saskatoon twice a year (June and December) and updated population projections approximately every three years.
What are Neighbourhood Profiles?
The Neighbourhood Profiles publication contains a wealth of demographic data for each residential neighbourhood in Saskatoon, such as how many people own houses, average income of residents, park space per resident, ethnic diversity, and political participation. Used by all types of people, from residents to business owners to community organizations, the data in the Neighbourhood Profiles can help people plan for the future or just provide a snapshot of a neighbourhood. Planning and Development has been publishing the Neighbourhood Profiles every five years since 1976 - but a lot can change in five years! To address this “time-gap” and publish the Neighbourhood Profiles on a yearly basis, Planning & Development has acquired annual estimates.
