I first met Srimanta Mahonty some years ago at a CIC Conference and was impressed by the work he'd been doing. He was analyzing a set of quality-of-life factors by population group within Peel, Ontario, Canada, and was demonstrating the inequities and resilience of a range of immigrant populations. His thinking helped me in the growth and development of our own Race Relations Progress Report.
His work has continued. He just sent out this note on his new, updated website:
The Portraits of Peel website provides three types of information:
- Portraits of Peel Online Database (Population data from 1996, 2001 and 2006 Census at the Peel Neighbourhood level)
Available On-line at: http://www.portraitsofpeel.ca/pop.php
- Target Group Profiles (for example: Seniors, Recent Immigrants, South Asian, Chinese, Blacks and other communities)
Available On-line at: http://www.portraitsofpeel.ca/tgp.php
- Peel Statistics from different sources (for example: Region of Peel, Peel Police, Statistics Canada, HRDC, Health Canada, etc.)
Available On-line at: http://www.portraitsofpeel.ca/peelstatistics.php
Please forward this information to your networks as appropriate.
