Sixty Years of Population Growth; Ontario: 1921 to 1981. Statistical Appendix No. 1.
Jackson, R. W. B.; Quazi, Saeed
An attempt to project the 1981 total Ontario population for each municipality in each county and district was made to provide some guidelines in projections of school enrollment, especially in those areas of apparent rapid growth or even of decline in total population. The process followed was the preparation of a preliminary estimate of the 1981 population for each county and district, on the basis of past trends, with special reference to recent changes, using the census population values from 1921 to 1976 as the base. The estimate was then sent to the county and district educational authorities with the request that they consult the local municipal authorities and send back any revisions deemed necessary, with explanations where possible, such as opening of new subdivisions. These suggestions were considered and the final tables prepared and included in this report. (Author/MLF)
