Demographic Statistics

Socio-Economic Report 2003

This report is based primarily on information extracted from Statistics Canada data. The cumulative impact of individual and household change drives substantial social, political, and demographic trends. This report is intended to provide information specifically for the Town of Amherst Planning and Development Department, and the Department of Community and Economic Development; however, the information provided may be useful to all municipal departments and the private business community.

Understanding the forces and influences behind certain human activities enables us to determine trends and project future activities for social and economic purposes.
