Due to differences in methodology and the lower data quality of the voluntary National Household Survey that replaced the mandatory long form Census in 2011, NHS cannot be compared with to historical Census data. However, it is still possible to analyse NHS data more closely to see trends in Hamilton’s demographics and forecast potential differences that may become more apparent when the 2016 Census data is released in 2017. This bulletin in the Demographic Shifts series examines demographic data for Hamilton’s top ethnic groups, Indigenous residents and visible minority groups to explore changes in Hamilton’s population.
