Through 2010, I plotted socio-economic data onto maps of Halifax, Nova Scotia, with Google Earth.  This is a very time-consuming process (and the right to produce these maps is questionable at best), so I didn’t pursue it as much as I’d like to have done.

Here is an index of the maps themselves.  These maps should be used for information purposes only; do not use them for research purposes. Instead, follow their links to the freely available census tracts offered by StatCan, or, visit a post-secondary institution with access to CANSIM to dig a little deeper into the numbers through different survey tables.
