Economic Output Figures for Victoria Communities


A graduate student here is looking for economic output figures (something that would be equivalent to the GDP) for five communities in the Victoria area (Colwood, Esquimalt, Langford, Oak Bay, and Central Saanich). Anyone have any ideas on how she can approach this?


According to the Industry Accounts Division, the lowest level of output figures produced are provincial. When asked for ideas on how your student could approach her research question, they said that she might want to consider using Census data (earnings for example) but cautioned that the resulting output comparison would be very very basic.

Your student may want to look at FPmarkets : Canadian Demographics 2007 that gives economic profiles at municipality level. However, there is nothing for the communities for which you are looking data because they are too small (neither at CMA level nor at CA level). However, there are many tables for District Municipalites of Victoria CMA.
