Demographics

This release contains the annual update to the Environics Analytics datasets. The 2021 data release reflects the impacts of the pandemic which resulted in more change than typically expected year over year:

  • The most notable change within DemoStats (current year estimates) is a decline in population growth, due to a slowdown in immigration. Additionally, more than usual year over year change is evident with Labour Force employment/unemployment rates. The impact on employment rates can also be observed in other topics such as Occupation, Place of Work, and Method of Travel to Work.
  • With the transition to working from home due to COVID-19, there is an observable change in the population working from home instead of their usual place of work.
  • When it comes to the expenditure data in HouseholdSpend, most of the year over year change can be explained by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Categories and variables such as Pre-recorded media, downloads and audio/video media, Household appliances, and Household equipment saw an increase in expenditures. Areas such as Movie theatres, Transportation by airplane, Public transportation, Casinos, bingos and gaming machines, Alcoholic beverages served on licensed premises, and Childcare saw a decrease in expenditures.
  • This year's update to PRIZM includes an update to the variable names in the PRIZM system.

First released by Esri in  March 2021, the American Community Survey (ACS) data is re-released in new 2021 geographies. The ACS is the de facto replacement for sample data from the decennial census.

Reflecting the increasing diversity among American consumers, Tapestry includes 67 distinct market segments and 14 summary groups.

With this change in surveys, there are new variables including voting, organic foods, 'SmartHome' tech, and more.
