If Peel Region were a community of 100 people,
it would look something like this...
In comparison to 2001, 2006 census data reveals that Peel Region has seen a slight increase in its seniors’ population, a greater proportion of foreign-born, a change in its top five source countries for immigrants, an increase in the proportion of those with the highest and lowest education levels, as well as an increasingly diverse linguistic profile. Moreover, it is interesting to note that the area municipality of Brampton increased its share of the total population of Peel Region.
Of the 78 villagers aged 15 and over, 74 would have some form of income:
29 of these would be earning less than $20,000 [28 in 2001],
20 would be earning $20,000-$39,999 [22 in 2001],
13 would be earning $40,000-$59,999 [13 in 2001],
12 would be earning more than $60,000 per year [12 in 2001],
Peel villagers would have a median income of $27,879 [$27,969 in 2001].
Male median income of $34,177 [$34,882 in 2001]
Female median income of $22,554 [$21,824 in 2001].
14 Peel villagers in households would be living in low-income [12 in 2001].
Note: 2001 figures were listed where there was a significant difference between 2001 and 2006 figures or to maintain consistency. Facts that do not list 2001 figures in parenthesis either did not change or changed minimally in 2006.
