Report Card 2011 Neighbourhood Profiles

How to read the Neighbourhood Profiles

The profiles provide information for each of the 21 Halton neighbourhoods. 

The profiles are organized to show results by neighbourhood, municipality, neighbourhood, and
by the region of Halton. This allows for easy comparison of the neighbourhood data to municipal and
regional data.

These guidelines may be helpful in interpreting the data:

It is more useful to look for patterns of findings rather than to focus on a specific finding.

While each indicator in this profile is important, using multiple indicators to form evidence of neighbourhood need is a much stronger approach.

Use caution in interpreting results when the sample size is small (less than 30). When considering small samples, the percentages provided in the profiles can become unreliable and relatively small differences can appear to be large. For example, a 20% difference can translate into only one or two children. Do not over-interpret large percentage differences in small samples.

Neighbourhoods and communities play a critical role in the healthy development of children and youth.
A Vision for Children in Halton Report Card 2004 identified 21 neighbourhoods in Halton region. Each profile provides information on a wide range of indicators for each neighbourhood.
