Montreal Demographics

This morning, Kate liked this interesting article on the demographic distribution of the island’s various buroughs.

As she commented, some of the results are not really surprising, i.e. “young single people live downtown and in the Plateau, older folks live in mid-suburbia and young families live in more distant suburbs”. The article also pointed out some more interesting observations, while the Plateau has the lowest median population age, only Ville-Marie has a lower proportion of children under 14.

On the other hand, the greatest proportion of children can be found in my own burough of Pierrefonds/Roxboro; 20.2 per cent of its population of 65,040 is 14 or younger.
