All youth have the potential to play an extraordinary role in transforming Ottawa cultural, social, and workforce environment. While many youths are successful and actively engaged with community, others face challenges finding their own place in Ottawa society.
The data and maps on this page provide insight into the diversity of youth population across Ottawa neighbourhoods and the challenges they might be facing.
The Youth Dashboard presents indicators of youth vulnerability along with statistics on youth diversity in a selected NEI neighbourhood. The two maps allow to compare the percentage of youth in low income or the percentage of racialized youth across Ottawa NEI neighbourhoods.
1) Select a Neighbourhood from the interactive list of neighbourhoods located on the left pane. The map will zoom to this neighbourhood and the dashboard indicators around the map will update with the statistics for the selected neighbourhood.
For indicators of low income and unemployment the numbers in green indicate below citywide average population; in red – above citywide average population. of these groups in the neighbourhood.
2) Bring different indicators to view by clicking on the tabs under the indicator and map windows.
Note: This selection will not change the statistics of the dashboard indicators and graphs.
