Description

The Edmonton Economic Diversity Index measures the diversity of Edmonton’s economy by comparing the city’s employment share by sector to that of Canada’s. Beginning in 2016, the City’s municipal census will include a question to gauge Edmontonians’ employment by sector, based on the North American Industry Classification System. As the City has limited control over employment and the labour market, this index is considered an indicator.
Until data is available in 2016, the Edmotnon Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) Economic Diversity Index will be used.The Edmonton CMA Economic Diversity Index is calculated by comparing employment share by sector data for the Edmonton census metropolitan region to Canada’s employment share by sector. This data includes Edmonton and the surrounding municipalities that form the CMA.
