Insight: Wealth in Suburbia - is Uniformity a Bad Thing?
In this MPI Insight, we continue our analysis of suburban Ontario. The first in the series demonstrated the distribution of population in the selection Census Metropolitan Areas (CMAs) of Kingston, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Windsor, Hamilton, and Oshawa across areas defined as downtowns, inner suburbs, and outer suburbs. This revealed how heavily population is weighted toward the outer suburbs. The second suburban Insight illustrated when these cities experienced housing growth, and how that is manifest in housing and neighbourhood design. In this - the final in the series - we undertake an income analysis across the three categories in the regions studied.
