Each province and territory in the map below is
shaded a percentage of color proportional to the largest data for any region.
Using the Population data set, for example, Ontario (population 12,541,400) is
shaded at 100%, because it has the greatest population; but Alberta
(population 3,256,500) is only shaded at 26%, because
3,256,500 ÷ 12,541,400 ≈ 0.26.
- Choose a Data Set button (located at the top of the interactive) to view various data. Alternatively, enter values for each
region in the table; then, click Update Map to view the results.
- The Clear Data button can be used to replace all data with X's. An X
indicates that there is no data entered for that state, and data for that state
will not influence the mean or five-number summary. (By contrast, a data value
of "0" will influence the measures of center.) Click Hide Map Numbers to remove
the data from the map. (The data will still be displayed in the table, however.)
- Change the color of the shading by selecting a different color from the Map
Color pull-down menu.
- The Hide Map Numbers button will toggle between displaying and not displaying values on the map.
