an overview of methods and data sources : Demosim 2017 /

"Demosim is a Statistics Canada’s microsimulation demographic projection model designed to project the Canadian population according to various ethnocultural characteristics. This document provides an overview of how the 2017 version of the Demosim projection model works. It describes the base population, data sources and methods for each component. The assumptions and scenarios used in presenting the results from this version are described, for purposes of interpreting the results, in the analytical reports of which this report is a technical supplement. Lastly, the description of Demosim in this report should be seen as an extension of the documentation related to previous versions of the model. Even though the versions of the model used in this projection cycle have been completely redesigned and updated, the description of Demosim herein has been constructed and developed based on this documentation"--Introd., p. 5.
