Canadian Dissemination Areas
This product joins Canadian Postal CodesOM
to their corresponding
Census Dissemination Area
(DA). A DA is the smallest standard geographic area for which all
census data elements are disseminated. There are 56,204 Dissemination Areas, therefore there will be many Postal CodesOM
belonging to a DA (averaging about 15 Postal CodesOM
per DA). DAs are subsets of Canadian Census Tracts.
A Dissemination Area can have a population of between 400 - 700 people.
This data is similar to that found in Statistics Canada's Postal Code
(PCCF), but is updated regularly, not every 5 years
This product can be used for developing Canadian sales territory assignments or for compiling Canadian Census Demographics.
Below is a map of a Dissemination Area in St. John's Newfoundland. The green areas are DAs which are part of Tract 0003.02. The red numbers are adjoining tracts.
