Making cities work for all: data and actions for inclusive growth is a 2016 report by the OECD.

This report provides ground-breaking, internationally comparable data on economic growth, inequalities and well-being at the city level in OECD countries.

It provides empirical evidence on how cities are diverging from, or converging with, other parts of the country, and of the extent of inequality within cities.

It also proposes a framework for action, to help national and local governments reorient policies towards more inclusive growth in cities - a new approach that ensures that no part of society is left behind.

As part of a series celebrating Canada at 150, From East to West, 140 years of interprovincial migration
is a statistical feature, produced by Statistics Canada, looking at how Canadian population has moved between provinces and territories since 1871.

Migration between provinces and territories has been a part of Canadian  life since Confederation, and the portion of Canadians who leave their province of birth has increased over time.

This movement is influenced by economic cycles and the activity of various economic sectors, changing the demographic landscape. During the 20th century, this phenomena helped shift the population towards Western Canada.
