It was in the fall of 1994 that a Peterborough Profile Report was published, filled with interesting and valuable stats about the city.
Bruce Anderson brought us that story.
Now of course the latest stats are readily available on line via the Greater Peterborough Area Economic Development Corporation's website: such as the fact that the Peterborough Regional Health Centre is the area's largest employer, GE Canada the largest industrial employer ... General motors the largest employer of Peterborough area commuters, and the per capita income: 26-thousand 345 dollars. If there's anything else you'd like to know simply Google GPA EDC and dig in.
And, by the way, seniors now comprise roughly 19 and a half percent of Peterborough's total population compared with a little over 16% listed in the 1994 profile.
