Miscellaneous items I found of interest during the week.

Canada's population clock (real-time model)

It uses the agency's quarterly demographic estimates to give Canadians a sense of the pace of Canada's population renewal. The population clock also models how often, and where, births, deaths and migrations are occurring.
