Nova Scotia Community Counts provides a common platform for social, economic, environmental and cultural data from many sources that illustrate the unique nature of each community. It provides easily accessible and understandable information products at 16 levels of geography. The Map Centre offers over 40,000 maps that are dynamically generated based on user requirements. Community Counts also offers comparisons of community information at the local, regional, provincial, and national levels to present a more complete picture of Nova Scotia’s communities.

Celebrating our 10th anniversary - 2005-2015!
Community Counts went live in January 2005 and revolutionized the way that Nova Scotians find data about their communities. Our common platform for data from many sources has become a model for what is now called open data. To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we have joined a Pan-Canadian research partnership, GeoTHINK, which is exploring how citizens engage with their governments using open data and interactive, web-based technologies.
