Question 1 from the interactive survey asked for your guess about the evolution of prices for residential units in Toronto, in terms of absolute value (C$). Here you can delve a bit deeper in the issue through a visualization of data from the Torono Real Estate Board which depicts the rate of change of that value—its variation, in percentage, over the previous year. TREB divides Toronto into 35 areas: data for each of them is visualized in a dedicated  area chart, representing the change in prices between 2011 and 2018. 

As TREB’s areas are not consistent with the city’s neighbourhoods as you might know them (they can include more than one, or just portions of them), they are arranged as a map of Toronto—into what is called a cartogram—so that their relative positions mirror as closely as possible the actual territorial relations. This way, you can look for patterns in the value across the whole city, comparing the data through a consistent visual model. Want to know more?
