Question 2 from the survey asked you to guess the percentage of households renting an unaffordable unit over the total number of renter households, across the whole city. It’s important to acknowledge there are people behind these stats, so here you can delve deeper into this topic by visualizing the number of households that live in this situation. 

This value is represented as a circle on a map of Toronto. The area of each circle is proportional to the number of households paying unaffordable rent in the corresponding census tract. You can zoom, pan and hover on elements on the map to get detailed data on households. Experiment with the interactive commands to filter the data or to look for your neighbourhood.
