How to

A walk through Peg

 

You can access information on this site in five ways:  Explorer, Map, Search, Stories, and the Dashboard.   

Explorer:

The Explorer allows you to access data related to a particular theme or indicator. 

Click the Explorer tab or the spider-web icon.  This will take you to our Explorer tool.  The initial view will show Wellbeing in the centre, with the eight themes around it.  If you are interested in learning about the themes and indicators related to the crosscutting issue of Poverty, click on the box to the right that says “Go to Poverty.”

Click on the theme you are interested in.  This will take you to its definition and the indicators for that theme.

Click on an indicator.  This will take you to the data for the indicator. 

 

Map/By Neighourhood

The Map allows you to access data related to a specific Winnipeg community area or neighbourhood.  

Click the Map tab or the Select a Region icon.   This will take you to a map of Winnipeg, divided by neighbourhoods.

On the checkbox, choose between Neighbourhood and Community Area information.  The map will show the boundaries for that characterization. 

Click on the neighbourhood or community area about which you are interested.  This will take you to the demographics and available indicator data for the neighbourhood or community area you have chosen.

 

Search Button

In order to quickly access data, you may use the search function.  The site will then point you to the indicators and stories related to your area of interest. 

 

Stories

Stories can be accessed in one of three ways:  the Stories page, the associated indicator and/or theme, and the search function. 

On the Stories page, you will find that the stories have been grouped according to theme and/or crosscutting issue.

Click on a theme or issue and you will be taken to the stories that relate to your interest.  Some stories are available in video and written format and others are only available in written format. 

If you click on a written story, you will see a box with a listing of potential areas of interest.  Check of the items that are of interest to you.  They will then be highlighted in the story.  Below the box you will then also see a listing of all the stories that relate to your areas of interest. 

Dashboard

The Dashboard provides a different level of information. On the Dashboard, you will find information that we have pulled together that provides further data and analysis on the month’s Feature Indicator.

Further Questions About using Peg

Where can I find a definition of the themes?  Each theme has its own page, which you can find through the Explorer tool.  When you click on the theme, you will be taken to a page which identifies the indicators for that theme.  At the bottom of the page you will find a definition of the theme.  You can access the theme’s page either by clicking the Explorer tab or doing a search.

 

Where can I find a definition of the indicators? The definition for each indicator is found on its page within the Explorer tool.  There are a couple of ways you can find the indicator’s page.  You can either use the search function or go to the page for the associated theme and click on the indicator. 

  

How can I find information on my neighbourhood? Click on the Map page and you’ll get a map of the city of Winnipeg, with the neighbourhoods identified.  Click on the neighbourhood that you are interested in.  This will take you to a page with demographics and the available indicators data for the neighbourhood you have chosen. 

 

How come I can’t find information on some of the indicators for my neighbourhood? Peg is an ever expanding work in progress and so data is posted as it is received.  Peg does not generate its own data but depends on external sources to provide it.  Some data is not yet available and other data is only available at a city-wide level.
