Peg is a data dashboard – also known as a community indicator system – tracking measures called “indicators” that reflect our city’s well-being. In measuring the well-being of our city year-over-year, Peg helps Winnipeggers learn how their life, their neighbourhoods and their city is changing.

The Peg team updates the indicators as new data becomes available. We’ve provided a round-up of the latest data updates to our community indicators below, with many giving a sense of how Winnipeg was faring as it entered the pandemic.

How We Bring you Local, Reliable Data

Peg is your hub for reliable data from sources including the City of Winnipeg, Stats Canada, Manitoba Centre for Health Policy and more. The International Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD)—who, with United Way Winnipeg, leads Peg—vets all data prior to information being available on the Peg site. This adds another layer of assurance to the quality of the data—the data comes from credible sources and IISD confirms the validity of the content on Peg.

You can find a range of information in eight community indicator theme areas: Built Environment, Basic Needs, Economy, Education & Learning, Health, Natural Environment, Social Vitality & Governance and Demographics. Each theme area provides graphs and descriptions on relevant indicators to help non-profits and other organizations identify trends in our city’s well-being.

We have compiled the most recent data available for over 20 community indicators:

Segmenting Data by the 12 Winnipeg Community Areas

Many of our community indicators provide data at the neighbourhood level. This makes it easy to access local, relevant data on a specific community as well as to compare its performance on a given community indicator to other neighbourhoods.

Interacting with Indicator Graphs

Community indicator data is brought to life using a variety of interactive graphs. Depending on the data and variables available, you can easily augment how the data is displayed.

  • For graphs displaying data by community area, you can toggle by year using the Select Year Range dropdown. 
  • If you’d like to adjust which variable is displayed in a graph, simply toggle data sets on and off by clicking a variable in the graph’s legend.
