Information provided in the Child Health Report 2002 on child population.

Peel's Children

  • In 1996, there were over 250,000 children aged 0-19 years in Peel. By 2006, this number is expected to grow to almost 315,000, a number larger than the current total population of cities such as Windsor and Victoria.
  • While the population of children in the Region of Peel is expected to rise over the next 20 years, the proportion of the population aged 0-19 years is expected to decline from 30% in 1996 to 23 per cent in 2016.
  • Crude birth rates have been slowly declining since 1990, but the number of children born in Peel is stable due to overall population growth.
  • Crude birth rates for the Region of Peel were consistently higher than Ontario, which was likely due to a higher proportion of women aged 25-39 and to higher fertility rates.
