Number of Units per Acre in Toronto and the GTA in 2016

Census 2016 is out. Data nerds rejoice!

Below are two quick maps I made using 2016 population and dwelling count dissemination area data from Statistics Canada. All the data, shapefiles and various other information (including the data and shapefiles I used to make the maps below) can be found here.
