The following set of images have
been created using a Location Quotient (LQ) to map the
relative concentration of a variable. A LQ simply represents
how the concentration of a specific attribute, within a given
area (Census Tract), differs from
the average for the entire region (in this case the CMA).
For instance, if the relative number of individuals who reported
mother tongue english in a Census Tract is the same as the relative
number of those reporting mother tongue english for the entire
CMA the LQ is 1, if it has twice the concentration the LQ is
2. A more in-depth description can be found on the explanation
