    Default Wikipedia entry re: demographics of Canada

    Fwiw, here's the wiki re: demographics of Canada (I've heard it said that North American businesses [and perhaps the CFC might be lumped in] often do not pay enough attention to demographics):

    Before I went to each section, I "guessed" at what the next numbers would be, approximately. And I was blown away by just how wrong my guesses were lol

    Try it, it might be an interesting window into how poorly our brain "counts" things.

    Somehow most of the data did not really surprise me, although I didn't try to guess in advance when I first checked out the wiki.

    One thing that sticks out as possibly being very relevant to the CFC is just how small a segment of the population of Canada are children or teenagers (not counting infants and toddlers) - 17% in total. The percentage of seniors alone, if taken as age 65, is about the same - 16.9% is given as the total. The segment composed of adults in between, on the other hand, makes for a whopping 60.7% of the total population.

    Meanwhile, perhaps data mining of current CFC members' information might one day prove very useful, if it ever proves feasible (e.g. more information may be needed first, if it can somehow be acquired).
