Making sense of the census
The numbers are out and the total population of incorporated communities in the Trinity Conception region has edged up slightly. That’s the broad view. But look a little deeper and there are some interesting trends developing in the region, with Clarke’s Beach, Bay Roberts and Spaniard’s Bay forming what appears to be a growth centre. There’s also some interesting results in Whiteway that will blow you mind. But several communities experienced a sharp drop in numbers in recent years, including the noted fishing hub, Bay de Verde.
