About Canadian Tablet PC and Industry Market Size and Share Estimates
Tablet PC Ownership Market Size Estimate Calculation Explanation
Tablet PC ownership estimates can be developed for Canada, individual provinces and territories, Census Metropolitan Areas (CMAs), and even specific cities. Tablet computer market size estimates have been calculated using Media Technology Monitor (MTM) Tablet PC market research, Statistics Canada Census data and Elections Canada counts of registered federal election voters. For example, Spring 2012 MTM Tablet PC ownership in Canada research indicated about 21% of Anglophone and Francophone Canadians - 18 years of age and older - own a Tablet computer. Population by mother tongue, by province and territory (2006 Census) statistics reveal approximately 80% of Canadians are Anglophone or Francophone: identifying English or French as their mother tongue language. May 2, 2011 Elections Canada voting results indicate there were 24,257,592 registered voters for the 2011 federal election. The legal voting age in Canada is 18, and this pool of eligible voters is a sufficient estimate of Canadians - 18 years of age and older - to which MTM Tablet PC ownership research and Statistics Canada Census Anglophone and Francophone ratios may be applied.
