Map(s) of the Week: University admission: U of T
|BERNARD WEIL/TORONTO STAR|
This week, we wind up the series on neighbourhood patterns in university admission by looking at the University of Toronto.
First, the St. George campus. I'm not sure what I was expecting from this map, but it wasn't this very strong cluster covering the area from Willowdale west to the 404. Rates are also high on the east Danforth and in Don Mills, in the area of the campus itself, and in two west-end postal codes along Bloor St. There is a rough tendency for darker areas to cluster along subway lines.
The Scarborough campus shows a clearer regional pattern, in this case in the area of the actual campus, which draws first from the east-central areas of Scarborough, then from western Scarborough and Markham.
The Mississauga campus draws sharply from its immediate area in west-central Mississauga.
Records were obtained under access-to-information laws.
