Measurement and limitations

Mobility refers to the status of a person with regard to the place of residence on the reference day, May 10, 2011. in relation to the place of residence on the same date five years earlier. Persons who have not moved are referred to as non-movers and persons who have moved from one residence to another are referred to as movers. Movers include non-migrants and migrants. Non-migrants are persons who did move but remained in the same city, town, township, village or Indian reserve. Migrants include internal migrants who moved to a different city, town, township, village or Indian reserve within Canada. External migrants include persons who lived outside Canada at the earlier reference date.

Patterns and Trends

About one-third of Perth residents moved in the last five years, and one-quarter of Huron residents have done so.

Many young people are forced to leave Huron and Perth to pursue higher education. While a few post-secondary schools (University of Waterloo, Fanshawe, Ridgetown, and Georgian) have satellite campuses in the counties offering limited classes, most youth leave Huron and Perth counties for post-secondary education. Some return.
