7 Interesting Montreal Statistics About Every Borough In The City

Ever wonder just how many people live in your slice of Montreal? Have you pondered moving to a new 'hood, but you're unsure if there will be fun, young, and single folks to befriend? Maybe you want a large number of families around for your kids to play with, or a large demographic of cougars. To help you out, we've got the borough breakdown.

Using the city's 2011 statistics, we've compiled the numbers on Montreal's neighborhoods, focusing on the important things: total population, percentage of men and women (for whatever your preference ;) ), percentage of young people, the median ages, and the number of families and single-and-ready-to-mingles.
