Regional Socio-Economic Monitoring Committees StatPlanet Data Map
Regional Socio-Economic Monitoring Committees (SEMC) were created jointly by the Government of Nunavut's Department of Economic Development and Transportation and INAC to respond to increased levels of resource development within Nunavut. There are committees for each of Nunavut's three regions: the Qikiqtani, Kivalliq and Kitikmeot. These committees are tasked with monitoring the socio-economic impacts of major resource developments as well as general socio-economic trends and indicators within their respective regions. Undertaking these tasks necessitates a reliance on up-to-date data sources, indicators, and a comprehensive mapping/database system.
Beginning in October 2013, NGMP took the leading role to develop an interactive map program now available on the SEMC website. The program allows for the comparison of socioeconomic valued component indicators using data from publicly available sources. The project was completed in May 2015 with the Nunavut Statistics Bureau being primarily responsible for maintenance and updating, though NGMP will continue to support the mapping program.
