    analysis methodology follows accepted practices in the fields of epidemiology demography and political science This study wanted to see if any distinct patterns occurring when non Anglicized Chinese names are isolated from the rest of the data set It is a primary assumption of this study that a non Anglicized Chinese names may be an indication that an owner may be an recent immigrant to Canada and that an Anglicized Chinese name is an indication of a long time immigrant or non immigrant and or multigenerational Canadian of sole or mixed ethnic Chinese ancestry As a course of experimentation there may be names missed for new immigrants who have Anglicized Chinese names and long time immigrants or multi generational Canadian with non Anglicized Chinese name to may be in the wrong catagory but with external reviews this risk is minimal Within this data set the name patterns were exceptionally and surprisingly distinct as they lacked ambiguous names like Scott Low which could be a Chinese or Scottish name or John Li which could be Chinese Vietnamese or Korean name These names did not exist within this data set Non Anglicized Chinese names in the study were either in a three or two name sequences that our literature survey suggested were Chinese with no ambiguous names Without direct measures of immigration or citizenship status and property ownership that are publicly available in Canada this is an indirect measure of how globalization non localized wealth and immigration particularly from China Hong Kong and Taiwan or Chinese global diaspora are entering one portion of the real estate market in Vancouver At this point it is important to note the sizable literature around income and economic challenges for new and old immigrant Chinese Canadians as well as locally born and other visible minorities in Canada With works from Shibao Guo and Don DeVoretz and Krishna Pendekur and Ravi Pendakur household incomes from local labour markets seem highly unlikely to produce the patterns on a scale that can be explained in the data set Instead the results suggest how the combination of global wealth and low interest rate credit may entering the residential real estate market in a regional environment of near stagnant local incomes David Eby the Member of the Legislative Assembly for Vancouver Point Grey deserves a special thanks for acquiring the data used in this study Without his help as an MLA to acquire the data this study would not be possible and highlight the difficulty of attaining accurate transparent and accessible data to understand the social and economic dynamics within our communities Furthermore with the loss of the mandatory long form census as well as the difficulty and cost in attaining ownership data from the Province it is difficult to conduct data oriented research that is insightful and impactful with how our communities are changing and effective public policies needed to change with them There are some exceptions such as the release of BC Assessment data to accredited academic researchers in

    these charts are the Year Built variable within the Assessment Rolls If a property had major renovations but original building still stands then the year built variable remains but the year of the major renovations are noted as its effective year The core BC Assessment database has been edited for erroneous entries and matches and properties with values of less than 100 000 were excluded from the chart Moreover we suspect that the year built of many residential properties built prior to 1920s may not have been comprehensively documented in the current database Finally one should not be directly comparing the data in this chart to data from Statistics Canada or the Canadian Housing and Mortgage Corporation as each agency follows a different methodology towards tabulating and processing counts of housing A Look Back Data Desk Observations Research Papers January 16 2012 The 80 000 Line Single Family Housing Values in the City of Vancouver circa 1979 As our previous postings have explored the geographic distribution of the City of Vancouver s Single Family Housing prices in 2011 and its 1 000 000 line here is its counterpart from 1979 by Paul Raynor a planner extraordinaire and data guru in the City of Vancouver s Housing Centre Before the days of Excel and ArcGIS Mr Raynor mapped these Single Family Home values by hand For the benefit of our readers when one uses the Bank of Canada Inflation Calculator to adjust values to 2011 dollars the map scales would be 117 000 for a house worth 40 000 in 1979 and 876 000 for a house worth 300 000 in 1979 Incidentally a house valued at 80 000 in 1979 would be worth 234 000 in 2011 dollars This post also includes Raynor s observations and analysis which accompanied the map and was published in a City of Vancouver Quarterly Review in July 1979 Interestingly as Raynor ends his piece with the observation that improvements on the average largely defined as buildings on a property accounted for 46 percent of total values in 1979 this percentage dwindles to less than 20 percent by 2011 A Look Back April 19 2011 A Flickr Slideshow of the Works of Harland Bartholomew and Associates for the City of Vancouver Created with flickr slideshow These images are part of the newly digitized City of Vancouver Archives Harland Bartholomew Collection and are from the Archives Flickr Photostream A special advance thank you to the wonderful student volunteers from the University of British Columbia s School of Community and Regional Planning SCARP and School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture SALA who are helping at the Harland Bartholomew Event on April 26 Thien Phan SCARP 11 Metha Brown SCARP 11 Yazmin Banuelas SCARP 12 Lindsay Neufeld SCARP 12 Jaime Yee SALA 12 A Look Back Data Desk December 6 2010 Closing Schools in the City of Vancouver circa 1928 As the proposed closure of five public schools in the City of Vancouver in 2010 has been averted
