--> Data from 19828-2009 was obtained in an unpublished excel file from Alberta Municipal Affairs and Housing on June 18, 2010. Not all numbers from this file have been updated on the website at the time of writing.
--> This data represents the population of municipalities. It is also possible to record the populations of Calgary and Edmonton based on their Census Metropolitan Areas, which would result in a much higher estimate of Edmonton's population.
--> Not all municipalities have a census every year. If two consecutive data points are equivalent, it is likely because there was not a census in the second year.
