The Stats of Life

About the Show

THE STATS OF LIFE (1x60, 4x30) is an entertaining, fact-filled, graphic-packed format that drills down on a range of population statistics, to reveal the surprising truths about the family next door, giving unique insight into who we are as a nation. According to Statistics Canada, the average Canadian family is a white, 40-year old married couple with two children, living in a three-bedroom house. ​But as we all know, numbers don't tell the real story of how we, as Canadians, live.

In each episode, we will meet three real families - one that brings to life the average statistics within a theme, and two outliers who illustrate the range of lifestyles and experiences within Canada. The one-hour pilot episode, “Modern Families,” reveals how Canadian families deal with the pressures of living together. Additional half-hour episodes will focus on money, house and home, food, and love and dating.

A CBC original series, THE STATS OF LIFE is produced by Frantic Films. The executive producers are Jamie Brown,  Jeff Peeler and Kip Spidell, with Spidell also serving as series producer. The series was selected as the winning format of the inaugural CBC Format Incubator and is represented in the international marketplace by Zodiak Rights, part of the Banijay Group (formerly Banijay International).
