(4 x ½-hour factual series)
The Stats of Life is a fun factual entertainment series that layers graphics of relevant statistics over intimate stories of real people. But what’s the story behind the stats? In our diverse modern world, is there still such a thing as ‘average’? 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. We explore how people across the country compare to one another while allowing the viewer to discover where they themselves fit into the bigger picture. The four fascinating, light-hearted episodes focus on one important aspect of our lives (home, love, money, and food) to reveal both our similarities and our differences.
