    I believe I answered my own question from earlier about the radius circles. My questions now is how use the demographic data provided on MapPoint with the circles? ie Can you narrow the demographic searches to 1, 3, 5km areas in order to find all the population info in those areas.

    This is a somewhat tricky question. For Canada, demographics exist in
    MapPoint at 4 geographical levels (province, census division, forward
    sortation area and census subdivision). You can only get data to those
    levels. So if the question is whether you can get an accurate population
    within a 5 km circle, the answer is "no". If the question is whether you
    can get the population for the all of the geography levels whose
    centroids are inside the circle, then the answer is "yes".



    Select the data mapping wizard, and choose the "Shaded Area" map. Select
    the demographic you want, and in the "Show the data by" list box choose
    "Geography for every zoom level". Draw your circle, export to Excel and
    there you have it.
