Statistics Canada has just released Income data from the 2016 Census program.

The Daily contains key results from the 2016 Census, such as a the median total income of Canadians is $70,336 in 2015. For persons aged 25 to 54 years, the median employment income in 2015 is $43,346. However, growth was not distributed evenly across Canada - median income growth was highest in Nunavut and Saskatchewan (resource-based provinces) while median income growth was slowest in Ontario and Quebec. 

Here are some articles from Statistics Canada: The Community Data Program team will make links available from our website to STC’s website for the free standard releases, while special orders – non-standard geographies and custom cross-tabs – will be ordered by the CDP and posted to our website as they are acquired.

For the full release schedule, click here: Census Program Release Schedule
 
Income data products The Census Profiles have also been updated with income data, providing a look at income trends down to the Census Tract and Dissemination Area level.

Geographic Resources
The software GeoSuite has been released with 2016 Census data. This is a useful tool for exploring the links between Census standard geographies and finding basic information and data on those areas.

GeoSearch is an interactive mapping application that makes it easy to find geographic areas in Canada for which census data are available. To find a specific place of interest, users can click and zoom in on a map of Canada or they can search by place name or postal code. Links to data products, analytical products and maps that are available for the selected area are listed below the map.

Additionally, you can view thematic maps showing 2011-2016 population change by Census Division, Census Subdivision and Census Tract or use the updated Focus on Geography series, which presents data highlights for each of the major releases of the 2016 Census through text, tables maps and figures.

"This chart shows key results from the 2016 Census. In 2015, Canada's median household income was $70,336. The Northwest Territories had the highest median household income, while the Maritime Provinces and Quebec had the lowest."

"This chart shows the real growth in median household total income for provinces, territories and metropolitan areas in Canada between 2005 and 2015. The horizontal axis measures the growth rate from -30% to +50%.

There is a vertical red line at 10.8% on the horizontal axis, representing the Canadian median household income growth rate.

The vertical axis consists of 13 rows, one for each province and territory, starting with Newfoundland and Labrador at the top of the chart, and ending with Nunavut as the bottom row.

On each row, there is a single red dot that provides the average change in median household total income for the province or region. There are also other circles on each row, and the centre point of each circle indicates the change in median income for a metropolitan area—specifically, a census metropolitan area (CMA) or a census agglomeration (CA). The size of each circle is proportional to the population of the CMA or CA, so larger CMAs and CAs show up as larger circles. Finally, the colour of the circle corresponds to the region (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Prairies, and B.C. and North).

Overall, the chart conveys that below-average median income growth occurred in Ontario and all provinces east of Ontario, with the exception of Newfoundland and Labrador. Median income growth well above the average occurred in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. British Columbia shows median income growth slightly above the national average. For all provinces and territories, the CMAs and CAs tend to follow the provincial pattern."

"This chart shows the change in low-income incidence for Canadians of different ages between 2005 and 2015.

The horizontal axis marks the different ages, starting from age 0, up to age 95 and older.

The vertical axis shows the incidence of low income—that is, the proportion of Canadians who had low income. It varies between 0% and 25%. A result of 0% means no one had low income, while 25% means one-quarter of the population had low income.

There is a horizontal line on the chart labelled "Canada: 14.2." This is the incidence of low income in 2015 for Canada overall. It means the proportion of Canadians with low income was 14.2% in 2015.

Along the horizontal axis at each age value, there are two vertical bars in the chart. The first represents the incidence of low income in 2005 for that age, while the second bar indicates the incidence of low income in 2015 for the same age.

The chart shows that, relative to persons aged 25 to 55, the incidence of low income was higher for young children, youth, pre-retirees, and seniors aged 80 and older, in both 2005 and 2015. However, during the decade, the incidence declined for children aged 5 and younger, and rose for Canadians aged 65 and older."

On each row, there is a single red dot that provides the average change in median household total income for the province or region. There are also other circles on each row, and the centre point of each circle indicates the change in median income for a metropolitan area—specifically, a census metropolitan area (CMA) or a census agglomeration (CA). The size of each circle is proportional to the population of the CMA or CA, so larger CMAs and CAs show up as larger circles. Finally, the colour of the circle corresponds to the region (Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, Prairies, and B.C. and North).

Overall, the chart conveys that below-average median income growth occurred in Ontario and all provinces east of Ontario, with the exception of Newfoundland and Labrador. Median income growth well above the average occurred in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. British Columbia shows median income growth slightly above the national average. For all provinces and territories, the CMAs and CAs tend to follow the provincial pattern.


This chart shows the change in low-income incidence for Canadians of different ages between 2005 and 2015.

The horizontal axis marks the different ages, starting from age 0, up to age 95 and older.

The vertical axis shows the incidence of low income—that is, the proportion of Canadians who had low income. It varies between 0% and 25%. A result of 0% means no one had low income, while 25% means one-quarter of the population had low income.

There is a horizontal line on the chart labelled "Canada: 14.2." This is the incidence of low income in 2015 for Canada overall. It means the proportion of Canadians with low income was 14.2% in 2015.

Along the horizontal axis at each age value, there are two vertical bars in the chart. The first represents the incidence of low income in 2005 for that age, while the second bar indicates the incidence of low income in 2015 for the same age.

The chart shows that, relative to persons aged 25 to 55, the incidence of low income was higher for young children, youth, pre-retirees, and seniors aged 80 and older, in both 2005 and 2015. However, during the decade, the incidence declined for children aged 5 and younger, and rose for Canadians aged 65 and older.

Follow us on Twitter @the_ccsd --> August Census release
Statistics Canada has just released two topics from the 2016 Census program:
  • Families, households and marital status
  • Languages
The Daily contains key results from the 2016 Census, such as a high in percentage of one-person households (28.2% of all households in 2016) and trends on couples - the number of couples living without children rose faster (+7.2%) than the number of couples with children (+2.3%). Also, the article links to numerous new Census-related products including infographics, videos, maps, data tables, and more! The Community Data Program team will make links available from our website to STC’s website for the free standard releases, while special orders – non-standard geographies and custom cross-tabs – will be ordered by the CDP and posted to our website as they are acquired.

For the full release schedule, click here: Census Program Release Schedule

  Families, households and marital status Accompanying reference materials
Language Accompanying reference materials
Geographic Resources
The software GeoSuite has been released with 2016 Census data. This is a useful tool for exploring the links between Census standard geographies and finding basic information and data on those areas.

GeoSearch is an interactive mapping application that makes it easy to find geographic areas in Canada for which census data are available. To find a specific place of interest, users can click and zoom in on a map of Canada or they can search by place name or postal code. Links to data products, analytical products and maps that are available for the selected area are listed below the map.

Additionally, you can view thematic maps showing 2011-2016 population change by Census Division, Census Subdivision and Census Tract or use the updated Focus on Geography series, which presents data highlights for each of the major releases of the 2016 Census through text, tables maps and figures.

Follow up on the 2017 annual meeting in Kingston
This year the Annual General Meeting was hosted in Kingston. It was a successful one and half days - we had a lot of discussions on how to help enhance data literacy, build capacity, and improve the program. It was a great pleasure to meet members of the program in person and see how the data is being used!


The meeting report has been finalized and contains links to the presentations and several other files that were used. These reports are posted to the Leads' meetings page and the Past Webinars section. A big thanks to those who presented!




        Back to Table of Contents -->   Data news   New data and updates in the catalogue
Annual population estimates by age and sex, July 1, 2001 to 2016, Census
  • This file contains population estimates for census subdivisions based on the 2011 Census counts adjusted for census net undercoverage (including adjustment for incompletely enumerated Indian reserves and population reviews).
Broad Age Groups (5) with Average and Median Age, Census 2016
  • This file contains population counts by broad age groups (total, 0-14 years, 15-64 years, 65+ years, 85+ years) with average and median age, for all sexes.
Non-mortgage consumer debt, 2016 Q1 (INFORMATION UPDATE)
  • These credit data indicate levels of non-mortgage consumer debt at the six-digit postal code (FSALDU) level.
  • INFORMATION UPDATE: When calculating average debt, the total number of credit files is used as the denominator. The total number of credit files includes files that contain any debt product, as well as those that have only mortgage debt but no consumer debt. Equifax has indicated that in spite of this, they use this denominator when calculating NMCD indicators, such as those reported in the newspaper on the average consumer debt of Canadians.
  • NOTE: A credit file represents a client. A trade is a debt product.

HUMA's report - Breaking the Cycle: A Study on Poverty Reduction

Committee conducted fact-finding trips across Canada, visiting five provinces to study the topic of poverty. The report is based on oral and written testimony provided by witnesses – including those with lived experience of poverty, service providers, advocacy groups, researchers, and representatives from various levels of government. 

The Committee focused on current gaps and challenges, existing poverty reduction measures, and innovative practices that could be expanded upon or replicated in other communities.

The report examines five main themes associated with poverty reduction:

  • income security;
  • education, skills training and employment;
  • mental health;
  • housing; and
  • communities.

As poverty continues to be a reality in Canada despite significant resources and efforts allocated to reducing it. Breaking the Cycle makes 53 specific recommendations that aim to address poverty with greater engagement and support from key players with respect to all five themes.

How Big Data Is About to Explode Policymaking As We Know It: The Rise of Civil Analytics

Canada 2020 has released a new paper examining the ways open government, big data and predictive analytics are about to transform the way policy is made in Canada. The article looks at the era of big data and how policymakers can harness the power of "civil analytics" to improve evidence-based decision making. 

The era of Big Data is causing massive shifts in the way we think about policymaking in Canada. Civil analytics, as we have defined it, could help direct that transformation for the better. It's a fascinating, timely read - and one that Canada 2020 will be expanding on over the coming months as we unfold a new research series devoted to data, government and policymaking.

Income Inequality in Canada: Driving Forces, Outcomes and Policy

This chapter describes how inequality has increased significantly in Canada since the early 1980s, although the situation has stabilized since 2000 mainly as result of the resource boom. With the boom’s abrupt halt and signs of decline in income mobility, inequality could easily resume its upward path. Authors David Green, Craig Riddell and France St-Hilaire conclude that doing just more of the same policy-wise will not shelter Canada from these global trends. 

This chapter was published in Income Inequality: The Canadian Story. It is the result of a two-year collaboration between the IRPP and the Canadian Labour Market and Skills Researcher Network (CLRSN). As part of this project, twenty-seven leading economists and experts in the field examine income inequality trends in Canada, the factors contributing to its marked increase, and the role of policy in addressing the problem.
