Characteristics of individuals, Labour income profile of individuals
The Labour Income Profile table is divided into the categories below. A brief description of each category follows. See also the Glossary.
- Tax filers and dependants: This represents an estimate of the total population as derived from the tax file. Included here are tax filers, their non-filing spouse and their children; the latter can be filing or non-filing children. Spouses and children can be identified by the information on a tax filer’s return, from T4 records and from Federal Child Benefits.
- Number: The total number of tax filers and imputed spouses reporting income for the period represented in the data table.
- Amount ($’000): The total amount of reported and imputed income, expressed in thousands of dollars.
- Median ($): Half of the population reported less than or equal to the median income, and the other half reported more than or equal to the median. See glossary for further explanation.
- Provincial Index (Province = 100): The median income for the area is expressed as a percentage of the median income for the province.
- Canadian Index (Canada = 100): The median income for the area is expressed as a percentage of the median income for Canada.

Starting with 2019 data, the majority of the T1FF tables (Family, Individual and Senior tables) will include data for Census Subdivision geographies. Records with Census Subdivision level data are indicated in the "Level of geo" column with the value 71. If you are using Census Subdivision level data from the T1FF, please consult the "T1FF_CSD_Quality_Note.docx" document included in the file package. The included Excel file provides a comparison between intercensal population estimates and the T1FF population estimates. The difference between these values should inform the user as to whether T1FF data at the CSD is reliable or not.
