Table 2: Income Inequality

The table is intended to allow the following analysis:

  • A ratio of incomes at different percentile and decile thresholds (Deciles 1 through 10, 99th percentile top 1% e.g. top 10% to bottom 10%, etc…); and,
  • A comparison of the value of the share of total after tax income received by the population above or below any given decile or percentile threshold (e.g. the top 1 percentile earned x% of all income, while the bottom 4 deciles earned y%).

Note that the deciles for this indicator are created using adjusted after-tax family income, in which a family's total income is divided by the square root of the family size and assigned to every member of the family, including children.  The deciles are calculated across the population of individuals, who are all assigned this adjusted family income.

Please read the Methodology Notes associated with these tables. The section 'Additional Methodology Notes' outlines changes that have been made to the method used to produce these tables. If you are planning on using the Census Subdivision level of geography, please read the 'T1FF_CSD_Quality_Note.docx' document.



Place Names are included in the data tables. 

Note that "Rural Postal Code (not in city)" and "Rural Community" are interchangeable.
