The Liquid Assets Dashboard represents the modeled estimate of 2016 mean liquid assets of economic families and persons not in economic families at the census division (CD) level which is produced by Statistics Canada. Two data sets were used to obtain the final estimates: the 2016 Survey of Financial Security (SFS) and the 2016 Census of Population.
The data include two estimates of mean liquid assets :
- Method 1 built the model using all liquid asset estimates from the Survey of Financial Security. This dashoard represents method 1.
- Method 2 built the model using all liquid asset estimates from the Survey of Financial Security, except for the top 1% of the distribution of liquid assets.
