On September 13, 2017, Statistics Canada will release the fourth wave of data from the 2016 Census, covering income. For the first time, the 2016 Census gathered income information solely from administrative sources (tax records) and will be based on the entire population rather than a sampling. This change means the income data will be much more accurate, particularly for small geographic areas. In addition, StatsCan will release new data on contributions to government programs such as Registered Retirement Savings plans and tax-free savings accounts. In his fourth webinar in an ongoing series examining census results, demographic expert Dr. Doug Norris will discuss the new data and its implications for businesses, government agencies and not-for-profits.
Doug Norris will share insights on:
- The income levels of families and individuals not in families, and how they have changed over time and across the country
- Households’ sources of income
- The incomes by age and sex, and how they have changed over time
- The low-income populations of various population subgroups with a particular focus on children living in low-income households
- Household contribution rates for selected registered savings accounts
