The working poor and the income inequality tables exclude populations on Indian reserves and in the 3 northern territories, since both the income and the expenditure patterns can be quite different for the population in those areas.
This table is available for Census Subdivision geographies. Due to the relatively poor quality of the coverage for some CSDs (mostly in rural areas and low population areas), T1FF data at the CSD level should be used with caution. Refer to the T1FF/population count comparison table to determine the quality of coverage.
Statistics Canada does not accept responsibility for any direct or indirect consequences associated with under coverage or over coverage in T1FF data at the CSD level.
The document "T1FF_CSD_Quality_Note.pdf" contains the methodology used to link postal geography and census geography.
The tables also include FSAs (true complete FSA, both urban and rural, not split by postal cities; listed as Geo level 03) and all rural postal codes (listed as Geo level 06). Geo Level 3 also includes residual counts listed as “Other Provincial Total”. This is where FSAs with less the 100 tax filers are grouped together at the province level. Since FSAs almost always have more than 100 tax filers, some provinces will not have an “Other Provincial Total”. The assignment of Geo Level 03 and 06 can potentially lead to confusion since these are slightly different than same levels of geo in the other tables produced for the client and in standard tables. In the Working Poor and Income Inequality tables the Geo Level 03 is for true FSAs both urban in rural, while in the standard tables Geo Level 03 is only for partial urban FSAs (postal codes not associated with regular residential mail delivery are excluded) and these are sometime split by postal cities. As for rural postal code listed as Geo Level 6 in the Working Poor and Income Inequality tables, this is actually a combination of the Geo Level 06 (rural postal codes in a postal city) and Level 09 (rural postal codes outside a postal city).
Place Names are included in the data tables.
Note that "Rural Postal Code (not in city)" and "Rural Community" are interchangeable.
