Characteristics of individuals, tax filers and dependants by sex, marital status and age groups

  • Marital status

The marital status “Common Law” is reported in this table. This is as a result of the Canada Revenue Agency providing tax filers with a separate box permitting common-law couples to indicate their marital status. For data prior to 1992, it is undetermined where common-law couples would have reported their marital status on the individual income tax return

For data prior to 1992, demographic characteristics are provided for tax filers only.

Web Table 11-10-0005-01 (formerly CANSIM Table 111-0005)

For more information on these tables, see the Technical Reference Guide.

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.
