Employment & Income

Labour Force & Employment

Please Note!

The Labour Force and Employment graph uses absolute numbers, so it will be difficult to compare geographies with large populations (i.e. Peel) to areas of small populations (i.e. Ward). You may need to view geographies with small populations on their own, or visit Open Data.

What is the Labour Force?

Refers to persons who, during the week of Sunday, May 1 to Saturday, May 7, 2016, were either employed or unemployed.

Individuals that are not in the labour force are people that are 15 years old or over and are neither employed nor actively looking for work.

Did you know?

For the first time in 2016, income information was solely collected using Canada Revenue Agency records such as tax and benefits data. The use of government records increases the quality of income data.

Income questions were not a part of the 2016 Census. Instead, income data was collected from the Canada Revenue Agency. 2016 income data cannot be directly compared to 2011 National Household Survey data.

Low Income

What is the Low Income Measure?

Low-income measure after tax (LIM-AT) is a fixed percentage (50%) of median adjusted after-tax income of households observed at the person level, where 'adjusted' indicates that a household's needs are taken into account. Adjustment for household sizes reflects the fact that a household's needs increase as the number of members increase, although not necessarily by the same proportion per additional member.
