Data include the total number of donors, their average age, their total and median donations, their median total income, the average donation by age group and the percentage of donors by sex, age group or income group.
Data for some geographic areas are available since 1990. The latest data (2017) can be requested for selected levels of postal and census geographies. The statistics are derived from a preliminary version of the annual taxfile provided by the Canada Revenue Agency.
Data for census metropolitan areas are available since 1993 and census divisions, since 1995.
The summary table from this series is available starting with 1990 data. Table 2 was introduced with the 1995 data and table 3, with the 1997 data.
