Articles and reports: 75F0002M2004012


This study compares income estimates across several statistical programs at Statistics Canada. It examines how similar the estimates produced by different question sets are.

Income data are collected by many household surveys. Some surveys have income as a major part of their content, and therefore collect income at a detailed level; others collect data from a much smaller set of income questions. No standard sets of income questions have been developed.
