    According to the 2016 Census, the number of individuals living in Canada who reported Jewish ethnic origins was lower than the number who reported Jewish ethnic origins according to the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS).

It includes sections related to: different factors that may have caused the drop in reported Jewish ethnic origins; effects of changes to the list of ethnic origin examples over time; ethnic origin responses for those who dropped "Jewish" as a response in 2016; and sociodemographic characteristics of the population who changed their responses.

  • Articles and reports: 75F0002M2019001
    Description:

    The low-income rate is one of the most observed indicators of well-being, used to track changes in living standards and to identify groups at risk of social exclusion. Statistics Canada does not currently publish low-income rates for the on-reserve and Territorial populations, although other organizations have developed and published their own low-income statistics using Census or National Household Survey (NHS) data. This publication examines the concepts and methodologies underlying low-income indicators with the aim of providing guidance to users who wish to examine low income on reserve or in the Territories using Census or NHS data. It underlines data quality considerations such as incomplete enumeration on reserve. Other caveats include the fact that the low-income measure does not account for differences in the cost of living, and that Statistics Canada’s definition of income excludes many non-cash sources of income.
