Beginning with 2006, the distinction between full-year and part-year members and households has been removed. Spending data are collected for the reference year for all members of the household at the time of the interview. Since the data for the 1997-2005 were based on full-year members only, to maintain the comparability with prior years, the data for 1997-2005 have been revised to include both full-year and part-year households. Due to unreliability of the data which was the result of low sample size, the data for Québec, Ottawa and Victoria for 2008 were suppressed.
