This release is accompanied by an historical revision for 2006 to 2009. Beginning in 2006, survey estimates from the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics are produced on the basis of population counts based on the 2006 Census of Population, instead of the 2001 Census. As a consequence, the Low Income Measures (LIMs), low income rates and low income gap ratios, as well as all estimates in the CANSIM 202 series were revised for that period. While the actual levels of the estimates have changed in many situations, broadly speaking, the trends shown by the data remain very similar. For more information about the impact of this revision, please refer to the What's new section of the 2010 SLID Survey Overview. Note that survey estimates prior to 2006 were not revised.
