The Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID) is a longitudinal survey initiated to produce estimates from 1993 onwards. The survey was designed to measure changes in the economic well-being of Canadians as well as the factors affecting these changes. The SLID sample is comprised of two panels made of around 15,000 households each. A panel remains in the survey for six consecutive years and a new panel is rotated in every three years.
