1. Based on after-tax low-income cutoffs (LICOs), which indicate when a family may be in "straitened circumstances." This means that the family is likely to spend 20% more of its net income on basic items such as food, shelter and clothing compared with the average family, which leaves less money available for other expenses such as health, education, transportation and recreation.
Note: For a brief description of this indicator, including the methodology, please see the Handbook for the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program.
