Median income (of individuals) - The median income of a specified group of income recipients is that amount which divides their income size distribution into two halves, i.e., the incomes of the first half of individuals are below the median, while those of the second half are above the median. In this report, the term "income" refers to the total money income received from various sources during calendar years 2000 and 2005 by persons 15 years of age and over.
Inuit includes persons who reported an Inuit identity only.
'Inuit Nunaat' is the Inuit language expression for 'Inuit homeland,' a region extending from Northern Labrador to the Northwest Territories.
