Notes:
Median earnings are earnings levels that divide the population into two halves, i.e., half of the population receiving less than this amount, and half, more. Earnings or employment income, refers to the income received by persons 15 years of age and over during calendar year 2005 as wages and salaries, net income from a non-farm unincorporated business and/or professional practice, and/or net farm self-employment income.
Inuit includes persons who reported an Inuit identity only.
Worked full-year, full-time refers to perons who worked 49 to 52 weeks in the reference year, mostly full time. (i.e. 30 hours or more per week)
'Inuit Nunaat' is the Inuit language expression for 'Inuit homeland,' a region extending from Northern Labrador to the Northwest Territories.
