Total income explorer, 2016 Census

Release date: September 13, 2017

This interactive chart shows selected percentile lines of individual total income by various categories: age, sex, provinces or territories, census years (1985 to 2015), or census metropolitan areas (CMAs) and census agglomerations (CAs). Enter an income value to view how it compares with the income percentiles for a selected category. The 95th percentile means 95% of the population with an income falls below this threshold, the 50th percentile is the median where 50% of the population is above and 50 percent is below. The 25th percentile means 75% of the population is above this threshold and 25% of the population is below. A corresponding table below the chart shows income percentiles for the selected category.

Percentile lines are presented in fifths from the 5th percentile to the 95th.

Changing any selection will automatically update the page content.
