Product affected

Data table 98-400-X2016228 – Shelter Cost (12), Tenure Including Presence of Mortgage Payments and Subsidized Housing (7), Shelter-cost-to-income Ratio (9), Household Total Income Groups (14) and Household Type Including Census Family Structure (16) for Owner and Tenant Households in Non-farm, Non-reserve Private Dwellings of Canada, Provinces and Territories, Census Metropolitan Areas and Census Agglomerations, 2016 Census – 25% Sample Data

Revised date

February 9, 2018


On February 1, 2018, a discrepancy was detected in the data table listed above. Approximately 5.3% of the data cells in the table are incorrect. This is due to a processing error that occurred when two input tables used to create the final dissemination table were joined. This led to an error in the Household Type Including Census Family Structure (16) variable in some cases. The underlying microdata are correct.

The problem affects all geographic levels in the data table.

This issue does not have an impact on the published analysis or any of the other housing data tables or other standard products.


The data for the data table have been corrected and reloaded. New download files have also been generated and loaded.
