- Footnote 1
Presence of mortgage - Refers to whether the owner households reported mortgage or loan payments for their dwelling.
- Footnote 2
Shelter-cost-to-income ratio - Percentage of a household's average total monthly income which is spent on shelter-related expenses. Those expenses include the monthly rent (for tenants) or the mortgage payment, property taxes and condominium fees (for owners) and the costs of electricity, heat, municipal services, etc. The percentage is calculated by dividing the total shelter-related expenses by the household's total monthly income and multiplying the result by 100.
The relatively high shelter costs to household income ratios for some households may have resulted from the difference in the reference period for shelter costs and household total income data. The reference period for shelter cost data is 2011, while household total income is reported for the year 2010. As well, for some households, the 2010 household total income may represent income for only part of a year.
Household total income - The total income of a household is the sum of the total incomes of all members of that household. Total income refers to the total of income from all sources, including employment income, income from government programs, pension income, investment income and any other money income, before income taxes and deductions, during the calendar year 2010.
- Footnote 3
For the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) estimates, the global non-response rate (GNR) is used as an indicator of data quality. This indicator combines complete non-response (household) and partial non-response (question) into a single rate. The value of the GNR is presented to users. A smaller GNR indicates a lower risk of non-response bias and as a result, lower risk of inaccuracy. The threshold used for estimates' suppression is a GNR of 50% or more. For more information, please refer to the National Household Survey User Guide, 2011.
- Footnote 4
Refers to the status of a household with regard to the usual place of residence of household members on the reference day, May 10, 2011, in relation to their usual place of residence on the same date five years earlier. Non-mover households are households where at least one member was living at the same address from the one at which they resided five year earlier. Mover households are households where all members (except those not yet born) were living at a different address from the one at which they resided five year earlier.
- Footnote 5
Includes mover households where at least one member was living within the same census subdivision five years earlier.
- Footnote 6
Includes mover households where all members were not living within the same census subdivision five years earlier.
- Footnote 7
Value of dwelling - Refers to the dollar amount expected by the owner if the dwelling were to be sold.
