SHS Custom Tab


I have a researcher looking for Survey of Household Spending by category of spending and age, for the Greater Toronto Area, GTA. Is that available by custom tabulation?

(I tried checking which PUMFs on the DLI Nesstar had selected metropolitan areas, but the server seems to be having trouble loading, and the researcher is looking for more recent data than 2009 anyway).


The latest SHS PUMF available is for 2009 but I’m pretty sure it’s only at the CAN/PROV level. Custom SHS tabulations are available by select CMA only. We can produce data for the Toronto CMA, but not the Toronto GTA, on a cost recovery basis. The most current year available is 2012. Since 2010, CMA level data has only been available on a custom basis.
