Personal income per capita (and more!)


A patron is looking for any/all of the following:

Market income per capita
Disposable income per capita
Personal income per capita

Most importantly, he is looking for these variables from 1957-present (annually up to 5 year intervals) and he wants to compare provinces to the national average.

I think I can find some of these if I dig hard enough, but I was hoping someone might have a source at the tips of their
fingers. It could be a data or statistical source.


CANSIM table 380-0050 has personal income, personal disposable income, and income per capita, by province, annually from 1926-1990.

384-0012 has personal income and personal disposable income from 1980-2004, by province.

Any series that are totals can be divided by the estimated population for the same year, to produce per capita figures, no? The economists on this list will, I am sure, correct me if I am wrong here.

202-0201 has market income, from 1980-2003, for different economic family types, by province.

Since Stats Can defines market income as: Average market income is the sum of earnings (from employment and self-employment), investment income, (private) retirement income, and items under "Other income". It is equivalent to total income minus government transfers. see:

You should therefore be able to derive market income from 1961-1991 from appropriate series in CANSIM table 384-0034, and earlier numbers from the print volumes of the National income and expenditure accounts (13-531).

    fresh updates and will share this blog with my Facebook

  3. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

  6. There are also those who render physical therapy assistance to recuperating patients
    in hospitals. While in the past a basic personal trainer certification was
    sufficient, those candidates on the cutting edge of fitness industry
    standards now present themselves with a certification in addition to a bachelor's degree, as well as
    certifications in ancillary disciplines. Im glad that I made the decision to become a personal trainer.
