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).
