A researcher is hoping to prepare maps for the incidence of low income by CSD from 1980 forward. She has found that the 1996 and 2001 Censuses publish the incidence rate of low-income at the census division level. Is this available for previous to 1996?
There is certainly ‘Incidence of low income’ in the 1991 profile files at the CSD level – it’s right down at the bottom of the list of characteristics in the 2B file, immediately before the household income categories. Ditto 1986. And it seems to be available in the 1981 census tract level profile file, so the prospect is good it’s in the CSD-level file too. For LICO prior to 1981, it would have to be obtained via a custom tabulation.
