Federal Electoral District Statistics data

Geographic area

The Federal Electoral District Statistics (FEDS) tables present personal income tax data based on geographic area as per the 2013 Representation Order, allocating Canada's active postal codes into 338 federal electoral districts, commonly referred to as ridings or constituencies.

Note

The CRA uses the taxfiler's mailing address and postal code as it appears on the T1 Income Tax and Benefit Return to determine the forward sortation area, which is assigned when the return is assessed by the CRA.

Federal electoral district

Elections Canada defines a federal electoral district as any place or territorial area entitled to elect a Member of Parliament to serve in the House of Commons.

Federal electoral districts are constituencies that elect Members of Parliament to Canada's House of Commons. Provincial electoral districts often have names similar to their federal counterpart, but usually have different geographic boundaries.

Data source

Data were taken from income tax returns and related schedules filed by individuals for the 2017 tax year, for the following types of returns:

All other pertinent tax-free savings account (TFSA) information is obtained by the CRA through TFSA Information Declaration forms from the Financial Institutions.

Confidentiality procedures

To ensure the protection of taxpayer information, data have been suppressed where warranted. As well, counts are rounded to the nearest multiple of 10. For example, 104 would be rounded to 100 and 105 would be rounded to 110. Dollar amounts have been rounded to the nearest thousand in all tables.  Totals may not add up due to rounding or suppression.

Classification variables

The following variables are used in one or more of the tables in this publication:

Income classification

The income classes presented in the tables are based on the total income assessed. This corresponds to line 150 of the return and includes:

It does not include non-taxable income from the following sources:

Note

The income earned on any of these amounts is taxable.

Total income assessed

Total income assessed may differ from the true economic income presented in other publications because it does not include certain non-taxable income and it may include grossed-up income such as income from eligible dividends (which is the value plus 38%). Interest and investment income are also gross figures since carrying charges are not deducted. On the other hand, taxable capital gains are net amounts because only 50% of the gains realized in 2017 are reported.

Employment income includes

Pension income includes

Investment income includes

Note

It is possible to claim capital losses at line 127 for deceased tax filers. However, these amounts are not included in the total income calculation at line 150. They are deducted from the net income when calculating their taxable income at line 260. Therefore, this item only represents positive values found at line 127.

Self-employment income

Presented here corresponds to net income. In other words, it is gross income, less any adjustments and expenses incurred. It includes the following:

Social benefit payments

Social benefit payments include:

Other income

Other income includes:

Age classification

The age of the taxfiler is determined from the reported year of birth on page 1 of the T1 Income Tax and Benefit Return. For individuals who did not report a year of birth, their age is imputed by the CRA for statistical completeness.

Gender classification

For those taxfilers for whom no gender code is available (e.g. Individual Tax Number), one is imputed for statistical completeness.

As of October 23, 2017, the CRA began accepting third gender identification information to align with Treasury Board policy of gender-based reporting. The publication will adhere to the Treasury Board policy in future releases.  

Fair market value

Fair market value is usually the highest dollar value you can get for your asset in an open and unrestricted market and between a willing buyer and a willing seller who are knowledgeable, informed and acting independently of each other.

GST/HST credit items

GST/HST credit recipients

This is the number of recipients who received at least one GST/HST credit payment in the benefit year.

GST/HST credit payment amounts

This is the net GST/HST credit issued to a recipient, taking adjustments into account.

Eligible recipient

The recipient is a resident of Canada for income tax purposes in the month prior to and at the beginning of the month in which the GST/HST credit is issued, and meets at least one of the following eligibility criteria:

Number of dependent children

This refers to the number of dependent children per recipient. The children must be under 19 at the end of the tax year to be considered a qualified dependent. 

Shared custody situations can result in two recipients claiming entitlement for the same child, and being counted separately in the tables. For further details on shared custody situations, please refer to Shared custody.

CCB items

CCB recipients

This is the number of recipients who received at least one CCB payment in the benefit year.

CCB payment amounts

This is the net CCB payment issued to a recipient, taking adjustments into account.

Eligible recipient

To be eligible for the CCB, you must meet all of the following conditions:

Number of dependent children

This refers to the number of dependent children per recipient. Family sizes are determined as of the last issuance of the benefit year. A child must be under the age of 18 to be considered a qualified dependent.

“Children previously eligible” represents families that have no eligible dependent children as of the last issuance of the benefit year, but had at least one eligible child at some point during the benefit year. A child’s eligibility may have ended during the year for reasons such as: they turned 18; they moved away; they got married; they died; they had a child of their own; or they experienced a change of custody.

Shared custody situations can result in two recipients claiming entitlement for the same child, and being counted separately in the tables. For further details on shared custody situations, please refer to Shared Custody.
