For more information on the interpretation of the data please see the notes below.

Notes:

These notes apply to both the Graph and the Data Table.
  • Indicator Definition: Reported living in a household which is in core housing need (housing fails to meet at least one of three standards established for housing adequacy, suitability, and affordability, and household cannot afford alternative local housing)
  • Cells highlighted in yellow should be interpreted with caution, as the measure itself or at least one of the components used to calculate the value has a coefficient of variation between 16.6 to 33.3%.
  • Cells highlighted in red indicate that values have been suppressed because the measure itself or at least one of the components used to calculate the value has a coefficient of variation greater than 33.3%, a small numerator (<10), small denominator (<20), or empty age-standardization groups.
  • Cells highlighted in blue indicate that values have been suppressed because their interpretation is complex or not possible.
  • A dash (-) symbol indicates that the value was suppressed for one of the reasons described above, or that the calculation was not applicable.
  • When an indicator and a stratifier are crossed, the age interval is limited to that available in both the indicator and the stratifier.
  • Data are age-standardized to the 2016 Canadian population, using the following age groups: 1-14, 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65-74, 75+ years.
