The Economic Well-Being of Canadians: Is there a Growing Gap?

Printer-friendly version

This paper has two purposes. First and principally it is a critical examination of the evidence for a growing gap in Canada. The paper will attempt to look at inequality in a somewhat broader context than is customary. Evidence drawn largely from household-spending data files as well as from household facility-ownership data and household net-worth data can shed additional light on the trend in inequality for Canada. Second, the paper will examine the issue of data reliability in the context of the measurement of inequality.
