This section presents results for households in the provinces, territories and selected census metropolitan areas.
Information about tenure (owned, rented and band housing), period of construction, condition of dwelling, number of persons per room and household income is presented for all households in private occupied dwellings.
Information about presence of mortgage, condominium status, shelter costs and value of dwelling excludes farms and Indian reserves. When discussing the percentage of households spending 30% or more of their income on shelter, households with negative or zero incomes are excluded from the analysis.
At the national level, and for most provinces and territories, 98% or more of private occupied dwellings are included in all analyses. However, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon Territory have higher proportions of farms and/or Indian reserves. This affects the number of households available for analysis.
Dollar values in this section are in current dollars. That is, they have not been adjusted for inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index.
