51. Median total income for males
All income values are in constant (2005) dollars.
Total income refers to the total money income received from the following sources during calendar year 2005 by persons 15 years of age and over:
Receipts not counted as income - The income concept excludes gambling gains and losses, lottery prizes, money inherited during the year in a lump sum, capital gains or losses, receipts from the sale of property, income tax refunds, loan payments received, lump sum settlements of insurance policies, rebates received on property taxes, refunds of pension contributions, as well as all income 'in kind,' such as free meals, living accommodations, or agricultural products produced and consumed on the farm.
Median income of individuals - The median income of a specified group of income recipients is that amount which divides their income size distribution, ranked by size of income, into two halves, i.e., the incomes of the first half of individuals are below the median, while those of the second half are above the median. Median income is calculated from the unrounded number of individuals (e.g., males 45 to 54 years of age) with income in that group.
Canadian censuses were conducted in 1996, 2001 and 2006. Income data from these censuses relate to the calendar year prior to the census year, i.e., 1995, 2000 and 2005, respectively. For additional information, please refer to the 2006 Census Dictionary, Catalogue no. 92-566-XWE.
