1. It is important to note that the statistics on Disposable income presented in this table cannot be conceptually compared with the personal taxation statistics that are published annually by the ministère des Finances du Québec (MFQ) and are not intended for the same purposes. The indicators on Disposable income developed by the Institut measure specific aspects of the economy, in accordance with standards and practices adopted by national and international statistical agencies, while the taxation statistics published by the MFQ aim to present an overview of Québec's personal income tax system.
    
The household disposable income issued by the Institute is an aggregate of the System of National Accounts adopted by the United Nations and aims to better understand the macroeconomic evolution of a territory and allows for various national, regional and local comparisons. In addition to using tax data from Revenu Québec, the Institute uses a dozen data sources to estimate annual disposable household income. Disposable income is defined as the sum of all incomes received by households residing in a given territory, minus current transfers paid by them to certain institutional sectors. Specifically, it consists of employee remuneration, net income of unincorporated businesses, rental income of households and net property income. It also includes current transfers received by households from non-residents, non-profit institutions serving households (NPISH), financial corporations and from government, such as employment insurance benefits, Old Age Security and social assistance, less current transfers paid by households to non-residents, NPISH, financial corporations (contributions to pension plans) and government, such as income tax and contributions to social insurance plans.
