1. The average employment income is obtained by dividing the sum of employment income by the number of taxfilers.
It is important to note that, although they come from the same data source, the statistics on the employment 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 developed by the Institut from personal tax data measure specific aspects of the labour market, in accordance with certain standards and practices adopted by national and international statistical agencies, while the taxation statistics published by the MFQ aim to present an overview of the Québec personal income tax system.
Employment income, as defined by the Institut, includes salaries and wages before deductions, tips, commissions, correction of employment income, other employment income, wage loss replacement benefits, Wage Earner Protection Program (WEPP) benefits, Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) benefits, as well as net income of unincorporated businesses. Employment-related expenses and deductions are subtracted from employment income.
However, in the statistics published by the MFQ (summary table 9 of the publication Statistiques fiscales des particuliers, année d'imposition 2013), employment income includes employment income, correction of employment income, other employment income, training allowances, and net research grants. It excludes net income of unincorporated businesses as well as QPIP and WEPP benefits.
2. Geographic boundary and name in force as at December 31, 2015. The geographical version of RCMs includes RCMs in the legal sense and RCM equivalent territories (ET), as well as aboriginal communities and northern villages located within the perimeter of RCMs or that constitute ETs.
3. Average annual growth rate.
