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 ISQ, includes 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, including partnership income. Employment expenses and deductions are subtracted from employment income.
However, in the document Statistiques fiscales des particuliers published by the MFQ, net income of unincorporated businesses as well as QPIP and WEPP benefits are excluded from employment income.
