1. The number of workers is a measure developed by the Institut from Revenu Québec personal tax data (TP 1 and Schedule L) in order to monitor annual trends in employment in RCMs. That number is estimated based on the employment, business, employment insurance, last-resort financial assistance and retirement income reported by each individual. More specifically, a worker is a unit that corresponds to the proportion of employment and business income reported by an individual to the sum of that individual's employment, business, adjusted employment insurance, last-resort financial assistance and retirement income. For instance, an individual who, in a given year, reported $20,000 in employment income and $20,000 in adjusted employment insurance income will only be considered as employed for half of the year and will therefore be counted as 0.5 worker. In contrast, a worker who only reported employment or business income will count as 1.0 worker.
For the purposes of this calculation, the employment insurance amounts reported by individuals have been adjusted upward to make them comparable to employment income. According to the current employment insurance rules, the income replacement rate for that federal program, i.e. the proportion of employment income that is replaced by employment insurance benefits, stands at 55%. Employment insurance benefits reported by individuals are therefore adjusted to reflect an income replacement rate of 100%. Without that adjustment, employment would be overestimated.
