1. It is important to note that the statistics on household 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 household 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.
2. Geographic boundary and name in force as at December 31, 2016.
3. GDP per capita is the ratio of the unduplicated value of goods and services produced in the economic territory of a region, not taking into account the place of residence of those receiving the income, to the total population of a region.
The method used to calculate regional GDP incorporates home-work commuting flow matrices by NAICS industry derived from special compilations by Statistics Canada. These compilations are based on data from the 2006 Census, the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS), and the 2016 Census. The commuting flow matrix based on the 2006 Census is applied to data covering the period from 2007 to 2009. The commuting flow matrix based on the 2011 NHS is applied to data covering the period from 2010 to 2014. The commuting flow matrix based on the 2016 Census is applied to data from 2015 and 2016. In some cases, the transition from one commuting flow matrix to another can lead to breaks in the series.
