65 and over. In recent years, the pension may be partially or entirely
withheld at source or clawed back through the tax system if the family net
income exceeds a certain level. OAS pensioners whose family net income
fally under a certain level may also receive teh Guaranteed Income
SUpplement (GIS): The supplement incldues an allowance for spouses
aged 60 to 64 of OAS pensioners. Provincial supplements are not included
here, but in V25SR together with social assistance.

Pension is subject to a highly proportional income tax (higher income
pensioners repay part or all of their benefit through the tax system),
whereas the Guaranteed Income Supplement and the Allowance are only
granted under means-test.
WARNING: Also includes surviors' benefits.

Federal child tax benefits began in 1993 and replaced both the federal
Family Allowances and the Child Tax Credit. Several provincial and
territorial programs have since been introduced, in addition to Quebec
family allowances which already existed before 1993. To be eligible, a
person must have the primary responsibility for the care and upbringing of
one or more children under the age of 18. Most benefits are calculated by
setting a maximum amount per family or per child and reducing that total by
a certain percentage of the family's net income.

The programs which were explicitly accounted for in the data were the
federal basic benefit and National Child Benefit Supplement (together
called the Canada Child Tax Benefit, began in 1998), the Newfoundland
and Labrador Child Benefit (began in 1999), the Nova Scotia Child Benefit
(began in 1998), the New Brunswick Child Tax Benefit (began in 1997), the
New Brunswick Working Income Supplement (began in 1997), the Quebec
Allocation familiale (began in 1981), the Quebec Allocation à la naissance
(began in 1998), the Ontario Child Care Supplement for Working Families
(began in 1998), the Saskatchewan Child Benefit (began in 1998), the
Alberta Family Employment Tax Credit (began in 1997), the BC Family
Bonus (began in 1996), and the BC Earned Income Benefit (began in
1998).

Female spouse receives the benefit, otherwise the oldest family member is
given the benefit.

Employment Insurance is a federal program which includes the following
types of benefits: regular unemployment benefits, sickness benefits,
maternity and parental benefits, and benefits for persons taking approved
training courses or participating in job creation or job-sharing projects. To
qualify, the claimant must have ceased receiving employment income and
have worked a minimum number of weeks or hours of insurable
employment over the preceding period.
This corresponds to line 119 on the tax return.

Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax Credit was introduced in
conjunction with the Goods and Services Tax in 1990. It is intended to
offset the GST/HST for lower-income families and individuals. In Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador, its name was
changed to the Harmonized Sales Tax Credit in April 1997 when the
administration of the tax was combined with provincial sales tax.
Provincial/territorial tax credits are refundable tax credits other than those
for children (included with child tax benefits). Some are designed to help
low-income individuals and families to pay property taxes, education taxes,
rent and living expenses, and so on. Provincial sales tax credits such as
the Quebec Sales Tax Credit and the Newfoundland and Labrador HST
Credit are included. The Quebec abatement, although refundable, is not
included here but rather with income taxes.
No line exists for Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax Credit on
tax return; Provincial/territorial tax credits correspond to line 479 (or lines
455, 459, 460 and 462 on Quebec tax return).
Family member with highest net income receives the credit.

Supplement (GIS) for OAS recipients who have little or no other income is

Social assistance covers many provincial and municipal income
supplements to individuals and families. It is usually provided only after all
other possible sources of support have been exhausted. In Canada there
are many social assitance programs with many different names, depending
on the municipality and province; some are general, and others are for
specific needs like child care, housing, health care expenses, or earnings
supplements.
Starting in 1999, all social assistance is assigned to the female spouse (or
the older spouse in a same-sex couple).
This corresponds to line 145 on the tax return.

This is retirement pensions from all private sources, primarily employer
pension plans, but also include pensions form deferred profit sharing plans
and other pension plans.. Amounts may be received in various forms such
as annuities, superannuation or RRIFs (Registered Retirement Income
Funds). Withdrawals from RRSPs (Registered Retirement Savings Plans)
are not included in retirement pensions. However, they are taken into
account as necessary for the estimation of certain government transfers
and taxes. For data obtained from administrative records, income
withdrawn from RRSPs before the age of 65 is treated as RRSP
withdrawals, and income withdrawn from RRSPs at ages 65 or older is
treated as retirement pensions. Retirement pensions may also be called
pension income.
This corresponds to lines 115 and 129 on the tax return.




These are amounts such as benefits under a court order or written
agreement received by the respondent or someone else on the
respondent's behalf to maintain the respondent, his chidren or both.
This corresponds to line 128 on tax return plus any amounts for child
support.
Support payments are covered by an agreement to pay a fixed amount on a
regular basis; all other gifts or transfers of money are excluded. Only
support payments actually paid are included.
This corresponds to line 220 on the tax return.




This subtotal includes all items of market income not included elsewhere.
The coverage of the items depends at least to some extent on the method
of income data collection, whether from administrative income tax records
or by interview. Those items that are included on line 130 of the T1 tax
return are well covered. These include, but are not restricted to, retiring
allowances (severance pay/termination benefits), scholarships, lump-sum
payments from pensions and deferred profit-sharing plans received when
leaving a plan, the taxable amount of death benefits other than those from
CPP or QPP, and supplementary unemployment benefits not included in
wages and salaries.
Are excluded the following amounts: proceeds for the sale of property,
businesses, financial assets or personal belongings; income tax refunds;
loans received; loans repaid to the respondent as the lender; refunds of
contributions to work-related pension plans.

Reported as for tax purposes.

The weight inflates to total popualtion (for estimates of persons, the weight

The head of the household is defined as the major income earner, i.e. the
person with the highest income before tax during 2004; for persons with
negative total income before tax, the absolute value of their income is used,
to reflect the fact that negative incomes generally arise from losses
“earned” in the market place and are not meant to be sustained. In the rare
situations where two persons have exactly the same income, the older
person is the major income earner.
The original data only supplies the relationship to the major income earner
in economic family and not in household. Therefore, the correct relationship
to household head was only available for all persons in single family
households, and for persons from the same economic family as that of the
main income earner; for persons from other families than that of the main
income earner the relationship had to be recoded to "other", since it was
not possible to recreate the relationship to the head of household.

Partnership status reflects civic status (married or common-law partners)
for persons who are not head or spouses.

WARNING: Because of confidentiality reasons, this information is only
available for persons living in urban areas with at least 500,000 inhabitants

Individuals who have attended more than one type of education during the
reference year, will be coded according to the highest level education
attended.

Please note that this is labour force status for an entire month, and is not
directly comparable to those surveys that more closely follow the ILO
guidelines (with information on a specific week within the month, such as
the one produced by the Canadian Labour Force Survey on the same
sample).
The employed include those absent from work; the unemployed are
comprised of (1) general, (2) looking for work, and (3) temporary layoff and
not looking for work. Those in the armed forces could not be separately
identified from information given by the data provider.
The questionnaire provided a more detailed spectrum of possible answers
but some categories have been lumped into other (looking for work,
keeping house, caring for other family members incl. young children, long-
term illness or disabled, doing volunteer work, no main activity, other).
Please note that the question underlying this variable was rephrased from
main acitvity during the reference year to main activity at the end of the
reference year, and thus the same variable was put in PUMAS for the 1998
dataset and in PCMAS in the 2000 and 2004 ones.

See PSLOT2 for an annual labour force status derived by the data provider
following the ILO definition of employment.




See PSLOT1 for scheduled annual paid hours.
In the original data, partial weeks at the beginning and end of the year are
counted as full weeks resulting in as many as 53 weeks. LIS rescaled
weeks work to be reported weeks×(52/53) rounded to the nearest week.




While it is possible to distinguish full-year workers from part-year workers,
the number of weeks worked is not present in the data. Non-workers and
full-time workers are assigned the number of weeks worked (0 and 52,
respectively), while part-year workers are distinguished using the 900
codes.

These are gross earnings from all jobs held as an employee, before payroll
deductions such as income taxes, employment insurance contributions or
pension plan contributions, etc. Wages and salaries include the earnings of
owners of incorporated businesses, although some amounts may instead
be reported as investment income. Commission income received by
salespersons as well as occasional earnings for baby-sitting, for delivering
papers, for cleaning, etc. are included. Overtime pay is included.
Military personnel living in barracks are not part of the target population in
SLID.
Corresponds to lines 101 and 104 on the tax return.


Implicit hourly wage for main paid worker job at the end of the reference
year or end of teh job if it ended during hte reference year. The amount
includes tips, bonuses and commissions.
For respondents who reported their wage or salary at this job as an hourly
amount, the value is taken directly. For respondents who reported their
wage or salary on some other basis, the amount is converted to an hourly
"implicit" rate, based on the corresponding usual hours per week, weeks
per month, and so on, as relevant.
Paid worker jobs with zero paid hours are assigned the value "not
applicable" by the data provider (and hence 0 in LIS).


This is net self-employment income, i.e. after deduction of expenses.
Negative amounts (losses) are accepted. It includes income received from
self‑employment on own account, in partnership in an unincorporated
business, or in independent professional practice. Income from roomers
and boarders (excluding that received from relatives) is included. Note that
because of the various inclusions, receipt of self-employment income does
not necessarily mean the person held a job.
Self-employment income is subdivided into farm self-employment income
and non-farm self-employment income. Farm self-employment income is
reported by individuals who operate their own or a rented farm, either on
own account or in partnership. Included are money receipts from the sale of
farm products as well as related supplementary and assistance payments
from governments. Income in kind is excluded.


Income tax is the sum of federal and provincial income taxes payable
(accrued) for the taxation year. Total income taxes include taxes on
income, capital gains and RRSP withdrawals, after taking into account
exemptions, deductions, non-refundable tax credits, and the refundable
Quebec abatement, but LIS subtracted from the total amount an estimate
of the taxes on capital gains and RRSP withdrawals and put them - at the
household level only - in V14, as these incomes are not part of total GI so
the corresponding taxes on them should not be subtracted from GI (see
V14).
In the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics, the data are either taken
directly from administrative records or estimated based on aggregate data
from administrative records, as this yields better results than the amounts
reported by interview. Correspond to line 420 minus line 440, as well as line
428 of the tax record.

Public health insurance premiums are applicable for residents of Alberta
and British Columbia, depending on family net income; equal zero for
residents of other provinces.
The survey collected contributions paid towards registered pension plan
(RPP, - the so-called employer-sponsored pension plans), but just as the
benefits from those plans are not included among social transfers, the
contributions are not considered among social contributions.
