BAIncome and Income Gap Indicators Menu
- Among metro Edmonton tax-filers, a significant income gender gap persists.
- All of the income transfers from federal and provincial governments are included in after-tax income, showing that a significant income gender gap persists.
- The only discernable trend in this 15-year period is that the difference between female and male incomes shrinks when the economy slows (such as in the years 2009 and 2015) and expands when the economy is stronger. This could be due to the fact that men tend to work in industries that are more affected by economic ups and downs.
Income is perhaps the most important social determinate of health. The level of income affects an individual or family’s ability to access goods and services that shape their living conditions and quality of life. Individuals and families need an income to pay for child care, housing, post-secondary education, healthy food, and out-of-pocket medical costs. Individuals and families with low incomes may face difficulty affording basic necessities and may be at higher risk of poverty and social exclusion.
It is important to consider income against the rising costs of living. When the cost of living increases at a faster rate than incomes, more low- and modest-income families are at risk of poverty.
