description:
The Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF) is conducted annually to obtain work experience and income information from Canadian households. The Survey provides up-to-date information on the distribution and sources of income, before and after taxes, for families and individuals. With this file, users may identify specific family types, such as two-parent and lone-parent families.Information is also provided on earnings, transfers, and total income for the head and the spouse of the census family unit, as well as personal and labour-related characteristics.This is the twenty-first selected year starting with 1971 for which microdata files on census family incomes are being released. Some of the more important changes in concepts and variables released over that period are described in the "Notes for Users of Historical Series of SCF Files" section found in the Users Guide in the Other Materials section below. Note: Commencing with the 1998 microdata files, annual cross-sectional income data will be sourced from the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics(SLID).
