Below is a good depiction of women's economic reality
compared to men's.
It's an analysis done using 2004 Revenue Canada data by the Women's
Economic Justice Project. They paid for this data (with funding
from Status of Women Canada BC/Yukon Region) and created a bar graph
showing the income breakdown according to men and women.
Their findings showed
that there are 8.3 million women versus 5.6 million men in the lowest
income categories ($0-30,000) but also in each higher income group,
there are more men that women.
This chart data shows that there are 8.3 million women vs. 5.6 million
men in Canada
