DAWN Ontario: DisAbled Women's Network Ontario

March 8, 2006



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.

There is a lot of free information available in the Revenue Canada web site showing numbers of people in different income classes in Canada:

But you cannot find out how many men and how many women are in each income
category except if you make a special request and purchase this information
from Revenue Canada.

Note: If you use the graph in your work you are to remember to source the information (included at the bottom of the graph).

If you use this chart in your work, please remember to include the source information at the bottom of the chart.
This information had to be purchased ($90.40 + tax) from Revenue Canada.

There is free information on the Revenue Canada website showing how many tax filers in income classes
from $0 to 250,000 but it does not say how many men and how many women in each income category.
That information must be purchased from them as a special request.
