Taxfiler: Annual Income Estimates for Census Families and Individuals (T1 Family File)
Known colloquially as “Taxfiler data”, these data are collected primarily from income tax returns submitted to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). Taxfiler data provides income and demographic information for smaller geographic areas.
- These data cover all persons who completed a T1 tax return for the year of reference, who received CCTB (Canada Child Tax Benefits), their non-filing spouses (including wage and salary information from the T4 file), their non-filing children identified from three sources (the CCTB file, the birth files, and an historical file) and filing children who reported the same address as their parent.
- As part of the Simcoe County Data Consortium, SMDHU has access to custom data sets purchased from Statistics Canada through the national Community Data Program. These include Taxfiler datasets at custom and smaller geographic levels not publicly available through Statistics Canada. Taxfiler data accessed through the Consortium are available at the Simcoe County and District of Muskoka Census Division level.
