Households Examined for Core Housing Need

Not all households enumerated by the Census of Canada can be assessed for core housing need. Housing adequacy and suitability can be measured for all households, while affordability can only be measured and interpreted for households that report positive incomes which exceed their shelter costs. Shelter-cost-to-income ratios (STIRs) for households with incomes less than or equal to zero, or STIRs derived from the census that are equal to or greater than 100% are considered uninterpretable by CMHC for the purpose of measuring affordability.

In addition, the Census did not and National Household Survey does not collect shelter cost data for farm households and households living in band housing on, or outside, reserves. Without shelter costs, CMHC is unable to assess these households for the affordability component of core housing need.

CMHC therefore examines core housing need on a reduced universe of households for which all three housing standards (adequacy, affordability and suitability) can be applied. This universe includes only non-farm, non-band, non-reserve households with incomes greater than zero and shelter-cost-to-income ratios less than 100%. As a result, we are providing you with reference counts to show how the reduced universe differs from the complete universe of all private households.

For more information on CMHC's housing standards, core housing need and shelter costs, please consult our Definitions.

HiCO Reference Counts

Reference household counts for Canada, the provinces and the territories are included below so that you may use them as a verification tool. Whenever you create a table from HiCO, we recommend that you include the total for Canada or at least one province or territory in your table. The total(s) you have included in your table(s) can then be checked against those we have provided in the reference count tables included below.

For example, if you create a table to study Canada, the reference count tables below show that you should have a total of 12,462,435 households in your table. This is the total number of households tested for core housing need in 2011.

For all the reference count tables:

Households excluded from examination for core housing need consist of households living on farms, on reserves or in band housing outside reserves as well as any households with incomes less than or equal to zero and/or shelter-cost-to-income ratios (STIRs) greater than or equal to 100%.

Households examined for core housing need include non-farm, non-band, non-reserve households with incomes greater than zero and STIRs less than 100%.

Note that, in 1999, Nunavut was established as a territory distinct from the Northwest Territories (N.W.T.). As a result, beginning with the 2001 Census, data for Nunavut are presented exclusive of N.W.T. To compare 2001 Census data for N.W.T. to N.W.T. data in earlier censuses, the 2001 data for the N.W.T. and Nunavut must be combined.
