Methodology

Personal disposable income (PDI) is calculated by subtracting direct income taxes as well as the various other contributions paid (employment insurance, Quebec pension plan, etc.) from personal income.

Per capita PDI is simply the total of all personal disposable income divided by the total population.

This data is provided quarterly by the Conference Board of Canada in annualized form. Annualizing quarterly data (multiplying it by four) makes it possible to compare quarterly performance with the annual result.

This data is also deseasonalized, eliminating the impact of seasonal variations and making it possible to compare data throughout the year.
