Notes 

Only private, non-farm, non-reserve owner- or renter-households with incomes greater than zero are assessed for 'core housing need'.

Data Sources

Statistics Canada - National Household Survey (2011), Census (2016).

Measurement and Limitations

Every five years Statistics Canada carries out a census of the people of Canada. On May 10, 2016 a census was performed. All Canadian citizens and landed immigrants with a usual place of residence in Canada were counted. As well, non-permanent residents were counted. This includes: refugee claimants and their family living in Canada, as well as, permit holders (work or study permits) and members of their family living with them.

The National Household Survey was voluntary, whereas the Census of 2016 was mandatory.

For the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) estimates, the global non-response rate (GNR) is used as an indicator of data quality. This indicator combines complete non-response (household) and partial non-response (question) into a single rate. A smaller GNR indicates a lower risk of non-response bias and as a result, lower risk of inaccuracy. The threshold used for estimates' suppression is a GNR of 50% or more. The GNR for Perth County in 2011 was 27.4% and for Huron County was 31.6%. These numbers meet the threshold, but are not insignificant. 

This indicator describes some of the housing costs owners and renters have in our communities. This information tells us whether people in our communities are at greater risk of homelessness or poor health.

There three aspects of core housing need: Affordability, Adequacy and Suitability. Households that spend greater than 30% of their before-tax income on housing do not have Affordable housing and are considered to be at greater risk of homelessness. Living in Unaffordable housing may affect their health because they have less to spend on food, physical activity, medicine, and transportation.  A family's house is Inadequate if it is in need major repair. A home is Unsuitable if it is overcrowded.  

Patterns and Trends

Whereas a small proportion of houses are Inadequate or Unsuitable, a substantial proportion of houses are Unaffordable for their occupants.
