The simulation page is a new feature in this edition of the CIMI. It allows users to view their predicted wages relative to their immigrant or Canadian-born counterpart (whichever applies) once they input their socio-demographic information.
The simulation model is based on linear regressions from the most recent Census (2016). The sample applied to this model includes: the adult population (aged 18 to 64), Canadian-born or immigrants (non-permanent residents are excluded), currently employed, working for wage, salary, tips or commission, and have wages from $1-$200,000. See the methodology overview for more details.
