CIMI values may be slightly different from other sources like Statistics Canada because:

  1. the CIMI only applies to adults aged 18 to 64 who are Canadian-born or permanent residents (non-permanent residents are excluded); and/or
  2. the CIMI values are either from Statistic Canada’s Public Use Micro Data Files (PUMF) or Master data files depending on availability – there are minor discrepancies between these two data sources.

See the resources page for spreadsheets with notes about the filters and data sources per dimension. Be sure to refer to them carefully when comparing CIMI values with other sources.
