Income of immigrants: Saskatchewan, 2011

Released: 2014-05-14

Data from the Longitudinal Immigration Database for Saskatchewan are now available for 1980 to 2011. Tables at the Canada level were released in The Daily on December 23, 2013.

  Note to readers

The Longitudinal Immigration Database provides information on immigrant economic outcomes. It was created to respond to the need for detailed and reliable data on the outcome and impact of immigration policy levers. It allows the analysis of different categories of immigrants over a period long enough to assess the impact of immigrant characteristics at landing, such as education and knowledge of French or English, on their settlement outcome.

The database combines an Administrative Landing File with the T1 Family File through exact matching record-linkage techniques. The overall linkage rate is approximately 80%. The population includes immigrants who landed between 1980 and 2011 and who filed taxes at least once between 1982 and 2011.

A more detailed description of immigrant admission categories from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is available on the CIC website (www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/glossary.asp).
