Socio Economic Inequalities in Housing Issues: Measurement and Beyond
PDF - Report
This study uses an innovative way of measuring poverty-related, affordability indicators among Canadian households. One of the measures used is the housing hardship indicator.
This indicator captures households that have insufficient income after paying their shelter costs to afford a modest, basic standard of living.
The measures proposed in the study go beyond the typical 30% affordability threshold. It reflects the prevalence, depth and severity of housing issues related to affordability, hardship, and housing-induced poverty.
These indicators help derive inequalities indices to offer insights into the socio economic inequalities between different vulnerable groups in Canada.
This report is part of the Research Insight series.
