Annual household distribution tables, provisional estimates of asset, liability and net worth distributions, 2010 to 2016: CS13-604/83E-PDF

technical methodology and quality report.

"This paper presents in detail the methodology used to develop provisional distributions of household net worth for the reference years 2010 to 2016. It begins with a description of the international framework of the OECD Expert Group on Disparities within the National Accounts (EG DNA) which provides recommendations on producing distributional information aligned with System of National Accounts concepts; followed by Statistics Canada’s implementation of each step. These include the adjustments to the National Accounts totals; a description of the micro-data sources; the methodology for the derivation of indicators in survey years and non-survey years; and a description of the potential sources of error. A large section of the paper focuses on the methodology for years in which survey data is not available. In these years, modelling is required to derive wealth distributions. The modelling approach will be described as well as the various adjustments required to ensure internal consistency of the tables and consistency with the macroeconomic totals"--Overview, p. 4.
