This is an image of a clustered bar graph showing the average individual income, in constant 2005 dollars, of the population aged 15 years and over, by sex and identity group, in 2005. The source for the data used in the chart is: Statistics Canada, 2006 Census of Population.
The "average individual income" is defined as the weighted mean income of individuals 15 years of age and over who reported income for 2005. Average income is calculated from unrounded data by dividing the aggregate income of a specified group of individuals (e.g., males 45 to 54 years of age) by the number of individuals with income in that group.
The Y axis is measured by the level of income in constant 2005 dollars and increases by increments of $10,000 from $10,000 up to $100,000.
The X axis is comprised of four identity groups, from left to right are Registered Indian, Inuit, Métis and Non-Aboriginal.
Each identity group has two vertical bars, one for the female population and one for the male population, depicting the average individual income in constant 2005 dollars for each respective gender.
The average individual income in constant 2005 dollars is $20,743 for Registered Indian women and $25,785 for Registered Indian men in 2005.
