Decade of Decline
This report provided important new data on the financial circumstances of Torontonians in the 1990s. While other research studies have examined income trends at the national and provincial levels in the 1990s, and in Toronto in the first half of the decade, this study was the first to focus on what happened to Torontonians during the entire decade. Tax-filer data were used to track income over the 10-year period, confirming that at the decade’s end, the financial situation of Torontonians had worsened significantly.
