Disposable income is an internationally recognized concept from the System of macroeconomic accounts. Disposable income is defined as the sum of all incomes received by the residents of a given territory, minus current transfers paid by them to other institutional sectors, including governments (income tax and contributions to social insurance plans) and financial corporations (contributions to defined-benefit pension plans).
Therefore, disposable income is the amount available to individuals for final consumption of goods and services and for voluntary savings.
The Bulletin sur le revenu disponible takes a break in 2020, but will return in 2021 in a completely new format.
The regional disposable income data for 2018, published by the Institut de la statistique du Québec in October 2020, will however be analyzed in the upcoming edition of Panorama des régions du Québec, to be released in November 2020.
