Executive Summary
|
Full Report
|
Press Release

Halifax is often seen as a city that has less income inequality across its neighbourhoods than other Canadian cities, however, income inequalities do persist. This project examines income inequality in Halifax using Census data and tax records to track and map the socio-spatial patterning of income in the municipality's neighbourhoods between 1980 and 2015. Trends are compared to other major cities. The project is a collaboration among the Neighbourhood Change Research Partnership, the Perceptions of Change Project, and United Way Halifax.
