Purchasing Power Canada Municipalities

This map represents the purchasing power data from Canada on municipality level. This purchasing power data provides more insight into the purchasing power of Canada. The purchasing power gives more insights into the purchasing power patterns of Canadian consumers. This dataset represents the total purchasing power and is compiled from purchasing power data of multiple product groups:

  • Accessories
  • Clothing/Apparel
  • Shoes
  • Food and Beverages
  • Alcohol
  • Food and Beverages (Out-of-Home)
  • Household Products (Non-Electrical)
  • Household Maintenance
  • Home Appliances
  • Furniture and Home Decoration
  • Tools and Gardening
  • Books, Newspapers and Magazines
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Recreation and Hobbies
  • Personal Care
  • Healthcare Products
The data on this map is divided by municipality and is calculated per index. An index helps to compare consumer behavior between different areas. The countrywide average is seen as the base for the calculation (countrywide average = 100). If the inhabitants of one area spend more on accessories than the countrywide average, the index for this area will be higher than 100. An index of for example 200 for an area means that people in this area spend twice as much on accessories than the average person of that country.
Besides data about the total spending we also offer the spending of the separate product groups
