Ontario Well-Being Indicators

About the Well-Being Account and the Indicators:

Personal or household income is generally regarded as the single best measure of the degree to which people are "well off." Our concept of well-being includes more than economic indicators and takes the approach that other factors such as health and education play a part in determining a community's or region's well-being.

About the Colors:

In order to answer the question, "How is the area doing relative to all other communities in the province?" we take each community and line them up from lowest to highest based on the indicator values. This gives us our entire range of values. We then take the closest match to the lower 25% of communities, the middle 50% of communities, and the upper 25% of communities. The range of values representing this bottom range of communities is colored red, the top range is colored green and the range of values representing the middle group of communities is colored yellow. We then show where the value for your chosen geography falls (represented by the colored square), and from this you can determine how a community or region is doing compared to all communities in the province.
