Paying for somewhere to live is an unavoidable expense. Whether you rent or own it is recommended that no more than 30% of your income be spent on shelter costs. Is this 30% figure attainable for Canadians? In this post, we perform an analysis using r to find out, and make predictions for the future.We collected Census Data from the last National Household Survey, published in 2011 for this analysis. Data from the most recent Census is not available until later this year. Each result is presented as a map of Canada and embedded below are pdfs that can be zoomed in to highlight specific regions. The shelter costs as a % of gross income are white at 0% and become progressively redder as the costs increase up to 60%.
