OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says median, after-tax income for families of two or more people amounted to $65,500 in 2010, virtually unchanged from 2009.

It says that was the third consecutive year without significant change in after-tax income.

Two-parent families with children had a median, after-tax income of $78,800 in 2010.

The median for female, lone-parent families was $38,700, while families headed by a senior had a median after-tax income of $46,800.

For singles, median after-tax income was also unchanged in 2010, with non-seniors at $27,500 and seniors at $23,400.

After-tax income is the total of earnings, private pensions, income from investments and other sources, less income tax.
