Abstract

Data from the 1981 and 1986 census show that income differentials between Francophones and Anglophones are wider when measured through total income rather than labour income. Furthermore these differentials become much larger, except in Quebec, when language spoken at home rather than mother tongue is used as the linguistic base. Les données des recensements de 1981 et 1986 démontrent que les écarts bruts de revenus entre francophones et anglophones sont beaucoup plus substantiels lorsqu’on considère les revenus totaux plutôt que les revenus de travail. Cet écart défavorable aux francophones est nettement accentué si la base linguistique est la langue parlée à la maison plutôt que la langue maternelle, partout sauf au Québec.
