I see that the government use the net worth of the median household, but they don't check the individual net worth instead. I was wondering if there was any source for this. The only thing I found is this web page, but it doesn't seem to be accurate, so I was wondering if there was a way to measure it or a place that showed this statistics, or a way to accurately infer the individual net worth for each working adult.

Found this, but it doesn't include the statistics I want, but a useful statistics I found is the target for singles and couples.

    How would you get "individual net worth" for two married people that have joint ownership of everything?

  • you need to plan out your retirement by seeing how well you compare to the average person, and then checking what some people would recommend you having at X age. Because I am single, it's hard to interpret median household income and what it means for me.

    "you need to plan out your retirement by seeing how well you compare to the average person, and then checking what some people would recommend you having at X age. " I understand what you mean about wanting a reference point for yourself, but be careful of using an average like this to plan for yourself - the rules of thumb will be too generic to be more than a starting point.

You are a "Persons not in an economic family" Check statscan for tables.

Here's Assets and Debts. You can also find a table for income etc.., you can change the province or age etc.. This all comes from a "Survey of Financial Security" that Canada does every so often. You can read them all.
