Estimates of core housing needs in an area are derived by comparing the incomes of households currently living in unacceptable housing with the incomes that are required to access adequate, suitable and affordable housing in their communities. This percentage figure is known as the Core Need Income Thresholds. In 2001, Niagara had a 12.9% Core Housing Need estimate and this was better than 15.1% for Ontario and 13.7% for Canada.
