Compares hard data on the economy, health and crime to polling information on how Canadians perceive they are faring in these three areas. Found that Canadians have a little more spending money in their pockets and more confidence in their job security, but they are less satisfied with the ability of their incomes to meet their basic needs – and increasingly anxious about Canada’s health and social safety nets.
