  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2001176
    Description:

    Since the Job Vacancy Survey conducted by Statistics Canada between 1971 and 1978, there is no data which directly measures job vacancies in Canada. Using data from the 1999 Workplace and Employee Survey (WES), we attempt to fill this gap. We study the determinants of job vacancies at the location level. We find that workplaces with high vacancy rates consist of at least two types: 1) those employing a highly skilled workforce, innovating, adopting new technologies increasing skill requirements, facing significant international competition and operating in tight local labour markets, and 2) those which are non-unionized, operate in retail trade and consumer services industries and are not part of a multi-location firm. As a result, a substantial share of job vacancies are not in the high-technology sectors. More than 40% of all job vacancies and 50% of long-term vacancies originate from retail trade and consumer services industries.

  • Table: 71-583-X
    Description:

    This overview report provides the first data from a new pilot survey recently conducted by Statistics Canada for Human Resources Development Canada. This survey, called the "Workplace and Employee Survey" (WES) and developed jointly by the two agencies represents the first attempt in Canada at conducting a large-scale linked employer-employee survey. The survey consists of two components: (1) an establishment survey on the adoption of technologies, organizational change, training and other human resource practices, business strategies, and labour turnover in the establishment; and (2) a survey of workers within these same establishments to obtain data on their wages, hours of work, job type, human capital, other characteristics, use of technologies, and training taken. This data source provides, for the first time in Canada, detailed linked micro-data on establishments and their workers.
