  • Articles and reports: 75-006-X201700114798
    Description:

    This study uses a new longitudinal dataset that combines information from the Postsecondary Information System (PSIS) with personal income tax data to examine the labour market outcomes of graduates from universities in the Maritime provinces (Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick). In this pilot study, the outcomes of six cohorts of young people who graduated from a university in the Maritime provinces between 2006 and 2011 are examined, including 37,425 undergraduate degree holders (those with a bachelor’s degree) and 6,740 graduate degree holders (those with a master’s degree or a doctorate).

  • Articles and reports: 75-006-X201600114643
    Description:

    This article provides information on women aged 25 to 64 in natural and applied science occupations in Canada (i.e. scientific occupations), using data from the 1991 and 2001 censuses and the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS). The employment conditions of men and women in these occupations are also examined, based on data from the Labour Force Survey (LFS).

  • Articles and reports: 81-004-X201100111432
    Description:

    The value of education and the benefits that flow from it are substantial for many Canadian families. Previous research has found that Canadian parents are strongly committed to their children's postsecondary education. However, many parents of children under the age of 18 are confronted with a number of competing savings priorities. Based on data from the 2009 Canadian Financial Capability Survey (CFCS), this article examines who saves for postsecondary education and how they do so.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X20051128981
    Description:

    The article examines changes between 1981 and 2001 in the characteristics of lone parents. It looks at their earnings and the proportion in low income by age and education, and compares them with parents living as a couple. Changes in low-income rates for full-time, full-year workers are also examined.

    Description:

    This paper describes the incidence of training activity and the duration of training episodes during the 1990s among adult Canadians who were not full- or part-time students.

    Description:

    Labour Force Survey data reveal that dropout rates decreased throughout the 1990s in Canada. In 1999, the dropout rate stood at 15.1 per cent for 18- to 19 year-olds and 11.9 per cent for 20- to 24 year-olds.

    Description:

    A longitudinal study on a cohort of pupils in the secondary school has been conducted in an Italian region since 1986 in order to study the transition from school to working life. The information have been collected at every sweep by a mail questionnaire and, at the final sweep, by a face-to-face interview, where retrospective questions referring back to the whole observation period have been asked. The gross flows between different discrete states - still in the school system, in the labour force without a job, in the labour force with a job - may then be estimated both from prospective and retrospective data, and the recall effect may be evaluated. Moreover, the conditions observed by the two different techniques may be regarded as two indicators of the 'true' unobservable condition, thus leading to the specification and estimation of a latent class model. In this framework, a Markov chain hypothesis may be introduced and evaluated in order to estimate the transition probabilities between the states, once they are corrected or the classification errors. Since the information collected by mail show a given amount of missing data in terms of unit nonresponse, the 'missing' category is also introduced in the model specification.

    Description:

    Previous studies of the job skills gap have focused on the problem of workers with literacy deficits. Yet, in terms of the costs to individuals, firms and the national economy, literacy surplus (or underemployment) is equally important. This article examines the "fit" or "mismatch" between job requirements and workers' literacy skills, profiling patterns of literacy use and under-use in the labour market.

    Description:

    Would redistributing work hours solve the unemployment problem? This study converts regular paid overtime hours into hypothetical full-time jobs, then distributes them by province, occupation and level of education. It attempts to match these full-time jobs with the unemployed by province and occupation.

    Description:

    For many years, education has been the focus of considerable attention in Canada. This attention does not originate only from the usual stakeholders, such as governments, school boards, and teachers' unions. It comes also from the general population and from interest groups such as the business community and labour market analysts.

    Description:

    Unpredictability" and "transformation" are words often used to describe the contemporary labour market. Debate continues about the implications of the disruption of stable career and work patterns which were assumed to have been the norm in the Canadian workplace. Teaching, because it is the largest profession in Canada, is a useful venue for examining these labour market dynamics, especially transitions into and out of the profession. These entry and exit transitions, which are the central theme of this paper, are also of interest in a profession like teaching where university graduates have traditionally enjoyed a tight link to an established labour market.
