    Description:

    This paper, which examines, pathways pursued by undergraduate degree students in Ontario, is the first of a series of articles that will be developed as a result of this research. Students who entered undergraduate programs, either bachelor's or first professional programs, in Ontario from 1980 to 1984 (entry cohort) were traced from entry until the 1992-93 academic year. As a result, students had eight or more years during which they might have completed the requirements of their programs, at either the university in which they first enrolled or another Ontario university. In particular, the age of entry, program choices, completion rate and duration of study for the entry cohort are examined in this paper. As this first paper is limited to one province, some students who did not graduate may have completed their program requirements elsewhere. Nonetheless, results presented provide useful information on students's study patterns that was previously unavailable.

  • Table: 68-513-X19970013571
    Description:

    "Intergenerational equity" is a term that can be interpreted in the sense of either: [1] equity between persons in the intergenerational transmission of economic status - often judged by the norm of "equality of opportunity"; or [2] equity in the intergenerational division of aggregate resources, considering all members of each generation as a group. Many of the papers in the companion volume (Corak, 1998) of intergenerational social mobility has long been a central issue in sociology and politics. This volume has focussed on the second interpretation, and espoused a "new" type of measurement of "Generational Accounting."
