    Description:

    In 2009, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) asked the principals of schools that were attended by 15-year-olds to indicate which aspects of their school context hindered instruction and/or student learning within their schools. This article not only identifies the types of hindrances affecting instruction and learning, but also the complexity of managing and maximizing the quality of the secondary school educational experience.

    Description:

    This article examines trends in registered apprenticeship training in Canada over the 1991 to 2009 period, using information from the Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS). Though data are available for all 22 major trade groups, this article focuses on the top four in terms of total number of apprentices in 2009: electricians, carpenters, automotive service technicians, and plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters. The analysis first looks at trends in the total number of apprenticeship registrations for each of these four major trade groups and then discusses trends in new registrations, completions and discontinuations.

    Description:

    Previous analysis based on data from the Youth in Transition Survey (YITS) has shown that reading proficiency, as measured in the Programme for the International Student Assessment (PISA) at age 15, is strongly associated with both high school graduation and postsecondary participation. This article uses the most recent data from YITS, collected when youth were age 25, to examine educational, labour market, income and family formation outcomes associated with reading proficiency levels on PISA at age 15. The intent of the analysis is to identify any life-path differences that were associated with reading proficiency levels at age 15. The analysis is descriptive and exploratory in nature. Further analysis is needed to identify causal relationships in the data.

    Description:

    In May 2006 Canadians participated in an activity that has been taking place in this country for over 300 years, a Census of Population. The census plays a critical role in the development of Canada's social, economic and demographic fabric. The education questions in the Census of Population have remained relatively stable for many years. However, major changes have been taking place in the structure of the education system in Canada, and in the educational participation and attainment levels of Canadians. Furthermore, education is playing an increasing role in determining individuals' labour market outcomes. This article reviews the changes to the education questions and their rationale.

  • Articles and reports: 81-004-X20050059111
    Description:

    This article presents an analysis of Census at School survey results that shows what students themselves had to say about their reading and associated daily habits. It was written by Statistics Canada analysts as an example to students of the type of detailed analysis that can be made using Canadian Census at School results. The article uses data that were collected from over 22,000 students across Canada during the 2004-2005 academic year. Census at School is an international classroom project that teaches students aged 8 to 18 about statistical enquiry and census-taking. Students anonymously fill in an online questionnaire about themselves - their height, time use, eating habits and much more - and then use their class results to learn statistical concepts, practice data analysis and explore social issues. Their responses also become part of national and international project databases that are used for teaching statistics.

    The Census at School statistical literacy project is not an official Statistics Canada survey conducted under the Statistics Act. Schools; students participate on a voluntary basis and the data collected are not representative of Canada's student population. This is clearly stated with the summary Canadian results that are made available on the project website for the benefit of participating students.
