    Description:

    In recent years, adult literacy has come to be seen as crucial to the economic performance of industrialized nations. Literacy is no longer defined merely in terms of a basic threshold of reading ability, mastered by almost all those growing up in developed countries. Rather, literacy is now seen as how adults use written information to function in society. Today, adults need a higher level of literacy to function well: society has become more complex and low-skill jobs are disappearing. Therefore, inadequate levels of literacy among a broad section of the population potentially threaten the strength of economies and the social cohesion of nations.

    A large sample of adults (ranging from 1,500 to 8,000 per country) in Europe (Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland) and North America (Canada, United States) were given the same wide-ranging test of their literacy skills during the autumn of 1994. This report presents the results. The data paint the most detailed portrait ever available on the condition of adult literacy and its relationship with a host of background and demographic characteristics of European and North American adults.

    Description:

    This study examines the factors influencing a firm's decision to train, using data taken from several recent Statistic Canada surveys that explore advanced technology use by Canadian manufacturing plants. Advanced technology adoption has been both rapid and pervasive, leading to concerns about whether technology use is associated with an increase or a decrease in workers' skills. Based on the data collected through two surveys, this paper examines the relationship between technology use and the skill level of workers. It does so by first reporting on the opinions of managers of Canadian manufacturing establishments, who indicate that technology use leads to skill increases. Second, this paper examines the relationship between a plant's decision to train and certain other characteristics of the plant, including its technology use. Third, it investigates the factors related to the location of training in order to determine whether the training done by plants imparts primarily generic skills or plant-specific skills. Finally, it reports on survey results that show plants that introduced new technologies had to increase their expenditures for training.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 81F0005G
    Description:

    The University Student Information System (USIS) is a national database containing pertinent, up-to-date information on student participation in Canadian degree-granting institutions. USIS contains a large amount of information, only a portion of which is made available to the public in a published format. The aim of this guide is to make the entire USIS database more accessible to potential users. Enrolment data is available from the 1972-73 academic year to the present. Degree data is available from 1970 to the present.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M1995074
    Description:

    This study examines the characteristics of small and medium-sized firms that perform training. It uses data taken from a recent Statistics Canada survey that permit firms' training decisions to be analyzed within the broader context of their many activities and strategies.

    The study finds strong evidence for the hypothesis that human capital development facilitated by training is complementary to innovation and technological change. Training incidence is found to be closely related to the importance that a firm gives to research and development, the use of new technologies, and numerous other strategies that are related to innovation. Training is also greater where a firm emphasizes quality and a comprehensive human-resource strategy. The results point to the inherent complementarity of technology and human resources policy.
