Survey of Financial Security, 1999

Data are now available from the 1999 Survey of Financial Security, which provides the most comprehensive statistical portrait yet of Canadians' net worth. This survey, which covered about 16,000 responding households, collected information on the assets and debts of families and unattached individuals from May to July 1999. It obtained data on the value of all major financial and non-financial assets, and on the money owing on mortgages, vehicles, credit cards, student loans and other debts.


Labour force historical review, 1976 to 2000

The Labour force historical review on CD-ROM is a comprehensive database of Labour Force Survey estimates, containing thousands of cross-classified data series and spanning more than two decades from 1976 to 2000. Monthly and annual average series are available on a wide range of subjects, including labour force status by demographic, education and family characteristics, trends in the labour markets of metropolitan areas, economic regions, industry and occupation estimates and much more.


Work absence rates, 2000

Data are now available for 2000 on absences from work for personal reasons (illness or disability) and personal or family responsibilities.


Income trends in Canada, 1980 to 1998

Income trends in Canada on CD-ROM provides accurate and reliable statistics about income from employment and other sources, taxes, the impact of government transfers on family income, differences in earnings between women and men, seniors' incomes, income inequality, the depth of low income, and more.


Workplace and Employee Survey, 1999

Nearly one-quarter of all workplaces, accounting for more than one-third of paid employees, made a significant investment in new computer technology in 1999, according to data from a new survey. These major investments in computer technology were not associated with either higher employee layoff rates or slower employment growth, at least in the short run, but rather with a burst of computer-related training.


Labour market outcomes of arts and culture graduates, 1995

This study, in the current issue of Focus on culture, examines problems faced by the culture sector in replenishing a skilled, but aging, workforce.


Literacy, numeracy and labour market outcomes in Canada, 1994

This study used Canadian data from the International Adult Literacy Survey to investigate the relationship between labour market success and literacy skills. It focuses on the relationship between literacy and annual, weekly and hourly earnings. It also takes into account other factors that influence labour market outcomes, such as educational attainment, sex and work experience.


Economic well-being of rural Canadians, 1970 to 1997

The analysis bulletin Measuring economic well-being of rural Canadians using income indicators is the thirteenth in a series examining trends in rural Canada. This publication compares trends in income for rural families with trends among urban families. It is published in collaboration with the Rural Secretariat of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.


Population projections, 2000 to 2026

Canada's population will continue growing in the next quarter century, but it will age considerably and the proportion of young people will shrink significantly, according to new population projections. These projections use preliminary population estimates for 2000, which were derived from the 1996 Census of Population, adjusted for net undercoverage.


Manufacturing industries of Canada, 1998

The value of manufacturing shipments increased in 1998, for the seventh consecutive year. Shipments were up 3.4%, reaching a total of $441.1 billion. According to the Monthly Survey of Manufacturing, the pace of growth continued in 1999 and 2000, with shipments rising 9.3 % and 9.2%, respectively.


Transition from SIC to NAICS - manufacturing industries, 1992 to 1998

Data collected from the Monthly Survey of Manufacturing are now classified according to the 1997 North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). This classification system replaces the 1980 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC); reference year 2000 is the last survey year for which data are released on a SIC basis.


Geography working paper series

The Geography working paper series was begun to stimulate discussion on conceptual, methodological or technical issues involved in developing and disseminating geographic data, products and services. Readers of the series are encouraged to contact Statistics Canada with comments and suggestions.


E-commerce, 1999

Transactions on the Internet made by private households from home accounted for less than one-tenth of 1% of personal expenditure on products and services in 1999, according to the first-ever snapshot of household e-commerce activity conducted by the Household Internet Use Survey.


2001 Canada Year Book

The 2001 edition of the Canada year book is now available. Enjoyable and easy to read, the year book draws on various Statistics Canada surveys to describe leading Canadian social, economic and environmental trends.
