Driven to excel: A portrait of Canada's workaholics, 1998

People who consider themselves workaholics are more likely than other Canadians to feel stressed or worried, and are less likely to feel happy or satisfied with their lives - even though they are just as likely to enjoy their jobs. This profile of people who described themselves as workaholics is based on time-use data from the 1998 General Social Survey (GSS).


Farm cash receipts, 2001
