People who move from one province to another stand a good chance of earning more money, depending on their age and where they move from, according to a new research paper.


Telecommunications statistics, 1999

Full-time employment in the telecommunications industry continued its downward trend in 1999, slipping 3.0% from 1998 levels to 80,749 persons. In contrast, part-time employment increased 2.9%. Overall, there were 2.3% fewer people working in the industry. However, the decrease in employment did not lead to lower labour expenses, as salaries, wages and benefits increased 8.9%.


Workplace and Employee Survey: Job vacancies, 1999

Virtually one-half of all the long-term job vacancies in profit-oriented firms during 1999 were in the retail trade and consumer services industries, according to a new report based on data from the 1999 Workplace and Employee Survey (WES).


Self-Sufficiency Project, 1998 (preliminary)

Data from a third follow-up survey to the Self-Sufficiency Project are now available. The Self-Sufficiency Project was designed to determine the effectiveness of an earnings supplement to single-parents who found full-time jobs and agreed to leave the Income Assistance Program.


Family income, 1999

For the second consecutive year, average family income reached a new high in 1999, as the income of Canadians continued to rebound from the recession of the early 1990s. Average after-tax family income reached an estimated $51,473, up 1.9% from 1998.

The 2001 edition of the Market research handbook is now available. Since 1975, the Handbook has been an authoritative source of socio-economic information reflecting key characteristics of local and national markets.

Among the age group 18 to 24, women accounted for 57.1% of all full-time undergraduate university students in 1999/2000, up from 54.2% in 1992/93, the peak year for enrolment.
