Perspectives on Labour and Income


Education and income of lone parents
Diane Galarneau

The article examines changes between 1981 and 2001 in the characteristics of lone parents. It looks at their earnings and the proportion in low income by age and education, and compares them with parents living as a couple. Changes in low-income rates for full-time, full-year workers are also examined.



Shifts in spending patterns of older Canadians

Raj K. Chawla

As households age and labour market attachment diminishes, income, savings and wealth generally become less. Households also become smaller as adult children leave or a spouse dies. And spending patterns change. Using similar households, this study looks at changes in spending patterns for households headed by persons aged 55 or older in 1982 and 2003.
