  • Articles and reports: 75-006-X201400114042
    Description:

    This article provides information about Canadians who need assistance at home or home-care services, but who do not receive any (unmet needs) and about those who already receive assistance or home-care services, but could use more services (partly met needs). The article also examines the possible consequences of the lack of assistance or of home care on the well-being and mental health of Canadians.

  • Articles and reports: 75-006-X201400114011
    Description:

    This study uses data from the 2011 National Household Survey to examine the migration patterns of ‘infrastructure tradespersons’ over the period 2006 to 2011. In this study, infrastructure tradespersons are defined as Canadian residents aged 25 to 44 with a certification in trades and whose major field of study was in construction trades, mechanics and repair, precision production, or heavy equipment machinery/crane operation.

    Description:

    Many individuals are not married or in a common-law relationship, but are in a stable relationship without living under the same roof. These couples are 'living apart together.' How many individuals are in this situation in Canada? Is this type of relationship increasing? Are these relationships motivated by lifestyle choices?

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201200311700

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X201000211166
    Description:

    This study examines the growing number of non-permanent residents who work temporarily in Canada. They are compared with permanent residents in terms of demographic characteristics, location, occupations and earnings. Census data show that while the numbers destined to skilled work has been increasing, most non-permanent residents are found in relatively unskilled occupations. Reflecting the occupations in which they work, foreign nationals working temporarily in Canada tend to be paid less than are comparable Canadian born and established immigrant workers

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X201000211159
    Description:

    This article looks at movements of persons aged 25 to 44 years between central municipalities and suburban municipalities in the country's three largest metropolitan areas - Toronto, Montréal and Vancouver. More specifically, the article presents socio-economic characteristics of persons most and least likely to leave the central municipality for a neighbouring municipality.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X200900210918
    Description:

    This study examines the increasing prevalence of the proportion of mothers aged 40 to 44 with a pre-school aged child (0 to 4 years of age) over the past 20 years. It also presents a socio-economic profile of these mothers, in particular their education levels, occupations and place of birth.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X200800110517
    Description:

    Canada is also a player on the world stage as a source country of migrants. Whether Canadian migration abroad is temporary or permanent, long term or short term, far or near, Canadians are making their mark in other countries. This article, although not a complete accounting of Canadians living abroad, shows that Canadian out-migration is just as selective as in-migration.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X200800110459
    Description:

    In this article, we explore four possible approaches to the problem of differentiating between suburban neighbourhoods and central neighbourhoods in census metropolitan areas. The advantages and limits of the four approaches are discussed in detail. In the second part, we show, using census data and selected classification tools, how the various types of neighbourhoods differ in terms of population characteristics.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X20060059528
    Description:

    This article presents information about access to transportation by different age groups; then, it discusses the impact of having either more or less access to transportation on seniors' activities and quality of life. Finally, the article examines the characteristics of those seniors who are most likely to have limited access to transportation, and are thus most likely to face restrictions in their everyday activities.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X20050017941
    Description:

    We live in an aging society. And much has been written about how care will be provided to an aging population. We can't stop aging, and our capacity to affect our health as we age is limited, but the size, quality and proximity of people's social networks are arguably among the things that determine whether seniors receive formal care delivered by professionals, rely on informal care provided by family and friends or, indeed, receive no care at all.

    In this article, we look at the relationship between the social networks of non-institutionalized seniors and whether they receive formal, informal or no care.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X19970023615
    Description:

    This paper demonstrates the utility of a multi-stage survey design that obtains a total count of health facilities and of the potential client population in an area. The design has been used for a state-level survey conducted in mid-1995 in Uttar Pradesh, India. The design involves a multi-stage, areal cluster sample, wherein the primary sampling unit is either an urban block or rural village. All health service delivery points, either self-standing facilities or distribution agents, in or formally assigned to the primary sampling unit are mapped, listed, and selected. A systematic sample of households is selected, and all resident females meeting predetermined eligibility criteria are interviewed. Sample weights for facilities and individuals are applied. For facilities, the weights are adjusted for survey response levels. The survey estimate of the total number of government facilities compares well against the total published counts. Similarly the female client population estimated in the survey compares well with the total enumerated in the 1991 census.
