  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M1994068
    Description:

    This study attempts to compare the earnings of men and women on an equal footing by concentrating on recent postsecondary graduates and using survey data on a number of earnings-related characteristics. The data cover three graduating classes of university and community college students: 1982, 1986 and 1990. These data indicate that the gender earnings gap among graduates has narrowed in recent years. In fact among the most recent class, we found that female university graduates are rewarded slightly better than their male counterparts after controlling for experience, job tenure, education and hours of work. A small gender gap persists among community college graduates: about three-and-a-half percent on an hourly wage basis. For all graduates, the earnings gap tended to increase with age, even after controlling for previous work experience.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M1994069
    Description:

    Employment equity legislation is becoming more prevalent in Canadian labour markets, yet -- other than broad availability numbers -- the labour market experiencesof designated groups have not been well documented. Using the National Graduates Survey of 1992, this report profiles the early labour market experiences ofvisible minorities, Aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities who graduated from Canadian universities and community colleges in 1990. In general, we find thatthe earnings of designated group members are very similar to the earnings of their classmates. However, we also find that members of these groups are more likely tobe unemployed and are less likely to participate in the labour force than others in their class.

    Description:

    This publication is a record of the International Conference on the Measurement and Valuation of Unpaid Work hosted by Statistics Canada and co-sponsored by Status of Women Canada. The main purpose of the conference was to provide Statistics Canada with the experiences and insights of experts from Canada and from around the world, with a view to accelerating its developments in this field. It achieved this goal by providing a forum for the exchange of information on the benefits and problems associated with generating estimates of unpaid work and its value. Participants discussed the potential for developing a new system of accounts parallel to the existing System of National Accounts. They also debated the content of the 1996 Census of Population. Its comprehensive nature was intended to make initial input to the development of international standards or guidelines on the statistical accounting of unpaid work. Perhaps of equal importance for the global development of statistics on unpaid work, the conference was the starting point for the development of an informal international network of practitioners in the field.
