On Wednesday, June 26, 2013, Statistics Canada will release the second set of data from the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS). The release focuses on education, labour, place of work and language of work. It also features two analytical reports.

The first report will provide a descriptive profile of education in Canada including level of educational attainment, field of study and location of study. The report will examine post-secondary educational achievement across a spectrum of variables such as gender, age and geography.

The second report will provide a descriptive portrait of the Canadian labour force. It will feature an industry profile, the most common occupations for men and women, as well as an overview of employment by level of educational attainment. The report will briefly touch on workers aged 55 and over and interprovincial mobility.

Three companion reports will also be available. They will analyze the educational attainment of Aboriginal peoples, commuting to work and language used in the workplace.

Various products and services will be found on the 2011 National Household Survey website. For example, data on education, labour, place of work, commuting to work, language of work as well as mobility and migration will be available for standard geographic areas, through the NHS Data Tables and NHS Profile.

Specific information on the quality of NHS data on education, labour, place of work, commuting to work, language of work and mobility and migration as well as explanations of concepts, classifications, questions and comparability with other data sources will be found in the series of reference guides for the topics being released.

Other reference materials will include the National Household Survey Dictionary which provides definitions of NHS concepts, universes and variables. As well, users can refer to the National Household Survey User Guide (released on May 8, 2013) which provides general information on the 2011 NHS.

All reports and the various products pertaining to the release will be available on our website at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time on June 26.
