Statistics Canada's Centre for Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics has released new data tables on two gender-related topics. These statistics will be used by the Gender Results Framework, a whole-of-government tool designed to track gender equality in Canada.

Using data from the 2016 Census of Population, the Centre has produced three new tables.

Two of these tables address the topic of education and skills development. The first shows the proportion of postsecondary qualification holders who are women or men, including a breakdown by field of study and highest level of education. The second table presents high school completion rates by sex.

On the topic of poverty reduction, health and well-being, the Centre has produced a table showing the proportion of the population in core housing need by economic family type.

All of these tables include a breakdown by province and territory, age group, as well as other demographic characteristics.

These new data will soon be housed in the Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Statistics Hub.


The study "Results from the 2016 Census: Is field of study a factor in the payoff of a graduate degree?," part of Insights on Canadian Society (Catalogue number75-006-X), is available.

The article "Does education pay? A comparison of earnings by level of education in Canada and its provinces and territories," part of Census in Brief (Catalogue number98-200-X), is also available.

The article "Is field of study a factor in the earnings of young bachelor's degree holders?," part of Census in Brief (Catalogue number98-200-X), is also available.

The product "Core housing need, 2016 Census" is also available.
