First Nations Women and Postsecondary Education in Canada: Snapshots from the Census - ARCHIVED

Articles and reports: 81-004-X200900411017


The article presents data based on the 2001 and 2006 censuses regarding the postsecondary educational attainment of First Nations women aged 25 to 64, including comparisons between First Nations women and men, as well as between First Nations women and women in the total Canadian population. Variations in First Nations women's postsecondary educational attainment are explored across a number of socio-demographic characteristics such as age, geography, and area of residence (on- versus off-reserve; urban versus rural areas). Also examined are the fields of study most common for First Nations women, and the relationship between postsecondary education and employment.
