    Description:

    As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canadian and American parents of young children have faced unique stressors, such as additional homeschooling and caregiving responsibilities, and families in both countries have experienced pandemic-related deteriorations to mental health (Gadermann et al., 2021). This paper examines the parenting concerns of parents of young children in the U.S. and Canada during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic based on data from Statistics Canada’s Parenting during the Pandemic crowdsource survey and the University of Oregon’s Rapid Assessment of Pandemic Impact on Development – Early Childhood (RAPID-EC) survey, and explores contextual factors that might explain the similarities and differences between Canadian and American parents’ pandemic experiences.

It also examines how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the employment of workers in this sector, compared to workers in all other occupations.

    This infographic presents differences in the caregiving arrangements of Canadians, as captured in Wave 4 (2018) of the Longitudinal and International Study of Adults. Among individuals who acted as caregivers between January 2016 and December 2017, some had provided care each month over the two-year period, while others had provided care for a continuous but shorter period of time, or on and off over the period considered. Moreover, individuals in different arrangements varied in their characteristics and in the intensity of the care they had provided.

    Description:

    The 2018 General Social Survey on Caregiving and Care Receiving collects information on Canadians who provide care to family and friends with a long-term health condition, disability or problems related to aging. The survey also covers individuals who receive this care and about the challenges both groups face.

    Taking on the responsibility of an informal caregiver often means balancing other competing demands of life, such as working at a paid job, raising children and maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships. This infographic explores how the number of hours per week spent on caregiving activities effects the overall well-being of informal caregivers and their participation in daily and social activities.
