  • Public use microdata: 42-25-0001
    Description:

    Statistics Canada is gathering information from families who use child care as well as those who do not. The survey, which addresses child care in Canada for children younger than 6 years old, asks about the different types of early learning and child care arrangements that families use, difficulties some families may face when looking for care, as well as reasons for not using child care. The survey will also cover the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on child care.

    Description:

    To date, there exists little national information on the provision of child care services in Canada, despite investments in the creation of a national child care program. Statistics Canada, in collaboration with ESDC developed the Canadian Survey on the Provision of Child Care Services (CSPCCS) to identify the feasibility of a survey frame to survey child care providers, and to enable the reporting of descriptive information about those providers. This article describes the CSPCCS and its objectives.

    Description:

    Various studies have shown that children from socioeconomically disadvantaged families are more likely to have poorer outcomes than children from more advantaged families and that such gaps could be reduced by participating in early learning and child care (ELCC). Using the 2019 Survey on Early Learning and Child Care Arrangements, a nationally representative survey that provides the most updated and detailed information on child care for children aged 0 to 5 years, this study examines the patterns of ELCC participation among families with potential socioeconomic disadvantages in Canada.

    Description:

    Over the past several decades, there has been a growing demand for non-parental child care services, in part due to a rise in dual earner families and single parent households who may require care while working or studying. Previous work has described the use of child care for pre-school aged children in Canada and other high-income countries. However, much less information is available to describe the use of child care for school-aged children. Thus, the purpose of the current study is to describe the use of non-parental child care for kindergarten and elementary school children (age 4 to 11), including type of care and number of hours in care, as well as to identify predictors and correlates of child care use for this demographic.

    Description:

    Educators who are part of Indigenous children’s own communities can play an important role in providing them with early learning experiences that reflect their cultural heritage and traditions. This study examines the sociodemographic and employment characteristics of early learning and child care (ELCC) workers who are First Nations people, Métis or Inuit. Using 2016 long-form Census data, two occupational groups were studied – early childhood educators and assistants (ECEA) and child care providers (CCP). Comparisons were also made with non-Indigenous ELCC workers in the same occupational groups.

    Description:

    Canadian governments, at federal and provincial levels, have shown increasing attention to the importance of child care, in particular as a means to increase parents' labour force participation and enhance children's development. The Survey on Early Learning and Child Care Arrangements (SELCCA) provides a current snapshot of early child care use in Canada, and can be used to better understand the reasons why families choose to use or not use different types of child care arrangements. This presentation explores findings from the 2020 SELCCA in order to demonstrate use of child care, types of arrangements used by parents, reasons for using and not using care, and difficulties finding child care. Results will also be compared to the 2019 SELCCA to explore changes that have occurred during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Public use microdata: 62M0004X
    Description:

    The Public-Use Microdata File (PUMF) for the Survey of Household Spending (SHS) provides information on household expenditures as well as selected information on dwelling characteristics and household equipment. The production of this file includes many safeguards to prevent the identification of any one person or household.

    PUMFs were produced on an annual basis for SHS 1997 to 2009, before a redesigned survey was introduced with the 2010 reference year. The SHS 2017 PUMF is the first SHS PUMF based on data collected after the 2010 survey redesign.

    Due to changes to data collection, processing and estimation methods introduced with the 2010 redesign, users are advised not to compare data from SHS 1997 to 2009 with data from any subsequent years, unless otherwise noted.

    Description:

    The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically altered the way of life for Canadian families, parents, and children. Physical distancing and the impact on employment has meant that parents have altered their usual routines and supports, and many children and families have been isolated in their homes for months. The purpose of this report is to provide a snapshot of the child care experiences of parents and families with children less than 15 years of age both during and after child care closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Description:

    This study contributes to the debate about the role of self-employment in helping women improve family–work balance by offering Canadian evidence from a uniquely rich dataset that links individual records from the 2006 Census of Population to records from the 2011 National Household Survey. Unlike most previous studies estimating the determinants of women’s self-employment, the analysis focuses directly on transitions from wage employment to self-employment among new mothers.
