      Residential dissimilarity describes the extent to which one population group lives apart from another in a shared urban space. This study uses data from the 2016 Census to examine the housing, income and residential dissimilarity of the Indigenous population living in private households in the 49 census metropolitan areas (CMAs) and census agglomerations (CAs) that were large enough to be divided into census tracts, and provides a short description of neighbourhoods with a large concentration of Indigenous people.

      Description:

      Who are the parents whose adult children still live at home? Are they less likely to have higher incomes and more likely to be immigrants? And how do these parents view their coresidence experience? This study uses data from the 2001 General Social Survey to compare parents whose adult children are still at home with those whose adult children do not live with them anymore. It then examines whether or not coresidence is associated with significant negative outcomes, particularly in terms of conflicts within couples. It also contrasts parents whose adult children never left the house and those whose children returned to the nest after living independently for a time.

      Description:

      Age brings limitations that affect where, how and with whom people live. One of the concerns that seniors may face is affordable housing. This may be a particular concern for those seniors who lose a spouse and are faced with reduced household income while shelter costs remain unchanged. Using data from the 2001 Census of Population and the 2002 General Social Survey (GSS), this article looks at who seniors live with and the affordability of their homes.

      Description:

      We live in an aging society. And much has been written about how care will be provided to an aging population. We can't stop aging, and our capacity to affect our health as we age is limited, but the size, quality and proximity of people's social networks are arguably among the things that determine whether seniors receive formal care delivered by professionals, rely on informal care provided by family and friends or, indeed, receive no care at all.

      In this article, we look at the relationship between the social networks of non-institutionalized seniors and whether they receive formal, informal or no care.

      Description:

      This article identifies the determinants of healthy aging between 1994-1995 and 2002-2003 among middle-aged adults and seniors. A broad range of health and mortality determinants are evaluated: demographic and socio­-economic characteristics (age, sex, living arrangements, education, household income, rural/urban residence), health related behaviours (smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity in leisure time, weight), psycho-social factors (stress, sense of coherence, social support), chronic conditions and frequency of medical consultations.

      Description:

      Parental union dissolution has been on the rise in Canada for the last 30 years and the nature and intensity of the fact that children stay with their parents after the family has broken up is now an important issue. Until now, most research on this topic has been done using cross-sectional data. However, the arrangements that separating parents make concerning the physical and financial care of their children are far from static, evolving in response to a variety of changes in the lives of both biological parents, including those occurring as a result of the new conjugal unions mothers and fathers enter into.

      In this paper, we first determine how custody arrangements evolve through time and then examine changes in the frequency of contact that non-resident fathers maintain with their children. In both analyses, particular attention is given to the effect that a new union in the mother's or father's life has on the level of contact that children maintain with the non-custodial parent. We also examine how this varies depending on whether or not the new partner had children from a previous union, and on whether the mother's or father's new union is fertile. Prospective data from the two first waves of the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY) will enable us to compare levels of contact both before and after family recomposition.

      Analyses are conducted using multinomial logit and probit models, and ordered logit and probit models according to the nature of the dependent variables. The observation of some of our dependent variables (e.g., the levels of contact between non-residing fathers and their child) is dependent on a selection process (e.g., that a father not residing with his child at Time 1 does not reside with the child at Time 2). In such cases, analyses are conducted using ordered probit models with selectivity. In all analyses, standard errors are adjusted to account for the sample design.

      Description:

      In the face of increasing life expectancy, population aging and feminization of the older population, historic lack of interest in the latter stages of the life course has given way to a more intense focus on later life transitions such as widowhood and shifting living arrangements. In this paper we examine the reallocation of daily activities and change in attitudes of Canadians that occur with the passages associated with living longer.

      Description:

      This study provides a detailed analysis of findings based on the 1998 General Social Survey on Time Use, with some analysis of trends over time using the 1986 and 1992 time use surveys. It addresses the question of how life transitions affect time use patterns and quality of life indicators.

      Like other resources, time is finite. Unlike other resources, time is shared equally by everyone. The trade-offs people make between competing activities depend largely on the nature of their roles and obligations at each stage of life. These trade-offs say a great deal about a person's lifestyle, preferences and choices, or lack of choice. However, the life cycle has lost the uniformity and formality that it once had. Life-course patterns are now more diverse, and the transitions themselves are more likely to be experienced as extended and complex processes rather than as distinct events. Thus, it becomes important to study the impact of various life transitions on time use and quality of life.

      This study examines the following life transitions, with a focus on a comparison of the experiences of women and men:- transition from school to employment- transitions related to union formation and parenthood- transition to retirement- transitions associated with aging: widowhood and changes in living arrangements

      Geography: Canada
      Description:

      This paper presents an examination of the daily lives, lifestyles and quality of life of Canadians at all stages in the life course. The transitional events studied in this document include: leaving school and entering the workforce leaving the household of origin to establish one's own household becoming a spouse or life partner becoming a parent retirement transitions associated with old age, death of a spouse and changes in living arrangements

      We examine the way in which time is allocated across four aggregate activity categories (paid work and education, unpaid work, recreation and leisure, and personal care) and how time is distributed among the subcategories within each category. In order to better understand the personal, policy and practice relevance of life course transitions, we compare how respondents who have and have not experienced each transition event feel about their lives and about how they spend their time.

      Description:

      As the population ages, a greater demand for long-term care services and, in particular, nursing homes is expected. Policy analysts continue to search for alternative, less costly forms of care for the elderly and have attempted to develop programs to delay or prevent nursing-home entry. Health care administrators required information for planning the future demand for nursing-home services. This study assesses the relative importance of predisposing, enabling, and need characteristics in predicting and understanding nursing-home entry.
