  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X20010126036
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The issue of male-female wage inequality is complex, and requires analysis from a number of different perspectives. This article demonstrates the importance of measurement, decomposition techniques and differences in the gap along the wage scale.

  • Journals and periodicals: 89F0125X
    Description:

    These highlights provide a brief summary of the report 'Literacy, numeracy and labour market outcomes in Canada', (catalogue no. 89-552-MPE00008 and 89-552-MIE00008) which investigates the relationship between labour market success and literacy skills.

  • Articles and reports: 89-552-M2001008
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This study investigates the relationship between labour market success and literacy skills, specifically prose literacy, document literacy and quantitative literacy or numeracy. It focuses on the relationship between literacy and annual, weekly and hourly earnings.

  • Articles and reports: 87-004-X20000035565
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Over the last few years, we have learned a great deal about the culture labour force. We know that culture workers have, on average, higher levels of education, higher rates of self-employment, lower rates of unemployment, lower wages, a greater likelihood of working part-time, and a tendency to be concentrated in certain regions of the country.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0019M2001157
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This article uses data from the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID) to investigate the extent to which factors not previously explored in the Canadian context account for wage differences between men and women. Like other studies using standard decomposition techniques and controlling for a variety of productivity-related characteristics, the results demonstrate that men still enjoy a wage advantage over women: women's average hourly wage rate is about 84% - 89% of the men's average. Unlike other studies, controls for work experience and job-related responsibilities are used. Gender differences in full-year, full-time work experience explain at most, 12% of the gender wage gap. Gender differences in the opportunity to supervise and to perform certain tasks account for about 5% of the gender wage gap. Yet despite the long list of productivity related factors, a substantial portion of the gender wage gap cannot be explained.

    Many studies rely on measures such as age or potential experience (= age minus number of years of schooling minus six) as a proxy for actual labour market. Neither of these measures account for complete withdrawals from the labour market nor for restrictions on the number of hours worked per week or on the number of weeks worked per year due to family-related responsibilities. The results show that proxies for experience yield larger adjusted gender wage gaps than when actual experience is used.
