  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200410913127
    Geography: Canada, Province or territory
    Description:

    The article, published in Perspectives on Labour and Income, highlights aspects of wealth distribution that are relatively consistent across the country and others that are more specific to certain provinces and families.

    Wealth inequality relates to different income patterns across the country, but it also reflects patterns in the components of wealth, such as high residential property values in British Columbia and high levels of farm assets on the Prairies. This article uses data from the Survey of Financial Security.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X20040037735
    Geography: Province or territory
    Description:

    This article examines the variation between Canada's provinces in the literacy skills of 15-year-old students using data from the 2000 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). It also looks at family background and school factors as potential explanations for these differences. The article has been adapted from Variation in literacy skills among Canadian provinces: Findings from the OECD PISA, Education, Skills and Learning Research Papers, no. 12 (Statistics Canada Catalogue no. 81-595-MIE2004012).

  • Articles and reports: 11F0027M2004024
    Geography: Province or territory
    Description:

    This paper compares gross domestic product (GDP) per capita across Canadian provinces for the period 1990 to 2003. It starts by examining relative GDP per capita measured in current dollars across provinces and over time. In the second section, growth in nominal dollar GDP is broken down into a price and a volume component to determine whether growth over the period came from a higher volume of real output or higher prices received for the products being produced. In the third section, the relationship between increases in the volume component (real GDP per capita) and changes in productivity or in labour market conditions (hours worked per employee and the proportion of the working age population employed) is explored.

    Description:

    This Juristat provides an overview of young offenders in correctional service programs in Canada in 2002/03. The data in the report represent the final year of youth corrections under the Young Offenders Act as the new Youth Criminal Justice Act came into effect on April 1, 2003.

    The data are drawn from three sources: the Youth Key Indicator Report, the Youth Custody and Community Services Survey and the Alternative Measures Survey. Data from all these sources are analysed at the provincial/territorial and national levels.

  • Articles and reports: 11-522-X20020016740
    Geography: Province or territory
    Description:

    Controlling for differences in student populations, we examine the contribution of schools to provincial differences in the reading, math and science achievement of 15-year-olds in this paper. Using a semi-parametric decomposition technique developed by DiNardo, Fortin and Lemieux (1996) for differences in distributions, we find that school differences contribute to provincial differences in different parts of the achievement distribution and that the effect varies by province and by type of skill, even within province. For example, school differences account for about 32% of the difference in mean reading achievement between New Brunswick and Alberta, but reduce the difference in the proportion of students performing at the lowest reading proficiency level. By contrast, school differences account for 94% of the New Brunswick-Alberta gap in the 10th percentile of the science distribution. Our results demonstrate that school effectiveness studies that focus on the first moment of the achievement distribution miss potentially important impacts for specific students.
