The decline in time spent with family during the typical workday

In the last two decades, the idea that a healthy balance between work and family life is a legitimate as well as desirable goal has become an important value for most workers. But despite changes in the workplace and the introduction of policies favouring work-family balance, many workers feel that they devote less and less time to their loved ones, mainly because they are devoting more and more time to their paid work. This article charts the evolution of average time spent with family during a workday from 1986 to 2005, with special focus on the factors that may help to explain these changes.

Do children adopt their parents’ religion?

While most parents hope that their children will carry on the religious traditions of their family, recent history has shown that younger generations of Canadians are less likely to have a religious affiliation. The increased cultural diversity and diversity of family relationships may have an impact on the transmission of parental religious affiliation to their children. Of particular interest in this article is the transmission of no religious affiliation on the future secularization of Canadian society.
