Perspectives on Labour and Income

News from The Daily

Total income of farm operators
Average total income of farm operators advanced in 2002, but at a slower pace than in the two previous years.

Labour Force Survey
Employment edged up by an estimated 25,000 in June, the third consecutive monthly increase. The unemployment rate rose slightly in June, up 0.1 percentage points to 7.3%, the result of an increase in the number of people in search of work.

Total income of farm families
For the second consecutive year, the average total income of farm families recorded its largest gain in 10 years in 2001.

Social engagement
The higher an individual's level of education and household income, the more likely he or she is to get involved in an organization or participate in political activities.

Employment Insurance
The estimated number of Canadians receiving regular Employment Insurance benefits in April 2004 was 552,970, almost unchanged from March (+0.4%). This follows a period of steady decline since August 2003.

Employer pension plans (trusteed pension funds)
Trusteed pension funds closed out the fourth quarter of 2003 with assets valued at a record high $624.2 billion.

Payroll employment, earnings and hours
Accommodation and food, other services (excluding public administration), logging and forestry, and health and social services continued to lead other industries with the strongest year-over-year growth of average weekly earnings.

Employment Insurance Coverage
The proportion of unemployed Canadians potentially eligible for Employment Insurance benefits remained virtually unchanged in 2003.
