Family wealth across the generations
Raj K. Chawla and Henry Pold

In the absence of longitudinal data, changes in family wealth can be estimated using cohorts of similar families from two points in time. This method shows that between 1984 and 1999 mean family wealth rose for families with a major income recipient under 45 in 1984 and dropped for those with one aged 45 to 54.

Precarious jobs: A new typology of employment
L.Vosko, N. Zukewich and C. Cranford

Many Canadians are in employment situations that differ from the traditional model of a stable, full-time job: one in which a person works for only one employer, is employed full year, full time on the employers premises, has extensive benefits and entitlements, and expects to be employed indefinitely. Work that differs from the standard is described in several different ways, non-standard and contingent being two commonly used terms. In recent years, precarious employment has come into use.
