Perspectives on Labour and Income

Low income in census metropolitan areas
Andrew Heisz and Logan McLeod

Business people, politicians and the general public alike share an interest in renewing community life in Canadas urban centres. Addressing poverty, enhancing the business climate, and providing learning and working opportunities are some of the issues. Understanding which groups are in low income and where they live is one important factor. Census data are used to describe the income of Canadians from an urban perspective between 1980 and 2000.

Income replacement among recent widows
Richard V. Burkhauser, Philip Giles, Dean R. Lillard, Johannes Schwarze

The death of a husband has far-reaching implications, not the least of which is how his earnings will be replaced. Government programs are in place to mitigate the effects of major earnings losses on households; private institutions also play an important role. The economic well-being of recent widows during the 1990s is compared in four OECD countries: Canada, the United States, Great Britain and Germany.
