Tables from National Graduates Survey, 2013 (Class of 2009-2010)

This survey was designed to determine such factors as: the extent to which graduates of postsecondary programs had been successful in obtaining employment since graduation; the relationship between the graduates' programs of study and the employment subsequently obtained; the graduates' job and career satisfaction; the rates of under-employment and unemployment; the type of employment obtained related to career expectations and qualification requirements; and the influence of postsecondary education on occupational achievement.

Description:

LFS data are used to produce the well-known unemployment rate as well as other standard labour market indicators such as the employment rate and the participation rate. The LFS also provides employment estimates by industry, occupation, public and private sector, hours worked and much more, all cross-classifiable by a variety of demographic characteristics. Estimates are produced for Canada, the provinces, the territories and a large number of sub-provincial regions. For employees, data on wage rates, union status, job permanency and establishment size are also produced.

These data are used by different levels of government for evaluation and planning of employment programs in Canada. Regional unemployment rates are used by Employment and Social Development Canada to determine eligibility, level and duration of insurance benefits for persons living within a particular employment insurance region. The data are also used by labour market analysts, economists, consultants, planners, forecasters and academics in both the private and public sector.

Description:

National Survey of Giving, Volunteering, and Participating (NSGVP) which was undertaken to better understand how Canadians support individuals and communities on their own or through their involvement with charitable and nonprofit organizations. The NSGVP was conducted as a supplement to the Labour Force Survey. For this survey, thousands of Canadians aged 15 and over were asked how they: gave money and other resources to individuals and to organizations; volunteered time to help others and to enhance their communities; and participated in the practices which help give substance to active citizenship. The results from this survey allow this report to tell a story about who Canada's volunteers, charitable donors and civic participators are and the ways in which they contribute to our society This survey collected information about: the activities of volunteers, who benefit from these activities and the settings in which the activity take place; the satisfaction people gain from volunteering; the amount and patterns of time that people spend volunteering through organizations; the training and supervision people receive during their volunteer experiences through organizations; the out-of-pocket expenses connected with voluntary activities through organizations. THERE ARE THREE DATA FILES FOR THE NSGVP. The main answer file, the volunteer event file and the giver event file. To link between files use the variable MICRO_ID. Main data file: This is the main answer file and contains one record per respondent. All questions except for those on the volunteer event files and giver event files are located here. In addition, summary derived variables have been created from the volunteer event and the giver event files and placed on the MAIN file. Use the MICRO_ID to link with other files. Volunteer data file: This is the volunteer organization answer file. It will contain 1-3 records per person who volunteered (1 per organization the respondent volunteered with). This file contains information on the type of organization for which the individual volunteered, and the number of hours volunteered for the organization. Giver data file: This is the charitable donation answer file. It will contain 1-55 records per person per solicitation method who made a charitable donation. Each record represents 1 donation made to a charitable organization. For each donation made, this file contains information on the type of organization to whom the donation was made as well as the value of the donation.

Description:

Note March 2006: Statistics Canada has reweighted the SLID from 1996 - 2002 using 2001 census population counts. These files are original files. Newer, reweighted files can be found by searching for "Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics, Reweighted" The cross-sectional public-use microdata file for the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID) is a collection of income, labour and family variables on persons in Canada and their families. The production of this file includes many safeguards to prevent the identification of any one person. Although often referred to as one file, the SLID public-use microdata file is three separate files: person, economic family and census family. The person file contains identifiers that allow a researcher to group persons into households, economic families and census families as well as to link each of these files. The following information about SLID is excerpted from Statistics Canada's Labour and Income Dynamics: Survey Overview The Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics adds a new dimension to existing survey data on labour market activity and income: the changes experienced by individuals through time. At the heart of the survey's objectives is to understand the economic well-being of Canadians: what economic shifts do individuals and families live through, and how does it vary with changes in their paid work, family make-up, receipt of government transfers, or other factors? The survey's longitudinal dimension makes it possible to see such concurrent and often related events. SLID will be the first household survey ever to provide national data on the fluctuations in income that a typical family or individual experiences through time, which will give greater insight on the nature and extent of poverty in Canada. Starting in 1993, SLID is following the same respondents for six years. A second "panel" will start in 1996, and so on every three years. The size of the first panel is 15,000 households, including about 31,000 adults.

Description:

The main purpose of this survey is to study the coverage of the employment insurance program. It provides a meaningful picture of who does or does not have access to EI benefits among the jobless and those in a situation of underemployment. The Employment Insurance Coverage Survey also covers access to maternity and parental benefits. The survey was designed to produce a series of precise measures to identify groups with low probability of receiving benefits, for instance, the long-term jobless, labour market entrants and students, people becoming unemployed after uninsured employment, people who have left jobs voluntarily and individuals who are eligible, given their employment history, but do not claim or otherwise receive benefits. The survey provides a detailed description of the characteristics of the last job held as well as reasons for not receiving benefits or for not claiming. Through the survey data, analysts will also be able to observe the characteristics and situation of people not covered by EI and of those who exhausted EI benefits, the job search intensity of the unemployed, expectation of recall to a job, and alternate sources of income and funds. Survey data pertaining to maternity and parental benefits answer questions on the proportion of mothers of an infant who received maternity and parental benefits, the reason why some mothers do not receive benefits and about sharing parental benefits with their spouse. The survey also allows looking at the timing and circumstances related to the return to work, the income adequacy of households with young children and more.

Description:

For the years 2005 and 2006 together a "clean" microdata file containing person level information was produced. The primary objective of the survey is to provide a continuous supply of smoking prevalence data against which changes in prevalence can be monitored. This objective differs from that of the National Population Health Survey (NPHS) which collects smoking data from a longitudinal sample to measure which individuals are changing their smoking behaviour, the possible factors which contribute to change, and the possible risk factors related to starting smoking and smoking duration. Because the NPHS collects data every two years and releases the data about a year after completing the collection cycle, it does not meet Health Canadau0092s need for continuous coverage in time, rapid delivery of data, or sufficient detail of the most at-risk populations, namely 15 to 24 year olds. The Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey allows Health Canada to look at smoking prevalence by province-sex-age group, for age groups 15 to 19, 20 to 24, 25 to 34, 35 to 44 and 45 and over, on a semi- annual and annual basis. Data will continue to be collected on an on-going basis depending on availability of funds.
