Oral health care in Canada

Concluding a three-year evaluation, the report of the multi-disciplinary panel on oral health established by the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences is now available. In addition to a literature reviews, the report presents an innovative analysis of data from the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS), which for the first time in approximately 40 years has provided nationally representative, clinical information on the oral health status of Canadians. In summary, the panel finds that there are major income-related inequalities in oral health and access to oral health care across social groups in Canada and that those with the highest levels of problems are also those with the greatest difficulty accessing care. You can read the executive summary and the recommendations of the panel by clicking this link.

Two new papers on the impact of immigration

The Canadian Labour Market and Skills Researcher Network (CLSRN) recently released two working papers based on confidential microdata from various surveys available in the RDCs. Haimin Zhang (BCI RDC) analyses the relationship between immigration and crime rates in Canada in “Immigration and Crime: Evidence from Canada”, while Yigit Aydede (Atlantic RDC) investigates how location choices of native-born workers can be influenced by the conditions in both the potential destinations and the departure regions in “Immigration and Location Choices of Native-Born Workers in Canada”.

Job polarization in Canada

A new working paper by CLSRN affiliates David Green and Benjamin Sand entitled “Has the Canadian Labour Market Polarized?” (CLSRN Working Paper no. 133) has just been released. Using the Canadian Census Master Files (1971, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, and 2006) and the Labour Force Survey, the authors analyse movements in wage inequality, and employment and wage polarization across occupations for the last four decades. They find that Canada has experienced faster growth in employment in both high and low paying occupations relative to those in the middle since 1981 but, in contrast to what occurred in the U.S. in the 1990s, wage rates did not exhibit polarization.
