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.
