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.

New publication : Modelising Quebec’s health care spending

The Centre interuniversitaire sur le risque, les politiques économiques et l'emploi (CIRPÉE) in collaboration with CIRANO has recently released a new research report modelising public health care spending in Quebec until 2030. A plausible scenario indicates that these expenses will increase by almost $30 billion over this period, growing from 8,4 to 13,5 percent of GDP and from 42,9 to 68,9 percent of government total income.
