The Longitudinal and International Study of Adults (LISA) 2014 now available

The master and administrative data files of the second wave of the Longitudinal and International Study of Adults are now available in the RDCs. In addition, two new files are also available : The ”IMDB file” which contains variables from the Longitudinal Immigration Database, including demographics, education at landing, the country of origin and intended destination within Canada, as well as the labour market intentions and skills, and the “Respondent history file” which can be used to determine the subsample of persons who responded to several successive waves of LISA. To know more consult the data section or contact your local RDC.

National Child Day

The pathways and conditions supporting the healthy development and well-being of children are issues that researchers are able to investigate thanks to the data available through the Network. To mark National Child Day, we wish to draw your attention to our most recent knowledge synthesis reviewing the evidence on the relationship between family income and children’s outcomes. The authors, Annie McEwen and Jennifer Stewart find that higher income improves a range of child outcomes but that, on the whole, the improvement is quite small. This suggests that addressing inequalities in childhood, which create unequal chances for success later in life, will require policy that tackles more than only income as a source of disadvantage.
