Labour Market and Income



Much of the research undertaken with data available through the CRDCN is related to labour market and income issues. This section was developed to help find relevant news, publications, and videos.



The Education and Labour Market Longitudinal Linkage Platform

We are pleased to inform researchers that, as announced in the recent federal budget, a longitudinal platform linking education and labour market data is currently being developed with resources from Employment and Social Development Canada. This secure data platform will help to better track and make available important labour market information. All datasets and linkage keys prepared for the platform will be made available to researchers through the RDCs across Canada. For now, the Governance Committee supervising the implementation of the platform invites feedback from researchers as to what information they would like to get from this platform. Please contact Grant Gibson to share your recommendations. 

New data set now available

The Survey of Household Spending - 2015 is now available in the RDCs. This survey primarily collects detailed information on household expenditures. It also collects information about the annual income of household members (from personal income tax data), demographic characteristics of the household, certain dwelling characteristics (e.g., type, age and tenure) and certain information on household equipment (e.g., electronics and communications equipment).
