Labour and Social Statistics
The Labour and Social Statistics section is responsible for monitoring, reporting and developing indicators on labour and social conditions within BC. The section covers a wide range of topics including: Aboriginal Peoples, immigrants, labour market condition (current and projected), post-secondary student outcomes research, economic hardship, education, crime, health and persons with disabilities. The labour and social section is also responsible for reporting the measures of dependency on the social safety net (income assistance and employment insurances rates) for a variety of BC geographies.
The Labour and Social Stats section can assist users in specifying their data acquisition requests to Statistics Canada as well as helping to locate data to meet particular needs.
