New from Statistics Canada: The Labour Market in Canada and the United States since the Last Recession

Published by Mark Bodnar

We're always happy to point out a cool new study from Statistics Canada...

The Labour Market in Canada and the United States since the Last Recession
by André Bernard, Analytical Studies Branch and Jeannine Usalcas, Labour Statistics Division.

This Economic Insights article reports on recent labour market trends in both Canada and the United States since the last recession. The data for Canada come from Statistics Canada’s Labour Force Survey (LFS), while those for the United States come from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a survey produced for the Bureau of Labor Statistics. For the purposes of comparison, the Canadian data have been adjusted to follow the concepts used in the United States. Unless indicated otherwise, the data for both countries are monthly and are seasonally adjusted.
