"Ian Stewart was a major force in public policy research, analysis and advice in Ottawa from the mid-1960's to the early 1980's. In his work as a public servant Ian continually brought solid research and analysis to public policy issues, including the role of the state. As we deal with the many challenges ahead, we need more of this approach. This volume contains contributions from leading Canadian researchers and policy advisers that discuss - in the tradition of Ian Stewart - specific public policy issues and the role of an intelligent government in addressing them."--Back cover
An index of economic well-being for Canada by Lars Osberg( Book )
10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
The objective of this paper is to develop an index of economic well-being for Canada for 1971-97 using a framework originally laid out by Lars Osberg (1985). The four components of well-being taken into account in this approach are explained: effective per-capita consumption flows and flows of household production & other unmarked goods & services; net societal accumulation of stocks of productive resources; poverty and inequality as indicated by the Gini index, and depth & incidence of poverty; and indicators of insecurity, particularly economic insecurity from unemployment, ill health, single parent poverty, and poverty in old age. Estimates of the overall index and each component are presented and the index is compared with other measures of economic welfare such as per-capita gross domestic product

7 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Have the living standards of Canadians improved or deteriorated in recent years? An answer to this seemingly straightforward question is actually very difficult. This is because of the large number of possible indicators that could be chosen to track trends in living standards. This report, which represents the living standards domain of the Canadian Index of Wellbeing, provides a comprehensive overview of trends in a number of indicators of living standards over the 1981-2010 period in Canada
Human capital and productivity in British Columbia : a productivity discussion paper by Alexander Murray( Book )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
In 2007, the BC Progress Board identified British Columbia's lagging productivity growth as a major concern for both the public and private sectors. The Board commissioned the Centre for the Study of Living Standards (CSLS) to write a report on productivity drivers in British Columbia and to suggest strategic areas for improvement. The report identified five areas for improvement: investment, education, innovation, resource reallocation, and trade and migration. The present report examines the strategic area of education, or human capital. The body of the report contains a discussion of how human capital is measured and what is known about its effects on productivity and other economic outcomes; an overview of human capital infrastructure in British Columbia; an analysis of the province's human capital development outcomes; a discussion of two populations with unique human capital challenges--recent immigrants and Aboriginal people; and policy recommendations relevant to each of the four human capital challenge areas for improvement.--Includes text from document

New estimates of the index of economic well-being for Canada and the provinces, 1981-2008 by Lars Osberg( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
This report presents new estimates of the Index of Economic Well-being (IEWB) and its four domains (consumption flows, stocks of wealth, economic equality and economic security) for Canada and the provinces for the 1981-2008 period. It finds that the IEWB advanced at a 1.20 per cent average annual growth rate over the period, below the 1.58 per cent growth for GDP per capita. Both the consumption and wealth domains experienced solid advances over the period, but these developments were offset by declines in the equality and economic security domains. The IEWB addresses most of the recommendations of the recently released Commission for the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress (the Stiglitz Report) on what aspects of economic reality an index of economic well-being should capture
