Have patterns of learning and working changed for youth? : final report by Tomasz Gluszynski( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 89 libraries worldwide
In the last decade, there has been a greater demand for high skills to match jobs in the new economy. Are youth changing the time spent in schooling and work? Are youth studying longer? Are they working earlier? Are they combining work and studying? Are they training more? And finally, did the changes come at a price? Using the General Social Survey cycles 8 and 12 data on time use, this study attempted to investigate changes in patterns of time spent at school and work by Canadian youth (15-24- and 25-29-year-olds). In each age group, the data were analyzed separately for those who spent most of their time in school and those who spent most of their time working. The study found the following: Over time, more youth seemed to be studying longer, thereby gaining more skills. Many students also reported working while in school, which allowed them to gain work experience, and this figure also increased over time. There was also an increase in the participation in formal and informal training. Their income improved between 1992 and 1998. However, these positive changes came at a price, with an increasing majority that often felt rushed. Among those youth who were working, a high proportion worked in paid employment and only a small proportion were self employed. However, significant differences were observed between younger and older youth. There was an increase in formal and informal training among the younger youth between 1992 and 1998 but these figures decreased for the older youth. Working youth reported being very busy and often rushed during their regular day. A bibliography is included. (Contains 13 tables.)

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
This paper builds on previous work by the Applied Research Branch and represents a more detailed look at the issue of non-parental child care (NPC). It sets out a framework through which the various forms of care can be measured using the National Longitudinal Survey of Children & Youth (NLSCY). An overview of NPC based on the literature and an annotated bibliography of current are presented in the first two chapters. The remainder of the paper builds on the research found in the bibliography. Chapter three discusses the process & content issues to be considered when measuring NPC on a large-scale survey such as the NLSCY. This is followed by information on a research framework developed to guide the data, research, & policy strategy for the Branch. The final chapter reviews outstanding methodological issues to be considered when measuring NPC through both the NSLCY & a telephone-based care provider survey. It addresses the recommendations made in a technical paper discussing the importance of & most feasible way of collecting data directly from the child's care provider
