The Sources of the New Canadian Job Stability Patterns


Canadian Journal of Economics, (Accepted).




This paper explores the causes of recent changes in Canadian job stability. Using the Labour Force Survey master files (1977-2010), I find that the increases in job stability first observed in the 1990s were in fact long lasting. Results indicate that compositional changes and the increased job stability of women within age and education groups play important roles in explaining the aggregate job stability patterns that emerge.
