Literacy, numeracy and labour market outcomes in Canada by David A Green( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This study uses Canadian data from the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS) to investigate the relationship between labour market success and literacy skills, specifically prose literacy, document literacy and quantitative literacy or numeracy. Earnings is the most commonly used and widely accepted measure of labour market success. It has the advantage of incorporating the dimensions of both "price" that is, the wage rate, and "quantity" the number of hours worked per week or the number of weeks worked per year. Accordingly, this paper focusses on the relationship between literacy and annual, weekly and hourly earnings. Important labour market outcomes not examined in this paper are labour force participation and unemployment (or employment conditional on participation). A multivariate framework is employed in this paper to take account of other factors that influence labour market outcomes, such as educational attainment, gender and experience
