The value of words : literacy and economic security in Canada by Vivian Shalla ( Book )
10 editions published in 1998 in French and English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Canada, like many other industrialized countries, is increasingly being forced to face the literacy problem within its own borders. Over the past decade, the issue has become more prominent on the national policy and research agenda. There has been little systematic research in Canada, however, on the relationship between literacy and income security. Using data from the Canadian component of the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS), this study seeks to fill this research gap. An in-depth exploration of the links between literacy and economic security will build on existing knowledge and will also provide useful insights that will help shape public policy

Literacy, numeracy and labour market outcomes in Canada (highlights) by David A Green ( )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 26 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
