Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:
A Profile of Youth Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) in Canada, 2015 to 2017 (Statistics Canada)
This study indicated various sociodemographic and psychosocial differences between Canadian youth NEET and non-NEET, and also highlighted the diversity among different youth NEET subgroups.
This report is part of a series evaluating new ways to tackle a key challenge provinces face in meeting their future needs for skilled workers: engaging enough young people in post-secondary education. The research design produces rigorous evidence about what works to increase access to post-secondary education, particularly for lower-income students and those whose parents have little or no post-secondary experience.
Testing the employment and skill impact of new technologies: A survey and some methodological issues (Maastricht University)
This paper provides an updated picture of the main empirical evidence on the relationship between new technologies and employment both in terms of overall consequences on the number of employees, tasks required, and wage/inequality effect.
This report finds between 1998 and 2018, the proportion of workers who held more than one job at the same time increased from 5.0% to 5.7%. The majority (65.7%) of multiple jobholders work full-time in their main job. Multiple jobholders work 10 hours more per week, on average, than single jobholders.
