Six questions about the demand for artificial intelligence skills in labour markets (OECD)
This study responds to six key questions about the impact that the demand for Artificial Intelligence (AI) skills is having on labour markets. What are the occupations where AI skills are most relevant? How do different AI-relevant skills combine in job requirements? How quickly is the demand for AI-related skills diffusing across labour markets and what is the relationship between AI skill demands and the demand for cognitive skills across jobs? Finally, are AI skills leading to a wage premium?
Labour market outcomes of Indigenous journeypersons in Canada (Statistics Canada)
The study found that Indigenous journeypersons tended to certify in trades and regions with higher earnings, had higher rates of interprovincial mobility, and were more likely to obtain certification through an apprenticeship program rather than through trade qualification. However, Indigenous journeypersons had lower rates of union membership and employer-sponsored pensions.
