Gaining and Losing Literacy Skills Over the Lifecourse (2007)

It employs a synthetic cohort analysis to document net skill change for various demographic groups for Canada and the provinces and to explore the individual characteristics that influence whether a particular group has gained or lost skill on average over the nine year reference period.

Literacy Skills of Canadian Youth (1997)

This study examines the distribution of literacy skills of Canadian youth. Adults aged 16 to 25 can be described as "in transition" from completing their formal schooling to entering the labour market, so the data can be used to examine the effects of formal schooling on literacy levels. Provincial differences in literacy levels are also examined, as are differences in individuals of varying backgrounds and personal characteristics.
