A Preliminary Report on the Socio-Economic Position of Blacks in the Canadian Regional Settings as Reflected in the 1971 Census Data.
McKinney, David W., Jr.; And Others
This report examines the distribution of Canadian blacks in industries and occupations relative to all other employed Canadians. By establishing a control over labor market determinants in order to note the effects of non-labor market factors on this distribution, it is determined that the strongest non-labor market factors pull in the direction of disproportionate underrepresentation of blacks in high ranked industries and occupations and their disproportionate overrepresentation in low ranked industries and occupations. The authors also note that blacks outside the Atlantic provinces are, in general, proportionately better educated at all educational levels than most other employed Canadians. Tables and bibliography are included. (Author/WP)
