Abstract

Measuring Labour Markets in Canada and the United States: 2010 Edition is the sixth installment in our ongoing research to assess the performance of labour markets and explain why results differ among jurisdictions. This study provides a series of specific evaluations as well as a comprehensive measure of labour market performance. Indicators of labour performance such as job creation, unemployment, and productivity are used to assess Canadian provincial and US state labour market performance. This study also examines those characteristics and regulations of the labour market that have been shown to affect its performance. Below are some of the main findings of the 2010 edition of Measuring Labour Markets in Canada and the United States.

Keywords: Labor Market, Canada, Provinces, Statistics, United States, States Labor Policy, Canada Provinces, Labor Policy
