I have a researcher who is looking at individuals who are working for the minimum wage. He is looking for demographic characteristics particularly the age, sex and educational attainment. Recognizing that the minimum wage differs between provinces he is interested if those provinces with a higher minimum wage have a different demographic profile, so he wants provincial level data...
Any ideas, as I have exhausted my limited knowledge.
This looks promising, I think:
The researcher may also be interested in the Labour Force Survey (LFS) public use microdata files (PUMF) that are available in the DLI collection and in the following documents:
Minimum wage . Perspectives on Labour and Income. January 2009.
Minimum wage . Perspectives on Labour and Income. October 2006.
Minimum wage workers. Perspectives on Labour and Income. March 2004.
Working for minimum wage . Perspectives on Labour and Income. Winter 1989.
You may also find additional (non-StatCan) papers on the topic by searching bibliographic databases in your collection.
