HR Employees in Saskatchewan


I have a patron who’s looking for the number of people employed in human resources in SK. I’ve found archived figures for 2006, based on the old SOC. Is there a source for more current data?


The CANSIM Table 282-0010 uses the 2006 NOC-S categories with the LFS to provide annual statistics. You'll need to select the "Add/Remove Data" tab to select SK and the NOC-S categories most appropriate to HR. The level at which NOC-S is reported might not be granular enough to identify all HR occupations, though.

There's also the NHS for Education and Labour:

And there are several tables with Occupation - National Occupational Classification (NOC) 2011 (691) at the provincial level. These include the NOC : 112 Human resources and business service professionals and 1121 Human resources professionals.
