The Research Group on Human Capital adapted a tool, developed by researchers at the Vancouver School of Economics, that aims to evaluate occupation and industry risks and benefits associated with COVID-19. You can see the tool by following this link.
This work was made possible thanks to team members Catherine Haeck and Marie Connolly from the Research Group on Human Capital of ESG UQAM, Casey Warman (Dalhousie University), Pierre-Loup Beauregard (Vancouver School of Economics, University of British Columbia), and Tímea Laura Molnár (Analysis Group). The team thanks Statistics Canada, for data access, CIRANO for its financial support and Analysis Group for providing Tímea Laura Molnár’s work pro bono.
The tool is adapted from Statistics Canada, Labour Force Surveys, 2010-2020, and the Canadian Census of population, 2016. This does not constitute an endorsement by Statistics Canada of this product.
