Excerpt from executive summary:

"Work-life compendium 2001" is a new resource document that brings together a wide variety of work-life facts and figures compiled from the most recent Canadian data sources available. Data cover a range of inter-related topics, including changes in the family; child and elder care; labour force participation patterns; income and earnings; industrial, organizational and workplace change; labour legislation; and public opinion.

The compendium was co-authored by Karen Johnson of Human Resources Development Canada Women's Bureau, and Donna Lero and Jennifer Rooney of the University of Guelph Centre for Families, Work and Well-Being. The report updates and expands Lero and Johnson's "110 Canadian statistics on work and family."
