The study Les titulaires d’un grade universitaire au Québec : ce qu’en disent les données du Recensement de 2006 examines the large pool of highly skilled labour that is the Québec population of holders of a university degree aged 25 to 64 of today. It is based on 2006 data, comparing them, according to availability and suitability, to those of the 1996 and 2001 censuses.
The analysis is descriptive and cumulative. Each chapter focuses on a new dimension, with a view to presenting an increasingly precise portrait: added to the current variables of age and sex are others that take into account academic attributes and work experience. Comparisons with Canada and Ontario on the one hand, and the dispersal of data by administrative region on the other, make it possible to assess Québec’s situation more accurately.
The population of immigrant university degree holders has been taken into account in the analysis right from the start. The entire study is enriched – even though the portrait of that population largely remains to be specified. In that respect, as in many others, the study leads to new research options.
