|Title:||Seasonal Unemployment in Canada, 1955 to 1970|
|Authors:||Hardy, Margaret Helen|
|Abstract:||<p>The purpose of this thesis was to determine whether or not the average seasonal increase in unemployment from 1965 to 1970 had changed appreciably from the average which obtained during 1955 to 1960. Estimates of the average seasonal increase in unemployment indicated that its magnitude was smaller during the late sixties than during the late sixties. Regression equations were also estimated for each category, and these indicate that factors other than the general level of economic activity were responsible for the declining summer-to-winter increase in unemployment. Analysis of the employment indices suggests that this estimated decline has been mainly die to the changing industrial composition of the economy towards industries which are less prone to severe seasonal fluctuations in employment and unemployment.</p>|
