description:
The information obtained from the Survey of Displaced Workers will provide: 1) The number of workers affected by job displacements and the reasons for job cutbacks or elimination of shifts; 2) The pattern of stability of employment within certain industries and occupations; 3) Measurement of the impact of job displacement such as period of time a person is without work between jobs and whether it was necessary for a person to relocate in order to find work; 4) Information on insurance benefits and training following displacements. The primary ob jective of this survey was to estimate the number of Canadians who were displaced from a job or business during the five-year period from January 1, 1981 to December 31, 1985. The data collected provides an insight into both the reason for job displacement, and the consequences of the displacement. For the purposes of this survey, a displaced worker is anyone who, having held a steady job for a substantial period of time (at least one or two years), lost their job because of a plant closing, an employer going out of business, or a layoff from which the worker was not recalled.
