Abstract: This survey collected data from civilian, non-institutionalized population aged 16-69 in Canadian provinces. It attempts to measure the frequency and number of jobs changes in the Canadian labor market in 1988 in order to provide information on the characteristics of paid jobs held during this period. Topics include: periods of employment and unemployment, job search activities, unionization, pension plan coverage, wage rates, work schedules, inter- and intra-emplyer occupational mobility, and financial compensation during absences from work. There are 63,804 cases in 1988 cross-sectional file.
