Religious Diversity and Labour Market Attainment: Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, 1911-2011

Jason Dean and Maryam Dilmaghani

Abstract

We use data based on 1911 Canadian census of population and 2011 General Social Survey to study the evolution of labour market and educational attainments of Roman Catholics and Protestants in the provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Our results indicate a substantial wage-gap in favor of Protestants in 1911. By 2011, however, the wage-gap had turned in favor of Catholics. Also, the educational attainment differences of 1911, to the advantage of Protestants, appear to have almost entirely faded in 2011. Dilmaghani & Dean: Religious Diversity & Labour Market Attainment‌.
