In the past several years, significant success has been achieved in lowering the unemployment rates in Ontario. Various employment service programs have been designed and deployed to reach specific target groups. Looking at the results of these efforts in a holistic way, several questions are developing: Who were the unemployed? What segments of the unemployed responded best to the government incentives? What did the unemployed do prior to unemployment?
The presentation provided below attempts to provide answers to these questions. The succinct style of the presentation leaves the reader space for personal interpretation and speculation. If you have constructive thoughts about improving our interpretation of this data, please let us know.
