Data/Methodology: Shown here – note, the data is not adjusted for inflation
The results are in line with those described here.
In this post, I will show how to combine a series of plots into a GIF file using the animation package in R.
In this example, I will create a GIF of horizontal bar plots showing how the proportion of men and women have changed in various occupation categories in Canada. Although I will show how to generate the results, I will leave the analysis for another post – this post is just the Data and R code.
Data/Methodology: Shown here. Keep in mind that the StatsCan dataset used is not adjusted for inflation.
Continuing on my cross-Canada series on income inequality between genders and ages, today I post the results for PEI.
In this post, I’ll take a look at wage differences between genders and age groups for various occupation types in Newfoundland and Labrador.
For my next step in looking at income inequality in Canada, I thought it would be interesting to look at average wages with respect to age and gender. It would have been nice to include level-of-education and number of years of work experience (rather than just having the age of the individual), but I was unable to find a dataset with all these properties. I did find some interesting data regarding education-level and escaping from poverty, but that’s for another post.
Today, I will show the overall results for Canada and the provinces. In following days, I will publish more detailed results for the individual provinces which will show average wages for the different categories of occupation.
