Impact of "ethnic mobility" on socio-economic conditions of Aboriginal peoples

Andrew J. Siggner


For the first time data from the1986 and 1996 censuses have been organized in
an historical manner with a consistent set of definitions and geographies.
Guimond (1999) has established that the Aboriginal population, both in terms
of origin and identity, has grown rapidly and that an important component of
that growth has come from personal changes in the ethnic affiliation. This
finding begs the question: what are the characteristics of the people changing
their affiliation? Using census data, this study will focus on the highest level of
schooling variable for the populations reporting Aboriginal origins and
Aboriginal identity and show how this characteristic is changing in a selected
age cohort over the ten year period 1986-96.
