Canada's Families is the 1976 Census based study of changing family trends with charts, graphs and tables illustrating those changes. Written in a popular style it explores how the traditional structure of the family is emerging into its modern form...smaller, more economically active and more ready to disband if things are not working out between husband and wife.
This publication shows the changes in family demographics across Canada's Provinces and has several headings, namely, 'Family Size', 'Working Wives, Family Income and Family Expenditures' and ending with a provocative final section called 'The Future'. Much of what was written then about Canada's Families reflects similar trends in many countries of the western world.
Easy to read and follow this is one of a series of five 'popular publications' published and distributed by Statistics Canada under the authority of Canadian Government. These publications were also available in French.
As the main person writing this study it was a privilege to work with the professionals in the Census and Household Survey Field and the Information Division of Statistics Canada.
