Overall, 2005 bachelor’s degree graduates had average annual earnings of $45,200 (in 2014 dollars) in the first year after graduation, growing by 66% to reach $74,900 eight years out.
(...)
Nothing less than a new policy research model, which brings together policy makers, data providers, researchers, and other stakeholders in order to move forward on a broad skills-focused research agenda in a timely manner, is required.

3. The role of sharing data in ending homelessness - July 26
(Nick Falvo)

The role of sharing data in ending homelessness
http://calgaryhomeless.com/the-role-of-sharing-data-in-ending-homelessness/
By: Nick Falvo
July 26, 2016
On May 4, 2016, approximately 40 people attended the First Annual Canadian Homelessness Data Sharing Initiative, sponsored in Calgary by the Calgary Homeless Foundation and the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy. Those attending included government officials, researchers and students. Here are 10 things to know about the event.
[Click the link above to access thecomplete minutes (in PDF format) of the full day’s event on May 4, as well as a dozen related slide presentations.]

1. The Data Sharing Initiative was jointly organized by the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) [ http://calgaryhomeless.com/ ] and the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy [ http://www.policyschool.ca/research-areas/economic-social-policy/ ].

2. When researchers want to access data on homeless persons in Canada, there isn’t a single point of access.

3. Canada’s federal government has data on homeless persons from roughly half of the country’s homeless shelters.

4. All municipally-funded Toronto homeless shelters are required to use the Shelter Management Information System (SMIS) database system.

5. The City of Montreal has no centrally-coordinated database system for homeless shelters. However, the three main men’s shelters are using HIFIS, and other individual shelters in Montreal do keep data on their clients.

6. Ottawa homeless shelters have an open system.

7. Throughout Canada, there are many examples of data repositories in the natural sciences and some in the social sciences, but very few in social policy.

8. Canada’s major funding body for social sciences research has started mandating data management plans.

9. The one-day event allowed for some invaluable networking.

10. The Data Sharing Initiative will become an annual event.Related link:

Using low income and material deprivation to monitor poverty reduction
By Geranda Notten and Michael Mendelson

Abstract
http://www.caledoninst.org/Publications/Detail/?ID=1103
Poverty measures commonly used in Canada set a dollar amount – a poverty line – below which a household is said to be in poverty. In Europe, 'material deprivation' is used to complement the dollar yardstick as another way of measuring poverty. A material deprivation indicator focuses on the outcomes of not having enough financial resources – namely, being unable to afford typical necessities. This paper explains why Ottawa should develop a material deprivation index as a complementary indicator with which to monitor progress on poverty reduction.

Minimum Wage, Maximum Wager in Alberta
Commentary by Sherri Torjman and Ken Battle
July 2016

Abstract
http://www.caledoninst.org/Publications/Detail/?ID=1102
Alberta, more than any other province in the country, has endured a period of fiscal pain unlike any time in its history. Precipitous drops in oil prices mean lower revenues for both resource companies and government. Rather than hunker down and retreat, the province has boldly proceeded with its promise to bring in a $15 minimum wage. It will increase the minimum wage in three incremental steps in October 2016, 2017 and 2018. At first glance, this announcement may seem wrong-headed in such a tough economic climate. But the province recognized that there is clearly something wrong with the equation in which minimum-wage, full-time work equals desperate poverty. Alberta has made the correct choice: to tip the scales in favour of working-poor households.

5. Basic income is the best public service we could ask for - July 22
( Robin Boadway and Roderick Benns)

Last week, the Toronto Star carried an opinion piece by
Armine Yalnizyan entitled
Basic income? How about basic services?
https://www.thestar.com/opinion/commentary/2016/07/19/basic-income-how-about-basic-services.html
By Armine Yalnizyan
July 19, 2016
Could a provincial basic income approach federal levels of income support, knowing even $15,000 a year is far below the poverty line for a single person? Basic math shows this is unlikely. Anyone working under 25 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, at the minimum wage ($11.40) is better off not working — not a strong government objective...

Basic income is the best public service we could ask for
http://www.basicincomecanada.org/basic_income_is_the_best_public_service_we_could_ask_for
July 22, 2016
By Robin Boadway and Roderick Benns
As basic income policy gets more press as a way to drastically reduce poverty, inevitably there will be those who seek to preserve the status quo approach.
This has served us inadequately for many years and yet there are some believers who remain. These same believers often seek to create false policy choices, as Armine Yalnizyan has done in her recent offering to the Star, ‘Basic income? How about basic services?’

Total expenditures on research and development (R&D) in Canada's higher education sector edged up 0.6% to $12.9 billion in 2014/2015, after declining in 2013/2014. The gain was attributable to higher spending in the natural sciences and engineering field, as expenditures in the field of social sciences and humanities were unchanged.

26 Jul 2016 | Canada
Recent report from the Canadian Feminist Alliance for International Action (FAFIA) reflects on the economic, social and cultural rights of Canadian women in the past decade noting that the Government of Canada, under the Harper administration, often failed to respect, protect and fulfill these rights. FAFIA outlines quality child care as key in improving the working conditions of women and recommends that the current Government of Canada fulfill its election promise to begin building a National Early Learning and Child Care Framework.

26 Jul 2016 | International
Recent report from the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) considers early childhood education provision in eight countries.

2015 agenda from Child Care Aware of America considers the documented issues associated with child care in the United States including expensive fees, inadequate child care provider compensation and quality of care that varies widely by state.

http://www.childcarecanada.org/documents/research-policy-practice/16/07/beyond-baby-steps-planning-national-child-care-system
20 Jul 2016 | Canada
New article published in Policy Options considers the importance of the federal governments role in designing a national child care plan. Authors present what the current system is lacking and ways to improve it. They conclude that "by moving beyond baby steps to planning a national child care system, the Trudeau government can help lead the development of a child care system that works for all of us."

Children's rights Wiki - from CRIN
http://wiki.crin.org/mediawiki/index.php
The Children's Rights Wiki assembles all information about children's rights in every country in one place. The purpose of the project is to make the huge volume of information that exists on children's rights more accessible, assist children's rights advocates in identifying persistent violations, and inspire collective action. This is a web-based, multi-lingual and interactive project.

What is the difference between spam, malware and phishing?
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/8267578/What-is-the-difference-between-spam-malware-and-phishing.html
As cybercriminals turn their attentions to social networks, a variety of attacks can be expected. But what do the terms mean and how do they differ?

By Gilles:
Some of the subscribers to this newsletter were surprised to find an email message purporting to be sent by "me" a few days ago. The FROM line of the email contained an error in my email address - my username was correct but the domain name that is part of my email address was incorrect. This is "same old, same old" to many cybernauts who spend long hours doing online research, but many people are still unaware of the difference between spam, malware and phishing.
