The data presented in this report are derived
primarily from The Atlantic Groundfish Strategy (TAGS)
Database of the Department of Human Resources Development
Canada. Unless otherwise specified, all data are
effective as of May 30, 1997. Figures may change due to
HRDC's evaluation and program review.
The Census Consolidated Subdivisions (CCS) are areas
defined by Statistics Canada to enable the organization
and presentation of data into small geographic regions.
In this report, the data are sub-divided into 80 areas,
each of which is delineated using an alphanumeric code
(for example 1A). The CCS represents the smallest unit of
geography in which meaningful and accurate TAGS data can
be presented for all areas of the Province.
HUMAN RESOURCE CENTRES
HRDC operates fifteen Human Resource Centres of Canada
(HRCC). Each of these consists of a HRCC office
responsible for the overall provision of programs and
services to clients in that area. The HRCC area is not
necessarily the place of residence of an individual. For
example, there are 510 TAGS clients currently living
outside the Province. In this report, these clients are
included within a Provincial HRCC.
Economic Zones are geographic areas defined by the Task
Force on Community Economic Development to facilitate
economic planning and development at an appropriate level
of geographic organization. There are 20 Economic Zones
in the Province.
A NOTE ON BOUNDARIES
The data for CCSs and Economic Zones were created using
the mailing address postal code of individual clients.
Adjustments have been made where postal codes overlap the
boundaries of these areas.
The source population refers to all persons in a region
or area who were 15 years of age or over when the 1991
Census was taken. These are the most recent age-specific
population estimates available for small areas of the
TAGS permits clients to earn the equivalent of 50 percent
of their eligible benefit in fishing income and 25
percent of employment income from other sources before
the earnings reduce the TAGS benefit amount. Those who
have earned income below the allowable amount are not
included in the HRDC pay data used in this report.
FUTURE PROGRAM OPTIONS
The EI Reach Back figures contained herein are based on
clients who were eligible for Employment Insurance (EI)
in a 3 year reference period even though the provision
does consider one type of claim - parental - for up to a
5 year period. Therefore, a small number of such
claimants may be excluded from these analyses.
PRIVACY OF INDIVIDUALS
In this report all numbers are rounded to the nearest 10
in order to protect the privacy of individuals. For this
