The statistical data pertaining to lost contacts used in this project was supplied by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. These statistics include all the departures identified by the field in its monthly reports for two years, 2002-2003 and 2003-2004.
The statistical data provided by the Ministry is organized in the following categories: exit date, intake date, sector, network, local training board, age group, initial assessment level, assessment level upon departure, gender, source of income, status at exit, reason for leaving, and status after 3 months and 6 months. These categories represent variables that can be cross referenced to bring out the particulars related to departures and lost contacts. The tables below, containing statistical data, illustrate several cross references of these variables.
Given that the statistical data is limited to two consecutive years, it is not possible to speak of tendencies. The question of tendencies is best dealt with within the context of several years. This being said, the following observations can nevertheless be made.
|Year||Total for the Province||Anglophone||% of total||Native||% of total||Francophone||% of total||Deaf||% of total|
(Note: The “% of total” represents the registrations for a stream as a percentage of all registrations in the province for the given year).
