This Month's Issue


Saskatchewan Declining Productivity
Living arrangements are slow to change and recently released data from the 2016 census show that
most of the long-standing trends continued from 2011 to 2016.
  • The number of collective dwellings is increasing because of the growth in the number of specialized senior facilities for seniors.
  • Measured by the number of persons, the average household increased in size between 2006 and 2016, reversing a long-standing downward trend.
  • One-third of children are being raised in lone-parent families but the proportion increases to nearly 50% in North Battleford and Prince Albert.
  • There are 2,140 adults living in a same-sex relationship with about one-third legally married.
  • One-half of the men in the 20 to 24 age group and 20% of those 25 to 29 years of age were unmarried and still living at home. The proportion of women living at home is lower
