Echoes of the QLSCD and The Investigator
Issue 14 of the Newsletter is hot off the presses. It can be found by clicking on the tab “Information for Participating Families”.
The Institut de la statistique du Québec has released a new fascicle entitled L’adaptation psychosociale et scolaire lors du passage au secondaire. This publication looks at the changes in terms of psychosocial and school adjustment that take place between Grade 6 and the first year of secondary school among children born in Québec who followed a regular school path. It also shows whether these changes vary by sex, mother’s educational level, household income level, and having lived or not with both biological parents in Grade 6. Lastly, the fascicle highlights the links between certain characteristics of children at the start of their educational path, such as their level of physical, cognitive and socioemotional development, and the risk of dropping out among Secondary 1 students.
A video on employment among 15-year-olds
The fascicle based on QLSCD data on work, health and safety among 15-year-olds is the subject of a video on the website of the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail. This video answers several questions:
Why draw a portrait of work, health and safety among 15-year-olds?
What is the proportion of 15-year-olds who work?
Why do these teenagers choose to work?
Do many teenagers injure themselves at work?
What are some possible strategies for action?

The first edition of the “In 2001... I’ll be 5 years old!” pre-test was carried out in 1996, marking the first steps of I am, I'll be! A symposium entitled Les 20 ans de l’ÉLDEQ : De la naissance à la connaissance will take place on May 10 as part of the 2016 Acfas Conference that will be held at the UQAM. This symposium will bring together researchers and government partners, and will allow us to look at the most compelling results of the QLSCD and to reflect on their usefulness for governance and intervention.
