1. Poorer Canadians more likely to die younger: Statistics Canada - July 18
(Ottawa Citizen)

Poorer Canadians more likely to die younger: Statistics Canada
http://goo.gl/WMcvU
July 18, 2013
By Derek Abma
OTTAWA — Money may not be everything, but a new report from Statistics Canada suggests it can be a matter of life and death — with poorer Canadians more likely to die younger.
The federal agency tracked mortality rates of 2.7 million Canadians aged 25 or older between 1991 and 2006. Out of this group, 426,979, or 16 per cent, had died by the end of the study period. Those who were in top 20 per cent for family income were most likely to still be alive after 15 1/2 years, and that probability shrank as one moved further down the income ladder.

3. The Dilemma of Housing in Alberta - July 15
(Action to End Poverty in Alberta and Momentum)

The Dilemma of Housing in Alberta
By Joe Ceci, Coordinator - Action to End Poverty in Alberta
and Mike Brown, Communications Coordinator, Momentum
http://povertyreduction.alberta.ca/Blog/Dilemma_Housing_Alberta
July 15, 2013
The devastating floods in Southern Alberta, the worst in recent memory, have thrown into question the critical need for safe, affordable housing for the tens of thousands of Albertans.
(...)
Action to End Poverty in Alberta and Vibrant Communities Calgary recently co-published a report entitled Poverty Costs 2.0: Investing in Albertans (June 2013) which notes that housing insecurity is a growing issue in Alberta. The recent flooding has exacerbated this issue and shows an even clearer need for government intervention.

In summer 2014, Statistics Canada will have a new way of telling the story of how governments in this country collect and spend their revenues and manage their balance sheets.

7. Recent releases from UNICEF:
--- The State of the World’s Children 2013: Children with Disabilities - April 24
---
2012 UNICEF Annual Report - July 15 (2013)

NEW from UNICEF:

April 24, 2013
The State of the World’s Children 2013: Children with Disabilities
http://www.unicef.org/sowc2013/
Each year, UNICEF’s flagship publication, The State of the World's Children, closely examines a key issue affecting children. The State of the Word’s Children website includes digital versions of report component such as supporting data, statistics and stories in addition to online only features.
---

The 2013 edition of The State of the World’s Children is dedicated to the situation of children with disabilities. The report examines the barriers – from inaccessible buildings to dismissive attitudes, from invisibility in official statistics to vicious discrimination – that deprive children with disabilities of their rights and keep them from participating fully in society. It also lays out some of the key elements of inclusive societies that respect and protect the rights of children with disabilities, adequately support them and their families, and nurture their abilities – so that they may take advantage of opportunities to flourish and make their contribution to the world.

Executive Summary (PDF - 1.8MB, 28 pages)
http://www.unicef.org/sowc2013/files/SOWC2013_Exec_Summary_ENG_Lo_Res_24_Apr_2013.pdf
Excerpt:
In many countries, responses to the situation of children with disabilities are largely limited to institutionalization, abandonment or neglect. These responses are the problem, and they are rooted in negative or paternalistic assumptions of incapacity, dependency and difference that are perpetuated by ignorance. What is needed is a commitment to these children’s rights and their futures, giving priority to the most disadvantaged – as a matter of equity and for the benefit of all.

Statistics
http://www.unicef.org/sowc2013/statistics.html
- incl. links to 14 tables of economic and social statistics for the countries and territories of the world, with particular reference to children’s well-being.

Customized statistical tables
http://www.unicef.org/statistics/index_24183.html
The statistical tool includes economic and social data from 195 countries and territories, with particular reference to children’s well-being. Users can choose their countries and indicators to build tables on the fly, or download the numbers into an Excel spreadsheet. These statistics are derived from UNICEF’s flagship publication, The State of the World’s Children.

2012 UNICEF Annual Report

UNICEF celebrates a year of important firsts in 2012
http://www.unicef.org/policyanalysis/index_69815.html
By Chris Niles, UNICEF correspondent
News Release
New York
15 July 2013
UNICEF’s 2012 annual report celebrates a year of successes for children amidst a challenging climate. The report recognizes an important year of ‘firsts’ – from one year polio-free in India to important new global partnerships that tackled such issues as preventable child deaths and affordable medicines. As the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals approaches, UNICEF has seen important gains in preventing child mortality, lower levels of child poverty, increased immunization coverage and more girls in school. However, too many children continue to struggle. 2012 was a year of extra effort to reach them.

The Canadian Social Research Newsletter mailing list is not used for any purpose except to distribute each weekly newsletter.
I promise not share any information on this list, nor to send you any junk mail.

Links presented in the Canadian Social Research Newsletter point to different views about social policy and social programs.
There are some that I don't agree with, so don't get on my case, eh...

Feel free to distribute this newsletter as widely as you wish, but please remember to mention Canadian Social Research Links when you do.
