HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:

This study uses the 2021 Census to describe the educational attainment and earnings of the Canadian-born Black population, focusing on three groups:

  1. those with at least one African-born parent (African-origin);
  2. those with at least one Caribbean-born parent (Caribbean-origin); and
  3. those whose parents were both born in Canada (Canadian-origin).

Comparisons are drawn with the non-racialized, non-Indigenous population, both second generation and third generation or more.

The study provides a descriptive analysis of the demographic and educational characteristics of the three Canadian-born Black populations, followed by a regression analysis examining factors affecting earnings, including educational attainment, job characteristics, and other factors.
