Abstract

Changes in demographic composition and industrial structure have been used to explain rising "natural" unemployment rates in Canada. We find the change in industry mix accommodated concurrent changes in labour force structure, but the substitution within industries, rather than changes in the mix, was the principal adjustment mechanism. Hence, we find it implausible that structural changes in labour supply should have been merely a response to industrial demand
