Le present article donne la comparaison de la taille et de la composition de l'emploi dans le secteur des sciences et du genie au Canada et aux Etats Unis. Nous examinons la part de l'emploi remunere et des gains tires d'un emploi remunere imputables a la main d'oeuvre en sciences et en genie dans les deux pays. Nos totalisations font la distinction entre un groupe de base et un groupe connexe de travailleurs en sciences et en genie. Le groupe de base comprend les informaticiens, les specialistes des sciences de la vie et sciences associees, les specialistes des sciences physiques et sciences associees, les specialistes des sciences sociales et sciences associees, et les ingenieurs. Le groupe connexe comprend les travailleurs du secteur de la sante, les directeurs des services de sciences et de genie, les technologistes et les techniciens des services de sciences et de genie, une categorie residuelle d'autres travailleurs en sciences et en genie et les enseignants du niveau postsecondaire en sciences et en genie. Nous examinons les parts de l'emploi et des gains des travailleurs en sciences et en genie au cours de la periode allant de 1980 1981 a 2000 2001. Nous presentons des comparaisons detaillees par industrie pour 2000 2001.
