Abstract

A partir des donnees de l'Enquete sur les capacites de lecture et d'ecriture utilisees quotidiennement (ECLEUQ) de Statistique Canada, nous avons etudie les differences de revenus entre les minorites et les Blancs et l'importance des capacites cognitives dans les modeles de revenus observes. Certains groupes de minorites ont des capacites de lecture et de calcul considerablement inferieures (d'apres les tests) a celles des Blancs et d'autres groupes de minorites ayant mieux reussi sur le plan economique. Par ailleurs, chez certains groupes d'hommes, ces differences expliquent en grande partie les modeles de revenus observes. Les ecarts salariaux entre les groupes ethniques et les Blancs sont, toutefois, beaucoup moins importants chez les femmes; et les variables des capacites de lecture et de calcul n'expliquent pas vraiment ces ecarts. Il est question, dans ce document, des diverses incidences sur les politiques generales.
