Metric Under Development

The One NS Digital Dashboard is a work in progress. The metric for this goal is under development, as we work to identify accurate data sources and proper methodologies. It will be updated as soon as possible.

Current situation

This goal will be updated when the results of the 2016 census are available.

Note that the definition of employment rate stated in the Commission’s goal is incorrect. The employment rate is the percentage of the total population that is employed.

What this means

The employment rate number tells us the percentage of the working age population among First Nations and African Nova Scotians that are employed. It reflects both the percentage of those populations that choose to look for work, as well as the percentage of those that look for employment and are unable to find it.
