This year at NILF
, we have 25 countries participating and focused sessions around Japan, China, Germany and Emerging Markets will discuss the theme of partnerships and global growth.
As shown in Table I, the sample of wives whose husbands became unemployed has employment and NILF rates slightly less than the population rates, yet they are more than twice as likely to be unemployed.
Among the married women who are NILF (NILF) and whose husbands move from employment to unemployment during the four months in sample, 11.
Descriptive statistics of the sample of 12,988 individuals who contribute the 34,363 NILF observations in Table I are given in the top panel of Table II.
58% of married women who are NILF enter the labor force (Table III, column 1, the top row entitled "4 Months Pooled, Husband Employed to Unemployed").
This section focuses on a range of social characteristics of CDEP participants and how the CDEP employed compare to the non-CDEP employed, unemployed and those NILF (as shown in Table 5).
The unemployed and NILF were less likely to speak an Indigenous language than the CDEP participants (50 per cent and 53 per cent respectively), but more likely than the non-CDEP employed (39 per cent).
However, it should be noted that, as a group, engagement in these activities by non-CDEP employed respondents was not significantly different from that evident for women and men who are NILF.
While female CDEP participants were less likely to experience any discrimination than other Indigenous females, male CDEP participants were actually significantly more likely than NILF males to be discriminated against in the previous 12 months (29 per cent and 20 per cent respectively).
The sample for the analysis that follows includes men and women aged 55 and older, except individuals who indicated that they were NILF because they were disabled.
The exclusion of the NILF-disabled was done to facilitate some of the age comparisons, but its overall effect is relatively small, The effect of this exclusion is the largest for 55- to 59-year-old men, because disabled individuals account for more than one-third of all those NILF for this age-sex group, and the disabled and the nondisabled use their time differently.
The fraction of men and women who were NILF increased with age, and those who were NILF spent more time doing household work than those who were employed.
