Statistics on employment-assistance recipients
The Direction générale adjointe de la recherche, de l’évaluation et de la statistique has produced 17 statistical summaries based on Pampalon and Raymond’s material and social deprivation index. This index enables regional and local players to determine the most underprivileged areas in each of Québec’s 17 regions.
These summaries were produced in order to better support the territorial approach advocated as part of the national strategy to combat poverty and social exclusion and the accompanying action plan.
These statistical summaries are available in French only
