Statistics Canada. (2004, December 7) Youth in Transition Survey, 15 year-olds (Mathematics Cohort) (YITS). (Study/report does not include homeschool students. “Target population: The target population for the Math Cohort (15 year-olds) comprises students who were born in 1987 and were attending any form of schooling in the ten provinces of Canada. Schools on Indian reserves were excluded, as were various types of schools for which it would be infeasible to administer the survey, such as home schooling and special needs schools. These exclusions represent less than 4% of 15-year-olds in Canada” (p. 2). “The Youth in Transition Survey (YITS) is undertaken jointly by Statistics Canada and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. This survey is designed to examine the major transitions in the lives of youth, particularly between education, training and work” (p. 1).)
