Estimating parental leave in Canada using administrative data: CS11-633/2017-9E-PDF

"This document describes the procedures for using linked administrative data sources to estimate paid parental leave rates in Canada and the issues surrounding this use. The paper first discusses the advantages and limitations of major relevant survey and administrative data sources for studying paid parental leave. It then outlines the steps taken to match the T1 Family File with the linkage file consisting of the T4 file, the Record of Employment (ROE) and the Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program, for the purpose of estimating parental leave rates. It further evaluates alternative ways of identifying parental leave based on information from the ROE and employment insurance benefits"--Abstract, p. 5.
