Employment and social assistance receipt among overdose fatalities in British Columbia / by Grant Schellenberg, Yan Zhang, and Christoph Schimmele, Social Analysis and Modelling Division, Statistics Canada.: CS11-626/2019-90E-1-PDF

"This article in the Economics Insights series documents the employment histories and income sources of people who died of an illicit drug overdose in British Columbia from January 1, 2007, to December 31, 2016. The data are from the British Columbia (BC) Coroners Service and from administrative data files. The majority of people who died from an illicit drug overdose in British Columbia appear to have occupied a position of economic vulnerability for a considerable portion of their lives, characterized by low and decreasing employment and increasing reliance on social assistance. There are also marked differences in employment, earnings, and social assistance receipt between women and men, younger and older age groups, and between subsets of male overdose fatalities who had sustained, marginal, or near-absent levels of labour force attachment"--Page 1.
