In the past, this variable was called Labour force activity.

Footnote 5

This variable shows a variant of CIP which classifies fields of study into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math and computer sciences) and BHASE (non-STEM) categories and sub-categories. For more information on the CIP classification, see the Classification of Instructional Programs, Canada 2016: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/eng/concepts/classification.

This variant is different from the STEM variant used in the 2011 National Household Survey. For information on comparability between the two variants, refer to the Education Reference Guide, Census of Population, 2016, Catalogue no. 98-500-X2016013.

The term 'Business, humanities, health, arts, social science, and education fields' (BHASE) includes all of the non-STEM fields from the STEM and BHASE (non-STEM) groupings variant, an alternative presentation of the Classification of Instructional Programs, 2016. This includes 'Business and administration', 'Arts and humanities', 'Social and behavioural sciences', 'Legal professions and studies', 'Health care', 'Education and teaching' and 'Trades, services, natural resources and conservation'.
