1) only 12.1% of Canada's 15-29 year olds are not working, in school or training. We can do better, but we're better than most of OECD's 36 nations.
2) this number was 16.6% 5 days ago. Shocking. Here's what happened next /2
OECD needs to make data from around the world comparable. /4
Meantime I asked fed bureaucrats at ESDC (relevant dept) whether they'd knew what could cause the discrepancy.
Everyone responded within 24 hrs. This is what happened. /5
They immediately withdrew the chart. Reformulated it. Republished it today and posted it on the tweeter.
The perfect way to deal with a simple error.
One more thing. /6

2016 data would not have been weighted with 2016 census results for newcomers, indigenous populations, which have different NEET rates (higher for both? unsure).
LFS doesn't survey reserves /2
(56K people sampled for a labour force of 18.6M)
Indigenous and newcomers biggest source of growth in 15-29 year old population.
So it's possible .... /3
