British Columbia stopped collecting secondary school course participation and performance data by sex in 1999.
In 2000, BC added a category, "unknown", to their apprenticship data collection form, rendering the sex category useless.
Breaking down data by male and female (sex-disaggregated data) is essential for research, policy and program development, and evaluation.
Why its not just a question of the work picture getting better... 1 2
Many suggest that the discrepancy in participation is attributable to the employment picture, but the following statistics demonstrate that this is untrue. Remeber, the major recession in the west was from 1981-1986. Its a shame we can no longer access gender disaggregated statistics in BC.
