Throughout the world, children of high-status parents are more likely to get ahead in school. Three interrelated processes—the transmission of financial capital, the transmission of cultural resources, and the transmission of social capital from parents to children—are most often called on to explain this phenomenon. In this chapter, I review the measurement of family background, tracing its increasingly complex conceptualization and examining the methods used to assess the impact of family background on educational outcomes in international and comparative research. Then I assess the quality and content of family background items of past large-scale international surveys in detail.
Areas of particular social concern include housing, employment, education, health, justice, and family and cultural growth.

Federal Funding for Social Services Historically, the federal government has been responsible and provided funding for nearly all the social programs and services provided to Indigenous peoples in Canada.
First Nations peoples registered with Indian status receive federal funds for social programs on reserves through the Indian Act. The funding is directed to First Nations band administrations — bodies that are either elected or chosen through traditional means and are responsible for the operation of reserves.
Women who lost their Indian status before because they married a non-status person were consequently denied the social services offered to their counterparts with status. InBill C amended the Indian Act, allowing many women and their children to reclaim their status.
However, the bill failed to remove all forms of sex-based discrimination in the Act, leaving many Indigenous women and organizations to continue to lobby for change. See also Indigenous Women and the Franchise. The Inuit were not recognized as a federal responsibility until a decision by the Supreme Court of Canada.
Since then, the federal government has been responsible for funding health care, some economic development, post-secondary education, and negotiating and implementing self-government agreements.
Many of these organizations receive funding from the federal government. Place of Residence Modern cabin and tent 28 April Indigenous peoples live in all parts of Canada, from isolated northern communities and reserves to large urban centres.
First Nations people may live on or off reserves and the reserves themselves may be isolated — more likely in the north — relatively near urban centres — more likely in the south — or within urban centres.
According to the census, The Indigenous population of Canada continues to be predominately urban. In56 per cent of the total Canadian population lived in an urban area. Like Indigenous peoples in southern Canada, the Inuit are also migrating to urban centres.
This figure is up fromwhen only 22 per cent of Inuit lived outside of Inuit Nunangat. InNunavut was home to the highest concentration of Inuit Two Inuit women eating maktaaq bowhead whale blubber. Photo taken 10 August A report found that 68 per cent of Inuk adults in Inuit Nunangat harvested country food.
Country food remains an important food source for many Inuit, with 65 per cent of households getting at least half their meat and fish from country food, and approximately 80 per cent of Inuit Nunangat families sharing country food with people in other households.
The communal activities of harvesting, processing, distributing and preparing foods emphasize a traditional culture of co-operation. Inthe rate of employment for Indigenous peoples in Canada The rate for First Nations people aged 25 to 64 was During this same year, Indigenous youth aged 15 to 19 had an unemployment rate of See also Economic Conditions of Indigenous People.
Indigenous people are also more likely to rely on social income assistance. In some Indigenous communities, social income assistance rates are higher than 80 per cent. Income levels for Indigenous peoples are directly linked to educational attainment levels.
Younger Indigenous peoples, those aged 35 to 44, are more likely to have a high school diploma 68 per cent compared to those aged 55 to 64 These figures are significantly lower than non-Indigenous peoples in the same age categories: As ofmore Indigenous women aged 35 to 44 earned a college or university degree compared to Indigenous men in the same age category.
