Work Force Demographics

OtherThe study of demographics in the petroleum industry is important. Demographics are the study of certain socioeconomic groups who are characterized by age, income, sex, education, and occupation. It helps businesses and governments assess the growth of the industry in Canada. As economists and businesses study the energy sectors' demographics, three trends do emerge. One is that certain parts of the industry have grown in the number of employed, but some have dropped significantly. The demographic forecast has shown an increase in the number of women working in the petroleum industry. As the petroleum industry grows there is an overall benefit to the Canadian economy. All these demographic statistics give the industry a positive outlook for continued growth.
