Hon. A. J. MacEachen (Minister of Labour):
1. Data are not available by two week periods nor is information available for number of persons registered. The number of applications for employment at N.E.S. offices during calendar months of 1964 including workers who may have made more than one application is as follows: January, 398,043; February, 293,408; March, 290,283; April, 325,655; May, 296,023; June, 344,310; July, 349,349; August, 296,775; September, 316,718.
2. Data are not comparable. N.E.S. data represent number of applications for employment during calendar months while labour force data represent estimates of persons unemployed and seeking work during a particular week of each month. Also N.E.S. data do not represent unemployed persons by labour force definition.
Labour force estimates of persons unemployed and seeking work during survey weeks indicated in 1964 are as follows:
January 18, 466,000; February 22, 467,000; March 21, 456,000; April 18, 403,000; May 23, 293,000; June 20, 282,000; July 18, 265,000; August 22, 247,000; September 19, 218,000.
3. Data are not available for two week periods nor is information available for number of persons placed. The number of placements in employment during calendar months in 1964 including workers who may have been placed more than once is as follows:
January, 73,471; February, 66,673; March, 74,756; April, 104,380; May, 109,669; June, 109,134; July, 123,827; August, 111,407; September, 133,281.
