An issue of the Institute of Statistics of Quebec - January 2009.

The report "Ressources humaines en science et technologie (RHST) au Québec – Quelques faits tirés du recensement de 2006" (Human resources in science and technology (HRST) in Quebec – Some facts from the 2006 census), covers not only Quebec, but also Canada and Ontario during the period from 2001 to 2006.

Thus, this information allows to study the population aged 25-64, holding an university degree including PhD, or working in a science and technology occupation.

In Quebec, for example, in 2006, there were 880,670 people (25-64 age group) with an university degree ; 33,220 with a PhD. Furthermore, 85.5% of PhDs are employed in Science and Technology.
