Summary
This paper measures the volatility of manufacturing employment in different Canadian regions for the period 1976-97. It first examines the structural characteristics of regional economies and relates them to their levels of employment volatility. The analysis then focuses on testing whether diversity, growth, plant size and export intensity are empirically related to volatility levels. The analysis also examines whether increases in export orientation of a region over the levels. The analysis also examines whether increases in export orientation of a region over the study period were associated with changes in industry specialization and employment volatility.
