A student has been told by a professor that statistics on a given topic exist on the STC website, yet I have found no evidence of it. In this case, it’s about the amounts of money people get as a result of divorce settlements. Or am I missing something? I would welcome any advice!
To the best of our knowledge, Statistics Canada does not collect data on the value of divorce settlements. Our main divorce related statistics are divorces counts from vital statistics.
The closest I found to data on money people receive as a result of divorce settlements were variables on support payments in SLID and the Maintenance Enforcement Survey and a study titled “Why Do Children Move into and out of Low Income: Changing Labour Market Conditions or Marriage and Divorce”
