resource image

"Most social trends show little in the way of monthly variation. Rates of poverty and measures of inequality, for example, are quite stable month to month. However, some issues of concern to social policy advocates, researchers, and governments take a noticeable turn during the holiday season. Favourable breaks in these trends remind us that the choices we make, when coordinated and acted upon simultaneously, can have noticeable effects on the lives of individuals and families in need."
