The 2010 edition of the Canada Year Book, available today, is a valuable reference tool that provides extensive information on trends in the nation's social, economic and environmental fabric.

The 31 chapters in this year's edition contain 456 pages of analysis, charts, maps and tables in an easy-to-use format, with data from many of Statistics Canada's latest surveys and the census.

First published in 1867, the Canada Year Book plays a key role in fulfilling Statistics Canada's mandate to collect information about life in Canada, and to present it in a way that all Canadians find accessible, useful and interesting.

Feature articles cover topics such as demographic changes in the population, as well as its ethnic makeup; an analysis of various sectors in the economy including international trade in goods and services, retail and wholesale trade, agriculture, transportation, energy, services, construction and manufacturing; an analysis of environmental issues; crime, health, the labour force, travel patterns and a look at how Canadians use technology to address life changes.

The 2010 edition of the Canada Year Book (11-402-X, $24.95) is now available. See How to order products.
