Real-time local business conditions, December 12 to 18, 2022
Weekly data on real-time local business conditions are now available for December 12 to 18, 2022.
Note to readers
The Real-time Local Business Conditions Index is released as an experimental statistic to measure business activity in real time during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The index tracks business conditions in Abbotsford, Barrie, Calgary, Edmonton, Guelph, Halifax, Hamilton, Kanata, Kelowna, Kitchener, London, Montréal, Oshawa, Ottawa–Gatineau, Québec, Regina, Saskatoon, Sherbrooke, St. Catharines–Niagara Falls, St. John's, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Windsor and Winnipeg.
A rising index reflects improving business conditions in an urban centre, while a declining index signals deteriorating business conditions.
The Index has three components that combine alternative data sources with Statistics Canada's data holdings: the first is a static component to measure the economic size of a business district at the local level; the second tracks operating conditions of the businesses in a given area; and the third measures the level of business activity in the area using road traffic data.
Data on real-time local business conditions for December 19, 2022, to January 1, 2023, will be released on January 6, 2023.
The "Real-time Local Business Conditions Index" includes the latest data in easy-to-read tables and charts, as well as a detailed explanation of how the index was designed.
