Articles and reports: 11-633-X2018018


This paper describes the data sources and methods used to backcast provincial and territorial income-based gross domestic product (GDP), expenditure-based GDP, real gross domestic income, unemployment rates, depreciation rates and urbanization rates. Nevertheless, estimates can be produced that are very close and which are useful for understanding the evolution of the provincial and territorial economies. Instrumental variable techniques are used to estimate the historical movements of these economic variables back to 1950.
