    Description:

    Like most statistical agencies, Statistics Canada publishes three Gross Domestic Product (GDP) series. These are the output-based GDP, the income-based GDP and the expenditure-based GDP. This document is aimed at describing the concepts, definitions, classifications and statistical methods underlying the output-based GDP series, also known as GDP by industry or simply monthly GDP.

    The report is organized into seven chapters. Chapter 1 defines what GDP by industry is, describes its various uses and how it connects with the other components of the Canadian System of National Accounts. Chapter 2 deals with the calculation of the GDP by industry estimates. Chapter 3 examines industry and commodity classification schemes. Chapter 4 discusses the subject of deflation. The choice of deflators, the role of the base year and the method of rebasing are all addressed in this chapter. Chapter 5 looks at such technical issues as benchmarking, trading day and seasonal adjustment. Chapter 6 is devoted to the presentation of the GDP by industry, detailing the format, release dates and modes of dissemination, as well as the need and the frequency of revising the estimates. Finally, Chapter 7 reviews the historical development of monthly GDP from 1926 to the present.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    A theoretical link between innovation and economic growth has been contemplated since the late 1700s. Professor Ajay Agrawal discusses the significance of knowledge spillovers, the relation to innovation and growth, and the closely related concept of absorptive capacity. Clearly, the immense complexity of the issue of innovation and economic growth has increased scholarly interest in the topic.

    Description:

    This paper examines the factors contributing to the adoption of advanced technologies in the Canadian food-processing sector. The numbers of technologies used by a plant is found to be highly correlated with expected gains in firm performance. The benefits of enhanced food safety and quality, as well as productivity improvements, are closely associated with technology use. Impediments that negatively affect technology use include software costs, problems with external financing, lack of cash flow for financing, and internal management problems. Even after accounting for the different benefits and costs associated with technology adoption, the numbers of advanced technologies that are adopted are found to be greater in larger plants, in foreign-controlled plants, in plants that engage in both primary and secondary processing, and in the dairy, fruit and vegetable and "other" food product industries.

    Description:

    The results of this pilot Knowledge Management Practices Survey indicate that most firms are managing some aspect of their knowledge. At present it appears that firms are more actively managing the transfer and sharing of knowledge within the firm and external knowledge that could directly bear on their markets. Knowledge management practices are seen as important tools in improving firms' competitive advantage and as a manner to unite workers in the goals of firms' strategic objectives. In fact, the majority of reasons found to be most important to the firms show a slant towards internalising knowledge and protecting the knowledge in place. Very few of the practices in use or the reasons or results of using the knowledge management practices indicated a strong willingness on the part of firms to share their knowledge with competitors or between work-sites.
