  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X201100111365
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In society today, many Canadians are concerned about the environment and the scarcity of resources. Consequently, many individuals and governments are seeking ways to reduce or alter energy and water consumption patterns. This article uses data from the 2007 Households and the Environment Survey to examine the association between income, education, ownership, age of dwelling and years lived at the dwelling and the use of low-volume toilets; low-flow showerheads; compact fluorescent light bulbs; programmable thermostats; and appliances bought to save energy or water.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800410750
    Geography: Canada
    Description: This study focuses on six environmental behaviours at the household level: use of reduced volume toilets; use of low-flow showerheads; use of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL); recycling; composting; and lowering temperatures. In 2006, almost half of Canadian households were very active across this range of environmental behaviours.

  • Articles and reports: 62F0014M1998012
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper examines the methods of adjustment for quality change made in the Canadian Consumer Price Index for the period 1989 to 1994. It finds that in most cases the current Canadian practice ensures that the replacement of one commodity by another, one variety of a commodity by another, or one outlet by another, has no impact on the overall index. The main exceptions to this result occur when replacing varieties of commodities that are purchased only occasionally, and a judgement is made that the quality ratio between the old and new variety is not the same as the ratio of their prices. In these cases there is an impact on the index, up or down, depending on whether the change in price reported is higher or lower than the change in quality. From the experience of the CPI in these six years there has been a correlation between the price ratio of a variety and its replacement and the index movement that derives from the judgement. The direction and size of the impact on the index depends largely on whether an item is replaced with a higher or lower priced item. For these reasons, the paper argues that more attention should be paid to ensuring that the item selection is more representative of current sales than has traditionally been the case.
