    Description:

    This article describes and quantifies the growth of Canada's dynamic software and computer services industry in the 1990s. Results show that the industry's ouput has doubled in the 1990s, and that its workforce's size and remuneration levels also grew rapidly. The article explores the industry's three largest growth areas (professional services, data processing services and software products development) and offers insights into why these areas are growing. Also examined are international policy developments affecting the industry, including the Voorburg Group and recent trade agreements. The article also discusses the new North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) and how it will improve statistical measurements of this, and other, service industries.

    Description:

    The logistics services industry, an emerging component of the services sector, strives to ensure an efficient flow of products through the supply chain. Logistics services have grown in importance with deregulation, technological change, and the greater integration of production and distribution across national boundaries. This article looks at how these factors affected the evolution of logistics services. It also discusses the challenges associated with statistically measuring the emerging logistics services industry.

    Description:

    This paper demonstrates the extent to which jobs are simultaneously created and eliminated in service industries. This job reallocation tends to be higher in knowledge- and information-intensive industries such as business services. However, job reallocation patterns are not necessarily similar across all dynamic industries. This is largely because of differences between various industries': markets; regulatory environments; and abilities to absorb displaced workers into the production of new goods and services. The study further illustrates that high job reallocation causes significant movement of workers between firms and industries, and that this has important implications for training and knowledge flows in the economy.

    Description:

    Leasing, rather than buying, is increasingly becoming an attractive option for both consumers and businesses in today's economy. This article examines recent leasing services activities in Canada by focusing on two major industry groups: automobile and truck rental and leasing services. Also analyzed are each industry group's structure, characteristics and performance, with an emphasis on the 1991-95 period. In some instances, attention is focused on sub-industries within each broad industry group.

    The purpose of this paper is twofold: to examine the components of growth in the software development and computer service industry; and to juxtapose this against developments in international policy circles affecting both this industry and service industries in general. Part I offers a description of the major components of this industry with respect to classification. Part II examines recent trends at the industry and subsector level, showing how this industry has evolved through the 1990s.

    Workers who use computers earn more than those who do not. Is this a productivity effect or merely selection (that is, workers selected to use computers are more productive to begin with). After controlling for selection, the average worker enjoys a wage premium of 3.8% upon adopting a computer. This premium, however, obscures important differences by education and occupation. Long-run returns to computer use are over 5% for most workers. Differences between short-run and long-run returns suggest that workers may share training costs through sacrificed wages.

    The Canadian economy is characterized by the size of the service sector. Elsewhere, the research and development (R&D) activity contributes to the growth of the economy. Paradoxically, R&D is sometime considered as an activity performed by the manufacturing sector. This article sheds light on the importance of efforts dedicated to R&D in the business services sector.

    Description:

    This article examines household spending on entertainment services in 2001, focussing on differences in spending by household type and income. Entertainment services industries rely on spending by various types of households. Knowledge about the characteristics of consumers and their spending patterns enables entertainment service providers to market their products to meet the needs of the current market, and to develop programs to attract new consumers.

    Previous research looking at differences in spending on entertainment services has shown that consumer preferences vary across socio-economic factors such as income, household type and geographical region. Similar to entertainment spending patterns in 1997, there was evidence that Canadians continued to 'cocoon' in 2001, spending more on entertainment inside the home and less outside the home.

    Spending on entertainment services also varied by level of household income. It is not surprising that both the percentage of households that spent on entertainment and the average amount spent increased with income. Households in the highest income quintile accounted for a disproportionate share of the consumer market for entertainment services in 2001.

    The presence of children in the household made a real difference in spending patterns. Households with children represented the highest percentage of reporting households in seven of the eight categories of entertainment spending and, on average, they spent the most in six of the eight categories.

    Description:

    The need for Information Technology (IT) support has never been greater than it is today. Businesses, institutions, government and individuals all rely heavily on IT networks to convey information, process data, and provide or access services.

    This paper describes how a leading IT industry, including computer systems design and related services, has responded to the mounting demand for IT services in Canada. Structural differences between small and large system design firms are explored and data describing industry growth rates, export markets, and employment characteristics are examined.

    Description:

    Services constitute the single most important industry in Canada's economy, with 68% of total gross domestic product, 75% of employment and 53% of consumer spending. However, this industry is not widely perceived as being Canada's spearhead of research and development (R&D), a role more traditionally assigned to the manufacturing sector. Still, services are becoming an increasingly important force in R&D, and this is why we should reconsider the true role played by R&D in the service sector. This article, in fact, sets out to quantify R&D activities within the service sector.

    Here are some highlights of this exploratory study:

    - In 2002, the commercial service sector was responsible for 28.5% of all R&D expenditures for the economy as a whole.

    - In 2000, 36.6% of all personnel assigned full time to R&D worked in the commercial service sector.

    - Quantification of the amounts spent on R&D from within the service sector does not necessarily correspond to traditional industrial classifications. For example, R&D is primarily performed in such sectors as biotechnology, software, telecommunications, the environment and logistics, which are not included in the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) classification scheme.

    - Several service sector activities are very labour intensive and require highly skilled R&D workers. For example, of all employees performing R&D in the field of biotechnology, 23% hold doctorates or master's degrees.

    Description:

    Even though all of the campgrounds and outfitters combined were self-categorized as midscale accommodations, 87% of the campgrounds catered to an economy/midscale market while around 84% of the outfitters were midscale/upscale. Only outfitters derived more revenue from packaged vacations than from guest units. Americans made up the greatest number of those visiting Canada's hunting and fishing camps while campgrounds generated most of their business from Canadian travellers. Canada's pristine wilderness draws foreign travellers who want to experience world-class hunting and fishing expeditions.
