    Description:

    In 2021, Canada recorded its highest annual increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) since 1991, as global supply-chains felt the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, transportation and supply disruptions, and rebounding energy prices – all alongside the effects of the climate crisis.

    This analysis uses price data from the Industrial Product Price Index (IPPI), the Wholesale Services Price Index (WSPI), the Retail Services Price Index (RSPI), and the CPI to detail how manufacturers price movement works it way through the supply-chain to ultimately inform the price consumers pay for beef.

    Description:

    The Canadian Consumer Price Index (CPI) accounts for the sale of used vehicles by including a net expenditure weight for used vehicles in the index for the purchase of passenger vehicles. However, price changes for new cars were used as a proxy for used cars to ensure price change for this product was still covered to the best extent possible. The research paper outlines the proposed plan for introducing used vehicle prices, including data and methods. With the introduction of the 2021 CPI basket, a new approach for measuring price change in used vehicles is recommended to replace the previous method of measuring used vehicles price change by proxy.

    Description:

    There has been a persistent curiosity about the predictability of consumer price inflation by looking at the pass-through effect of prices from earlier stages of production. The theory is that the prices of consumer items, particularly goods, respond to cost pressures from the inputs to production. This paper examines in particular a limited portion of the value chain, namely the predictive power of producer prices of goods as measured by the Industrial Product Price Index (IPPI) on consumer prices, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

    Description:

    Decisions by economic agents, such as firms and consumers, depend on their views about inflation. Consumers’ views of inflation, are systematically higher than inflation measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), and more so for certain demographic groups. While measurement factors can explain part of this gap, behavioral factors appear to play a larger role. This article examines these factors to explain the gap between CPI’s inflation and inflation perceptions in Canada.

    Description:

    Using various sources of expenditure data, Statistics Canada, in partnership with the Bank of Canada, has estimated monthly adjusted consumer expenditure weights that reflect shifts in consumption patterns as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. The Adjusted price index has been updated to incorporate the 2020 basket weights and is now based on a Similarity-linked Fisher price index formula. The expenditure data cover all goods and services in the Consumer Price Index (CPI), and provide snapshot estimates of expenditure weights for June, July, August and September 2021. These estimates can provide insight into the impact of COVID-19 on the headline CPI.

    The study aims to identify the key nodes and flows in the beef supply chain, and present statistics to provide a better understanding of Canada's beef supply chain. This report is accompanied by a dashboard, which provides data visualizations for the beef supply chain.

    The study highlights the overall framework of beef supply chains in Canada using various Statistic Canada data sources to identify entities involved in the commodity's supply chain including production, processing, distribution, consumption, retail sales, and pricing; as well as international and interprovincial trade that occurs at various points in the supply chain. In addition to this, the financial structure of beef farms and the level of employment in the industry are also examined in the study.
