1. Capital Expenditure Survey, Private and Public Investment in Canada, Intentions, Table 1, Summary by sector.

2. The public and private sectors are defined differently in the CSNA, where government includes not only public administration as defined in NAICS, but also other elements primarily in the health and education sectors.

3. A part of the sofware number is measured directly by the Capital Expenditure Survey, while the rest is estimated in the CSNA. Income and Expenditure Accounts Division provides preliminary estimates of total software to the Capital Expenditure Survey due to timing constraints. The number that appears as software adjustment is simply the difference between the final and preliminary estimates of software.

4. GDP measures current production; as such all production from previous periods must be excluded. In the case of machinery and equipment, spending on scrap and salvage, used motor vehicles and used aircraft are removed.

5. Net additions correspond to projects that were missed by the Capital Expenditure Survey. Other adjustments are made to remove vehicles used for personal use and include the business use of personal vehicles. Also adjustments are made because after confrontation with the Input-Output Tables, an adjustment is made for the underestimation of certain commodities such as agricultural machinery and motor vehicles.
