The purpose of this section is to explain the main revisions to previously published HRM estimates.

As part of the usual revision cycle, estimates for jobs, hours worked, and compensation have been revised for reference year 2011. These revisions bring the data into line with benchmark source data from the Canadian Productivity Accounts (CPA) published in May 2012.

Additional revisions resulted from incorporating new data from the Survey of Employment, Payrolls and Hours, which is used in the HRM to remove the non-tourism portions of tourism industries.Note 1

These changes resulted in minor revisions to the number of jobs, number of hours worked, and total compensation for the tourism sector.


  1. In March 2013, SEPH data for 1991 to 2012 were revised and put on the new North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) 2012. These revisions will be incorporated in the next update of the HRM. See Appendix C.4 and Appendix D: Methodology for more information on how SEPH is used in the HRM.
