Additional information

Definitions, data sources and methods: survey number 2612.

Survey of Employment, Payrolls and Hours (SEPH) seasonally adjusted estimates at the national, provincial and territorial level are published each month in The Daily.

The SEPH is produced by a combination of a census of approximately one million payroll deductions provided by the Canada Revenue Agency, and the Business Payrolls Survey, which collects data from a sample of 15,000 establishments. Estimates of average weekly earnings and hours worked are based on a sample and are therefore subject to sampling variability. Payroll employment estimates are based on a census of administrative data and are not subject to sampling variability.

For more information on the sampling variability of estimates, see the Guide to the Survey of Employment, Payrolls and Hours (72-203-G).
