Gross domestic product by industry
The following standard symbols are used in Statistics Canada publications:
With this release the monthly GDP by industry estimates have been revised back to January 2003. Revisions arise from updates to benchmark data, projectors and seasonal adjustment. January to June: back to previous year; July: back to January of fifth previous year; August to December: back to January of current year. Occasionally, there are historical revisions due to conceptual, methodological and classification changes - the most recent with the July 2002 GDP release.
In September 2002 (Reference Month: July 2002), the monthly GDP by industry
program introduced the first stage of conversion to a Chain Fisher formula,
by adopting annual chained Input-Output benchmarks in its calculation
of real GDP for 1997 to 2000. However, from January 2001 onwards, the
data are 2000 Laspeyres-based estimates. The monthly GDP results are
expressed in chained (1997) dollars. This conversion brings the monthly
GDP by industry
estimates more in line with the quarterly expenditure-based GDP data,
chained quarterly. For more information, see Chain
Fisher Volume Index page on our website.
All current and historical statistics on Gross Domestic Product (Table Nos. 3790017-3790022), as well as many other series are available to the public from Statistics Canada's computerized data bank CANSIM (Canadian Socio-Economic Information Management System) via terminal, on computer printouts, or in machine readable form.
