|The Canadian productivity accounts - Data
2003 - Revised data
This new electronic publication, The Canadian Productivity Accounts-Data, is designed to provide information to analysts, researchers, students and the general public who wish to monitor, analyse and interpret annual trends in productivity and related measures in Canada.
The Canadian Productivity Accounts produce a variety of productivity measures and related variables for the business sector and its constituent sub-sectors and industries.
The Canadian Productivity Accounts were initiated in late 1940’s. They were the result of recommendations from an interdepartmental committee on productivity analysis, who reviewed the conceptual, and measurement problems involved and the available data sources in Canada.
Except for exchange rate series stored in Table 176-0064, the remaining series of this publication are available in CANSIM tables 383-0008, 383-0013, 383-0014 and 383-0015. Industry data available in the last three tables begin in 1997; they will be made available back to 1961 later this year. U.S. data are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Productivity and Costs, published in NEWS.
