The Canadian Productivity Review

The Canadian Productivity Review is a series of applied studies that address issues involving the measurement, explanation, and improvement of productivity. Themes covered in the review include, but are not limited to, economic performance, capital formation, labour, prices, environment, trade, and efficiency at both national and provincial levels. The Review publishes empirical research, at different levels of aggregation, based on growth accounting, econometrics, index numbers and mathematical programming. The empirical research illustrates the application of theory and techniques to relevant public policy issues.

All papers in The Canadian Productivity Review series go through institutional and peer review to ensure that they conform to Statistics Canada’s mandate as a government statistical agency and adhere to generally accepted standards of good professional practice.

The papers in the series often include results derived from multivariate analysis or other statistical techniques. It should be recognized that the results of these analyses are subject to uncertainty in the reported estimates.

The level of uncertainty will depend on several factors: the nature of the functional form used in the multivariate analysis; the type of econometric technique employed; the appropriateness of the statistical assumptions embedded in the model or technique; the comprehensiveness of the variables included in the analysis; and the accuracy of the data that are utilized. The peer group review process is meant to ensure that the papers in the series have followed accepted standards to minimize problems in each of these areas.
