Note(s):
A new imputation system was implemented for reference year 2008. This imputation system incorporated information on firm structure obtained from Statistics Canada’s Business Register for all records which were obtained through administrative sources. This change does not impact national totals, but had the effect of increasing the number of units reporting R&D within provinces. Caution should be used when making any comparison of counts of provincial firm with R&D activities.
