Release Information

For Canada, Gross Domestic Product and Income and Expenditure Accounts measure the production of goods and services in the Canadian economy as well as the incomes arising from this production and expenditure on the production. GDP represents the unduplicated value of goods and services produced during the reference period and are available for domestic consumption, investment or export. The Income and Expenditure Accounts shows the distribution of income by six main institutional sectors, including households, NPISHs, general governments, non-financial corporations, financial corporations and non-residents. The accounts show the revenue to and the expenditures of the sector. 

Industrial classifications follow the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).

Target population - all households, NPISHs, general governments, non-financial corporations, financial corporations and non-residents operation in the economic territory of Canada.

Sources - Administrative files and derivations of other surveys and/or sources. 

Estimation - The source estimates GDP and Income and Expenditure Account using the most complete and high quality data sources available, establishing benchmark annual series. Sub-annual estimates are generated by applying movements as sub-annual surveys to the benchmark series.  

This data is subject to "ND" data points as the source is required to suppress any data that could violate the samples confidentiality. 

Data is subject to revision. The source usually reviews the prior three years of data with the update of the third quarter each year. 

As of 2018Q4, cannabis entered the scope of CSNA. Pertinent series were revised over their full history.

In the catalog, source-aggregated series list the NAICS codes of the components, rather than StatCan's aggregate code.
