Annual Survey of Service Industries: Travel Arrangement Services (TRAV)
Summary of changes
Activity on this program started: 1982
Reference years 2012 and 2013 have been revised to reflect the important improvements Statistics Canada made to its methods and processes used to compile its annual economic statistics.
Statistics Canada launched the Integrated Business Statistics Program (IBSP) to provide a more efficient model for producing economic statistics. The main objective was to enhance the economic statistics program so that it remains as robust and flexible as possible while reducing the burden on business respondents. The program changes ensure that Statistics Canada will continue to produce a consistent and coherent set of economic statistics. As well, data users and researchers can more easily combine economic data with information from other sources to undertake their analyses. These changes took effect when data for the reference year 2013 were released.
