Operating profit margin of establishments

Definition

Operating profit margin refers to the margin, i.e. the difference, between operating revenues and operating expenses. This margin, or difference, is expressed using units of measure such as percentage or Canadian dollars.

Establishment refers to the level at which accounting data required to measure production is available (principal inputs, revenues, salaries and wages). The establishment, as a statistical unit, is defined as the most homogeneous unit of production for which the business maintains accounting records from which it is possible to assemble all the data elements required to compile the full structure of the gross value of production (total sales or shipments, and inventories), the cost of materials and services, and labour and capital used in production.
