Data sources and methodology


This survey is a census with a cross-sectional design.

Data sources

Responding to this survey is voluntary.

Data are collected directly from survey respondents.

This is a mail-out, mail-back survey with telephone follow-up. The universe is based on the latest Annual Survey of Manufactures (SDDS ID 2103) and current information available.


For non-response: current period last year divided by previous period last year multiplied by previous period this year equals current period this year.

Quality evaluation

It is possible to have some under-coverage due to the potential exclusion of small establishments and establishments identified to non-manufacturing, both of which may not have been identified as producers of these commodities.

Disclosure control

Statistics Canada is prohibited by law from releasing any information it collects that could identify any person, business, or organization, unless consent has been given by the respondent or as permitted by the Statistics Act. Various confidentiality rules are applied to all data that are released or published to prevent the publication or disclosure of any information deemed confidential. If necessary, data are suppressed to prevent direct or residual disclosure of identifiable data.
