CABE Conference: The Future of Data including Transaction based Data

This event has been postponed to a later date. Please watch your email newsletters for updates.


Traditional statistics-gathering methods are no longer sufficient to accurately measure Canada’s economic and societal changes. That is why Statistics Canada’s focus has shifted toward leveraging administrative data, using advanced technologies and developing new, cost-effective methods to link and integrate data from a variety of sources. Greg Peterson will discuss the future changes in Statistics Canada’s data collection.
