  Note to readers

The informatics professional services price indexes (IPSPI) are annual surveys that collect financial, wage and contractor fee information to measure price movements in the informatics professional services.

With each release, data for the previous year may have been revised. Updated or new administrative and survey data are incorporated and result in statistical revisions.

Data are available at the Canada level only. The indexes are not seasonally adjusted.

The IPSPI are being redesigned for implementation in 2017.
