Note: Based on approved main estimates funding. Total spending includes respendable cost-recovery revenues. Net spending is equivalent to total corporate expenditures less expenditures related to cost-recovery programs.

As shown in Figure 2, total and net spending rose in 2010/2011; peaked in 2011/2012 when the 2011 Census of Population, the National Household Survey, and the 2011 Census of Agriculture were conducted; and dropped sharply in 2012/2013 as these activities began to wind down. This pattern is typical for the Agency, a result of the census program cycle. Figure 2 also shows that spending, net of cost recovery and the censuses, reduces significantly over the seven-year period. The increase in spending, net of cost recovery, and the censuses in 2012/2013, was mostly because of the payout for the severance pay for the collective agreements, as well as workforce adjustment costs.
