The performance indicator "Percentage of key users (federal departments, provinces and territories, international organizations and others) satisfied with the data" will not be reported in the 2013/2014 Departmental Performance Report. The indicator applies to Program 1: Economic and Environmental Statistics and its sub-programs; Program 2: Socio-economic Statistics and its sub-programs; and Program 3: Censuses. This is a new indicator still under development. Qualitative information on client satisfaction is, however, available in the program evaluations. These evaluations Footnote i, conducted under the Treasury Board Policy on Evaluations, are posted on the Statistics Canada website.
The performance indicator "Percentage of intended key users (federal departments, provinces and territories, international organizations and others) using the data regularly" will not be reported in the 2013/2014 Departmental Performance Report for Program 3: Censuses or for sub-program 3.1 Census of Population. This new indicator will be assessed once every five years and is scheduled to be reported in the 2014/2015 Departmental Performance Report.
