Today, Statistics Canada unveils a new look for The Daily.
It is not the first makeover in the 73-year history of StatCan's official release publication, but it is among the most dramatic.
The new Daily looks a lot more like a product of the mobile age—more dynamic, easier to understand and simpler to use.
by Wayne R. Smith, Chief Statistician of Canada
I am frequently asked for Statistics Canada’s assessment of the data quality from the voluntary 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) that replaced the mandatory long-form census.
Just how much do Canadians know about their finances? What are the immunization rates among children in Canada? How many Canadians use alcohol and tobacco? Every year, StatCan undertakes a number of special surveys, covering a wide range of issues relevant to Canadian society and its economy.
