Statistics Canada got its open data report card last week. And, it contains very good news.
Open Data Watch ranked Canada 8th among 173 national statistical offices.
This is the first year that the organization, based in Washington, D.C., has included Canada in its annual report. The goal of Open Data Watch is to ensure that data are accessible to all.
The StatCan Blog begins a new feature: a guest post on research at Statistics Canada will be published every quarter. Our first post is from Beiling Yan, senior analyst in the Economic Analysis Division, Statistics Canada.
On January 27, 2017, Statistics Canada released economic data on Canadian cities. Canadians now have access to data on gross domestic product (GDP) for 33 census metropolitan areas (CMAs), as well as 9 non-CMA regions within the country. Going forward, the agency plans on releasing these data each year.
