  • Table: 63-541-X
    Description:

    The Retail Commodity Survey for 1989, containing broadly based data on the patterns of consumer demand in Canada, is the most comprehensive study completed since 1974. It provides benchmark data on the type of goods Canadians buy, and allows analysis of change in buying habits and retailing patterns. The survey was designed in consultation with members of the retail business community. It reflects more detailed information than is normally available from the accounting records of Canadian retailers. It covers approximately 200 commodity groupings sold by 16 types of retail outlets, in all the provinces and the territories. Although the proportion of expenditures on major retail commodities did not change appreciably between 1974 and 1989, the survey reflects a number of shifts in consumer preferences. For example, food sales represented about the same proportion of retail sales as in 1974, but poultry was a much more significant component of the food basket at the expense of other meat products. Other changes confirmed by the survey are the shifts in buying habits away from general merchandise stores, including department, variety and general stores, towards specialty retailers.
