    Description:

    This Economic Insights article highlights notable changes in the pace and composition of industrial research and development (R&D) spending in Canada during the 2000-to-2013 period. The analysis is based on historical time series data that conclude with the publication of estimates for reference year 2013. New data on industrial R&D will be released in the coming months. These new survey results begin with estimates for reference year 2014 and reflect conceptual and methodological changes designed to enhance the scope and relevance of the program. Following the introduction of these changes, a study on the break in the time series will be conducted later in 2017. his article highlights trends in industrial R&D spending in advance of the upcoming release of the new data. The analysis underscores the extent to which support for higher R&D spending in more recent years has come from resource-based companies.

    Description:

    This paper asks whether research and development (R&D) drives the level of competitiveness required to successfully enter export markets and whether, in turn, participation in export markets increases R&D expenditures. Canadian non-exporters that subsequently entered export markets in the first decade of the 2000s are found to be not only larger and more productive, as has been reported for previous decades, but also more likely to have invested in R&D. Both extramural R&D expenditures (purchased from domestic and foreign suppliers) and intramural R&D expenditures (performed in-house) increase the ability of firms to penetrate export markets. Exporting also has a significant impact on subsequent R&D expenditures; exporters are more likely to start investing in R&D. Firms that began exporting increased the intensity of extramural R&D expenditures in the year in which exporting occurred.

    Description:

    The Canadian Economy in Transition is a series of new analytical reports that investigate the dynamics of industrial change in the Canadian economy. Many of these studies focus on the growth and development of industries that are often described as vanguards of the new economy, such as information and communications technology industries and science-based industries (heavy investors in research and development and human capital). Other studies examine the role that knowledge workers play in Canada's industrial evolution. In addition, future studies will investigate productivity performance in different industrial sectors.

    This new series brings together a coherent set of research reports that provide users with a wide variety of empirical perspectives on the economy's changing industrial structure. These perspectives include the dynamics of productivity, profitability, employment, output, investment, occupational structure and industrial geography.

    Description:

    The Economic Analysis Research Paper Series provides the circulation of research conducted by the staff of National Accounts and Analytical Studies, visiting fellows and academic associates. The research paper series is meant to stimulate discussion on a range of topics including the impact of the new economy; productivity issues; firm profitability; technology usage; the effect of financing on firm growth; depreciation functions; the use of satellite accounts; savings rates; leasing; firm dynamics; hedonic estimations; diversification patterns; investment patterns; the differences in the performance of small and large, or domestic and multinational firms; and purchasing power parity estimates. Readers of the series are encouraged to contact the authors with comments, criticisms and suggestions.

    The primary distribution medium for the papers is the Internet. These papers can be downloaded from the Internet at www.statcan.gc.ca for free. Papers in the series are distributed to Statistics Canada Regional Offices and provincial statistical focal points.

    All papers in the Economic Analysis Series go through institutional and peer review to ensure that they conform to Statistics Canada's mandate as a government statistical agency and adhere to generally accepted standards of good professional practice.

    The papers in the series often include results derived from multivariate analysis or other statistical techniques. It should be recognized that the results of these analyses are subject to uncertainty in the reported estimates.

    The level of uncertainty will depend on several factors: the nature of the functional form used in the multivariate analysis; the type of econometric technique employed; the appropriateness of the statistical assumptions embedded in the model or technique; the comprehensiveness of the variables included in the analysis; and the accuracy of the data that are utilized. The peer group review process is meant to ensure that the papers in the series have followed accepted standards to minimize problems in each of these areas.

    Description:

    The results of this pilot Knowledge Management Practices Survey indicate that most firms are managing some aspect of their knowledge. At present it appears that firms are more actively managing the transfer and sharing of knowledge within the firm and external knowledge that could directly bear on their markets. Knowledge management practices are seen as important tools in improving firms' competitive advantage and as a manner to unite workers in the goals of firms' strategic objectives. In fact, the majority of reasons found to be most important to the firms show a slant towards internalising knowledge and protecting the knowledge in place. Very few of the practices in use or the reasons or results of using the knowledge management practices indicated a strong willingness on the part of firms to share their knowledge with competitors or between work-sites.

    Description:

    As of 1997, Canadian biotech industry was made of 282 core firms. Of these, 214 were small firms with less than 50 employees, 37 were medium firms with 51 to 150 employees, and 31 were large firms with over 150 employees. They earned $813 million from biotech products sales, $311 million of which were from exports. They employed 9,000 people in biotech related activities and had 8,924 products at all stages of development. Private placements, venture capital and labour sponsored funds were these firms main sources of financing capital. Access to capital was the most serious obstacle faced by the biotech firms in 1997. Marketing and distribution were their major reasons for entertaining strategic alliances, while universities were their most preferred R&D partners.

    Description:

    In the spring of 1999, the Science, Innovation and Electronic Information Division of Statistics Canada (SIEID) decided to review the methods it uses to estimate Higher Education R&D Expenditures (HERD) and Health Gross Expenditures on R&D (Health GERD). The manner in which research is performed and funded in Canadian universities and research hospitals has evolved in recent years, and current methodologies may not take these changes into account. By improving HERD, the health GERD estimates will also benefit. It may be possible to improve them yet again by building upon recent work at Statistics Canada on biotechnology R&D in Canadian Industry.

    In September 1999, an initial study and its recommendations generated a positive reaction from a group of professionals in the university and health research fields. SIEID then created a Working Group and hired a facilitator to examine current estimation methods, to recommend revisions where appropriate, and to produce a framework for an improved program in this area. This document is the final report written by the facilitator, Mireille Brochu.
