Balancing confidentiality protection and user needs
Statistics Canada has been exploring new methods to balance the need for more high-quality data outputs with the protection of confidential information in the release of economic data estimates.
Canadians have a lot of questions about housing. How much does it cost to purchase a new condominium? How would the price compare between Vancouver and Toronto? In response to growing demand for more detailed housing data, Statistics Canada has released new data: the Experimental New Condominium Apartment Price Index (NCAPI). First released on February 15, 2019, the NCAPI opens the door to a better understanding of the factors that affect condominium prices.
