  • Index and guides: 81-582-G2010001

    This handbook, based on the first edition, entitled Education Indicators in Canada: Handbook for the Report of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program 2007, was developed to update the general descriptions for the indicators of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP) as new sets of tables are released. It complements the tables and both share a common objective: to provide consistent and high-quality information on education in Canada. The up-to-date array of indicators helps support informed decision-making, policy formulation and program development throughout the country.

    This new companion Handbook is a reference document that gives readers a broad understanding of each indicator, rather than the very specific methodological descriptions that would be necessary to reproduce the indicator using the raw data.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 62F0072G

    The primary source of data used in post index construction are periodic retail-price and cost-of-living surveys conducted at foreign locations by the foreign service personnel stationed there. Statistics Canada analyses this survey data. In addition to a variety of price information gathered from retail outlets patronized by Canadian personnel at the post, data are also obtained regarding their spending patterns, along with information on the availability of any special local purchasing facilities, and the extent to which staff make direct importation of consumer goods from other countries. The general aim is for full-scale surveys to be carried out at about three-year intervals. However, specific studies may be undertaken more or less frequently than this, depending on the volatility of retail price conditions in each particular country, the instability of exchange rates and the extent to which close monitoring of changes in the local retail price situation being faced by Canadian personnel can be achieved through reference to other statistical indicators.
