20 Integration in economic surveys Statistics Canada previously had 58 business surveys in the Unified Entreprise Survey (UES) Manufacturing, distributive trades, services Good practices : Harmonization of content across economic surveys aligned to SNA needs Use of tax information Use of generalized systems for data processing Now going further with the new Integrated Business Statistics Program (IBSP)

21 Objectives of the IBSP Simplify and modernize processes Improve timeliness Reduce response burden Realize efficiencies Reduce development and maintenance costs

22 Features of the IBSP Implemented in phases across all survey programs: annual and sub annual Use of business register as central frame Multi-modal collection emphasizing electronic data reporting, active collection management Modular questionnaires with harmonized content Further integration of tax data as source for financial information Common approaches to survey estimation and processing, meta-data driven

23 PHASE 1 ProgramReference Year Existing UES surveys (manufacturing, distributive trades and services) 2013 Capital Expenditure surveys (actual, preliminary and intentions) – 2 survey periods 2013 PHASE 2 Energy surveys (13 annual, 2 quarterly and 7 monthly) 2014 Transportation surveys (Annual and quarterly Trucking Financial and Passenger Bus) 2014 RDCI (Research & Development in Canadian Industries) 2014 PHASE 3 Agriculture surveys2015 IOFD program (Enterprise Financial Statistics made up of 3 surveys - Quarterly Survey of Financial Statements, Annual Financial and Taxation Statistics and Survey of Suppliers of Business Financing) 2015 Integrating Surveys - Schedule

24 SNA input to survey programs Develop harmonized content that meets essential SNA requirements Principal statistics and characteristic detail Analysis and feedback on data quality Collaborative work on program development Strategy for evaluating time series breaks due to statistical effects Improve SNA sector codes on BR Recent organizational changes facilitate collaboration, process flows mobility of staff

25 Canadian SNA challenges Managing scope of comprehensive revisions across complex, integrated system Lack of flexibility due to fiscal requirements Maintaining time series continuity across the dimensions of the program Rethinking integration of historical estimates and revision policy Documentation and communicating changes to users Needed investments to maintain relevance (environmental accounts, G20 data gaps)
