Saskatchewan Provincial Economic Accounts (February 2017 Edition)

The Saskatchewan Provincial Economic Accounts provide the principal estimates of aggregate economic activity in Saskatchewan. (GDP tables)

The Economic Review

The Economic Review is an annual publication highlighting major developments and trends in Saskatchewan’s economy. The Economic Review consists of two parts:

  • a write up, which highlights the status, events and milestones in the provincial economy; and
  • a compendium of tables and graphs, which presents information on a wide variety of topics.

The Economic Review has been in continuous publication since 1951. It is useful for providing both a contemporary and historical context for the province. 

The Census

Every five years Statistics Canada conducts a census. The results of the census are released in batches over the course of around two years. For each release of census data the Saskatchewan Bureau of Statistics prepares a report detailing relevant or interesting developments in the Province.

Quarterly Population Report

Every quarter Statistics Canada’s Demography Department releases the quarterly population number. The Demography Department collects data from numerous sources, including the census, to produce the official population number. This population number is the one used for calculating federal transfer payments, and drawing electoral boundaries. Every quarter on the day Demography Department releases the official population number the Saskatchewan Bureau of Statistics releases a detailed report outlining changes in the population and the source of those changes.

The Monthly Statistical Review

The Monthly Statistical Review is a compendium of tables and graphs which track changes in topics relevant to life in Saskatchewan. The Monthly Statistical review has been in continuous publication since 1974.

The Labour Force Survey

Every month Statistics Canada publishes the results of the Labour Force Survey (LFS). The LFS is the timeliest tool used in assessing the health of the economy. The data is highly valued by investors, businesses, and governments. Each month on the day the LFS is released the Saskatchewan Bureau of Statistics prepares a detailed report outlining some relevant statistics for the province of Saskatchewan.

Consumer Price Index

Every month Statistics Canada publishes the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The CPI tracks the changes in prices of consumer goods, such as food, gasoline and clothes. Each month on the day the CPI is released the Saskatchewan Bureau of Statistics prepares a detailed report outlining some of the relevant changes in the CPI for the Province of Saskatchewan.
