Abstract

Selected Forestry Statistics Canada 1992 relates to a series of tables on commodity production, shipments and trade, principal and employment statistics by the industry sector, as well as selling price indexes, financial statistics, and economic indicators. Some transportation, construction, and international data complete the picture.

Data on Canadian forest resources and management activities are no longer in Selectecd Forestry Statistics. This information is now contained in the Compendium of Canadian Forestry Statistics, National Forestry Database. The publication contains the most up-to-date import and export data (spring 1993).

Over 130 tables of forest economic data at the national and provincial levels are included in the report. Data have been extracted from approximately 55 different publications. A number of charts have been included to help the reader visualize the information. In addition, the last section of this publication describes the main forestry and economic terms used in the tables.

To increase the precision and facilitate the retrieval of time series data, CANSIM (a computerized data bank of Statistics Canada) was used wherever possible. The tables of commodity data were retrieved from computer tapes produced by Statistics Canada's International Trade Division and the world statistics were retrieved from a computer tape produced by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Information given at the beginning of the relevant sections highlights recent changes.
