The Construction Production Index is a business cycle indicator showing the output and activity of construction. It measures changes in the volume of output at close and regular intervals. It provides a measure of the volume trend in value added at basic prices over a given reference period. Value added at basic prices can be calculated from turnover (excluding VAT and other similar deductible taxes directly linked to turnover), plus capitalized production, plus other operating income plus or minus the changes in stocks, minus the purchases of goods and services, minus taxes on products which are linked to turnover but not deductible plus any subsidies on products received. This is the percentage change compared with the previous month.
Wholesale Sales m/m
This survey presents estimates of monthly sales levels for wholesale merchants in Canada, each province and territory. This survey provides information on the performance of the wholesale trade sector and is an important indicator of the health of the Canadian economy. Wholesale sales in real terms are calculated by deflating current dollar values using import and industry product price indexes. As many of the goods sold by wholesalers are imported, fluctuations in the value of the Canadian dollar can have an important influence on the prices of goods bought and sold by wholesalers. This is the percentage change compared with the the previous month.
