CANSIM updated data structure

CANSIM database in Macrobond restructured to mirror the structure of the source

The CANSIM database has been available in the application since April 2016. During that time we worked on reorganizing the database to present the data as it is structured by the source. The project is now complete.

In the images below you’ll see that the data is structured using the same categories and subcategories. We have also included the data table reference number, which should make searching for a particular table very efficient.

Remember that the slider tool is helpful if you want to view different levels of granularity for a selected data category. That way you can choose to quickly scan an overview of the data, and easily drill down if you find a sub-category that interests you.

If you have any questions feel free to contact you account manager or reach us here.
