| This is the last edition of the Canada Year
Book. Statistics Canada says it will continue through other means to keep
Canadians informed about their social and economic life.
For 145 years, the Canada Year Book has chronicled in statistical form the demographic, social, political and economic changes affecting Canada and its people. The 2012 edition of the Canada Year carries on this tradition.
The almanac-style publication contains 31 chapters with tables, maps and easy-to-read articles. Each chapter covers issues and trends that influenced Canada, such as the aging of the population, housing prices and tuition costs. Other chapters examine developments in crime, health, the environment, the economy and much more.
A chapter on children explores the link between reading skills at the age of 15 and income at 25, as well as the continuing decline in smoking rates among teenagers and changes in international adoption rates.
An "International perspective" section provides charts comparing Canada and other Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) nations. For example, Canada's gross domestic product per capita was $US 38,914 in 2009, 11th among OECD countries.
Feature articles cover topics such as demographic changes in the population, as well as its ethnic makeup; an analysis of various sectors in the economy including international trade in goods and services, retail and wholesale trade, agriculture, transportation, energy, services, construction and manufacturing; an analysis of environmental issues; crime, health, the labour force, travel patterns and a look at how Canadians use technology to address life changes.
First published in 1867, the Canada Year Book has become the premier reference resource on the social and economic life of Canadians.
