Mark Uhrbach - Program Manager, Digital Metrics, Investment, Science and Technology Division
Amanda Sinclair - Unit Head, Satellite Accounts and Special Studies, National Economic Accounts Division
The increasing digitalization of the Canadian economy has many aspects that are being considered at Statistics Canada. The digitalization of the economy presents new challenges to the statistical system but also presents new opportunities for data collection and the implementation of statistical methods that were not previously possible. Statistics Canada is currently working towards identifying data gaps that have emerged and finding solutions to meet these data gaps through both traditional survey methods and innovative new solutions. This webinar will address some of these challenges that exist in this new era of measurement and propose some of the steps the organization is taking toward meeting them.
