NOTE: The personal income and productivity tables are based on population, personal income, output, capital stock, employment, and other data produced by Statistics Canada (Canadian data), BEA & BLS (US data) and reflect any deficiencies these data may have. Consequently, all income and productivity trends in sectors where data problems are known to be severe should be interpreted with caution.
