Unemployment Rates and 3 Month Moving Average


A professor here is looking for monthly unemployment rates for census metropolitan areas back to 1990 that do not say "3 -month moving average" on the table ( for example CANSIM Table 2820090)." He just wants the monthly rates. Are any unemployment rates available without the "3-month moving average" at the census metropolitan area level and if not is there a reason why not? The professor is looking for statistics for Thunder Bay.


We received the following answer from the author division in response to your question below:

"Sorry but no the CMA data is not available monthly due to the sample size. The data would not be as reliable."
