Farm Financial Statistics


A researcher is looking for Farm Financial Statistics from the Census of Agriculture at the sub-watershed level around Lake Simcoe.We have found information at the Consolidated Census Subdivision (CCS) level via the Census of Agriculture website, which provides some granularity in the area but it's not a great match for the researcher's needs.

What are the options for getting Farm Financial Statistics that more closely matches the desired geography? If we sent a boundary file to StatCan, could we have a custom tab made? Or would we have to use the PCCF? Or something else entirely?


I confirmed with the author division that unfortunately this request would not be feasible because we do not release financial statistics at the watershed level. The database we use for these types of projects is not designed for these type of variables -- it is developed for "production" variables only.
