Payment Data


I have a student who is looking for data related to the use and prices of payment systems such as cash, debit, and credit cards. I couldn't find it in CANSIM do you know where, or if this is available?

The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada has considerable amount of payment data: <http://www.fcac-acfc.gc.ca/Eng/Pages/home-accueil.aspx>

Infostats also responded:

“Data from the Canadian Internet Use Survey on electronic orders by type of payment is available on CANSIM table 358-0158 <http://www5.statcan.gc.ca/cansim/pick-choisir?lang=eng&p2=33&id=3580158>

Unfortunately, there is no additional data related to the use and prices of different payments system available as a standard product on our website. The student may be able to obtain more information on this subject through a custom order.

S/he can send us an e-mail with his/her detailed data requirements (variables, time frame, geography, etc.) as well as his/her complete contact information and we will forward his/her request to our Advisory Services. An agent will contact him/her back to inform him/her if the data s/he is seeking is available and to provide him/her with a free time and cost estimate, would any charges apply.”
