Food Disappearance Quarterly Statistics


I have a researcher who is looking for quarterly statistics on Food disappearance in Canada. The only available data we have been able to locate is annual (such as the tables linked to from this survey page: <>). There are published articles, however, that do use quarterly Canadian data. One of them is:

Reynolds, A. and E. Goddard. 1991. “Structural Change in Canadian Meat Demand.” Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics 39(2):211–222.

Unfortunately, there is no specific citation of their data source other than “Meat disappearance data are obtained from Agriculture Canada and Statistics Canada.”

Is there any way of obtaining quarterly numbers?


Unfortunately, the data is not available quarterly. The only data we can provide are annual data as seen in CANSIM table 002-0010.
