Quarterly Tax Revenues data for Canada


A student who has been accessing CANSIM tables has an question regarding the basis of table 380-0080. We were able to find this table which fit his initial needs, but now he’s wondering whether it really is cash-based or accrual?


I believe our subject matter division already answered this question to the researcher in their previous response, please see below for the part relative to this most recent question.

“A large portion of the data in 380-0080 is cash based, however the GDP components, including taxes on products and taxes on factors of production, are measured on an accrual basis.”
