GDP for Agricultural Industries

QuestionA student is looking for data similar to that found in CANSIM 379-0028 for industries under NAICS code 11 (Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting) but at greater detail. The above table goes to 3 and sometimes 4-digit NAICS codes, but she's wondering if even more detail is available somewhere. Any suggestions?

Answer"The data found in CANSIM table 379-0028 is not available at the national level. With that said, it is possible to calculate a national percentage share by multiplying the provincial shares found in CANSIM table 379-0028 by the provincial GDP found in CANSIM table 384-0037 and deriving a national share by adding together all the provincial values and dividing by the GDP for Canada."
