“What gets measured gets done.”

“Can’t manage what you don’t measure.”

“How you measure determines your values.“

CANCEA utilizes its “linked-path” database – that ties hundreds of disparate (and typically cross-sectional) data sources back to the individual objects that generated them (e.g., households), and secures the connection of these data over time – to generate robust indicators. Such metrics look deeper than aggregate measures – which are often misleading or hide pressures felt unequally across our socio-economic system – and get to the heart of specific issues.

Public indicators include:

  • The Shelter Consumption Affordability Ratio index: used to evaluate housing affordability by measuring the ability of households to “make ends meet” when trying to house themselves.
  • The Needs Consumption Affordability Ratio index: used to evaluate overall affordability and sustainability by measuring the ability of households to “make ends meet”
  • The Ontario Business Prosperity Index (BPI): looks beyond GDP and instead considers the process of wealth generation from business production and investment activities.

What we can do for you:

We can develop custom Canadian socio-economic indicators measuring what is important to you. Please contact us connect@CANCEA.ca for more information.
