Growth Ranking

Compares an indicator's current growth performance to the past 10 years of growth, and to other provinces. It signals whether the economy is in a strong or moderate growth phase.

Show Methodology

To create the % score, the last 10 years of data were compiled for each metric, with year-over-year growth rates calculated for each period. The % score displays how this period’s growth rate compares to the growth rates of the last 10 years. Example: -90% means that growth rates are in the -90th percentile compared to rates for the last 10 years.

Interprovincial rank measures how the current growth rate scores against the rates observed in other provinces. Example: If Alberta’s current growth rate is the highest in the country, it will be shown as "1st".
