Given the rapidly evolving economic situation, Statistics Canada is providing an advance estimate of sales in the wholesale sector for the month of September. The advance results for September indicate that wholesale sales rose 0.4%.
This estimate was calculated based on a weighted response rate of 58.5%. The average final response rate for the survey over the past 12 months has been 89.0%. As Statistics Canada is continuing to collect data for the September reference month, this early indicator is subject to a higher revision rate than our regular monthly release.
