More Long-Run Canadian Economic Data

I was delighted to hear recently from former grad. student, Ryan Macdonald, who has worked at Statistics Canada for some years now. Ryan has been kind enough to draw my attention to all sorts of interesting items from time to time (e.g., see my earlier posts, here and here).

I always appreciate hearing from him.

His latest email was prompted by my post, A New Canadian macroeconomic Database.

Ryan wrote:
"I saw your post on long run data and thought you might be interested in a couple of other long-run datasets for your research.  If I remember correctly you are familiar with the GDP/GNI series, Long-run Real Income EstimatesI also added the long-run Bank of Canada commodity price series that go back to 1870 to it.  There is also a dataset for the provinces with estimates going back to 1950 or 1926 depending on the variable: Long-run Provincial and Territorial Data ."
Thanks for this information, Ryan.This will be very helpful, and I'd be more than happy to publicize any further such developments.
