Format

The objects are time series.

Details

Several data objects are loaded, as listed in the table ”New Variable definitions”. The CanadianMoneyData usage loads the most recent version and other usages loads data as of the given date.

These data are the components of the Canadian Monetary aggregates. They have been "continuity adjusted" so that take-overs and mergers do not result in breaks in the series. This involves re-arranging historical data so that it reflects the current structure of the industry. Trust company deposits are not included in some Canadian monetary aggregates so, if a bank takes over a trust company, the historical data for the trust company must be added to the bank's historical data to eliminate a break in the series. The series start at various dates but continuity adjustments prior to 1981 are not complete. More details about the adjustment are provided in Kottaras (2003).

The originally released data is usually very accurate because of bank reporting requirements. Beware that continuity adjustments described above are the main reason for revisions to the data. For this reason the "as of" data may not be especially useful for some kinds of data revision studies.

In January 2007 the aggregates M1 gross and M1 total (sometimes called M1 net) were discontinued, and M2, M2+, M2++, and M3 were modified to "gross" versions. The earlier CanadianMoneyData sets contain these series, but more recent ones do not. Components as of January 2007 are as shown in table ”New Variable definitions”.

Table ”Composition of the Monetary Aggregates” indicates how the components are added for the Bank of Canada monetary aggregates. This version of the table is for new monetary aggregates released in January 2007.

NetNonbankCheq = TMLCHEQPLUS + LCUCHEQPLUS - TMLinterbank;

NonbankNonCheq = TMLNCPLUSPLUS + LCUNCPLUSPLUS;

NetNonbankTotal= MV37235 + MV37239 - TMLinterbank;

use NetNonbankTotal = NonbankTerm + NonbankCheq + NetNonbankNonCheq

to get NonbankTerm = NetNonbankTotal - (NetNonbankCheq + NonbankNonCheq);

adjM1pp ( = adjV37210 - adjV37213 ) adjustment is only for data prior to the sample used in Gilbert and Pichette.

CUadj changes an estimate of NonbankNonCheq/NonbankTerm split prior to April 1996. This only affects M1++.

Previously the components were defined using the B-number designations. The variables were as shown in table ”Previously Components Definitions”.

The ”Previous Canadain Monetary Aggregates” table indicates how these components were added for the Bank of Canada monetary aggregates in the past. The column on the left indicates how they are combined to form components for factor estimates as in Gilbert and Pichette (2003).

NonbankTotal = NonbankTerm + NonbankCheq + NonbankNonCheq = MB2038M2P + MB2042
[actually NonbankTerm= NonbankTotal - (NonbankCheq + NonbankNonCheq ) ]

MB473adj ( = MB473PLUSPLUS - MB473 )adjustment is only for data prior to the sample used in Gilbert and Pichette.

CUadj changes an estimate of NonbankNonCheq/NonbankTerm split prior to April 1996. This only affects M1++.

Many of the MB numbers are related to B numbers from Statistics Canada's Cansim series identification system. The correspondence between these related B numbers and V number identifiers from the newer Statistics Canada Cansim II system is as shown in table ”Bank of Canada / Statistics Canada Cansim I and II numbers”.

Components are from the Bank of Canada. Population and consumer price index (CPI) data from Statistics Canada are used to calculate realM1 and percapitaM1.
