"The Dominion Bureau of Statistics has charted Canada's progress from a country dependent on a staple economy to a mature industrial power poised at the brink of the information era. During this time the need for information has grown in both quantity and complexity while the technology for gathering, compiling, analysing, and disseminating information has been revolutionized. David A. Worton looks at how Canada's statistical system has coped with these tremendous changes and outlines some notable Canadian contributions to the science and production of statistics."--Jacket.
