Survey of Employment Payroll and Hours

The Survey of Employment, Payrolls and Hours (SEPH) is a survey conducted by Statistics Canada that provides a monthly picture of earning amounts, as well as the number of jobs and hours worked by detailed industry categories at the national, provincial and territorial levels.

The Survey of Employment, Payrolls and Hours (SEPH) is a survey conducted by Statistics Canada that provides a monthly picture of earning amounts, as well as the number of jobs and hours worked by detailed industry categories at the national, provincial and territorial levels.

Monthly estimates are produced by a combination of a census of payroll deductions provided by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and the Business Payrolls Survey (BPS), which collects data from a sample of 15,000 businesses across Canada.

Excluded are businesses that are primarily involved in agriculture, fishing and trapping, private household services, religious organizations, international and extraterritorial public administration and military personnel of defence services.

Data from SEPH have been collected for provinces, territories and the country since 2001 and you will normally find new data from SEPH released during the last week of each month.
