Food Prices Review Board—dairy report data
This file contains monthly price data on dairy foods consisting of producer prices, list prices, retail prices, cost prices and discounts by month for milk, butter, cheese and ice cream in various stores. Eleven supermarket chains in seven Canadian cities were surveyed: Toronto, Winnipeg, Montréal, Vancouver, Calgary, Regina and Halifax. The data are expressed as monthly prices in Canadian cents covering the period from January 1972 to June 1975. These datasets have been converted from their legacy file structures and encoding schemes so they can be used by contemporary computers that are based upon the ASCII character-encoding scheme. Each dataset will require specialized software such as a statistical tool, to interpret and analyze the content in each file. The attached codebook describes the file’s structure and defines the variables contained in each field. Each code book is a compilation of the summary description of the dataset as provided by the creating department. As such, it is available in English only.
