The Basics

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) does not contain examples of how to cite Canadian statistics.

Useful websites for citing statistics include:



Corporate Author. (Year). Title of document (Catalogue number). Place of publication: Author. Retrieved from URL

Statistics Canada. (2012). Low income families (No. 75F0002M - No. 002). Ottawa, ON: Author. Retrieved from 

Your professor may have different citing expectations than library staff. Always check at the beginning of term and before starting assignments that the citing rules you are using are appropriate for your class.
