Changes to the indicator, baseline, or target:
- We were not able to replicate the baseline number quoted in the Report of the Nova Scotia Commission on Building our New Economy.
- A new data source has since become available from Statistics Canada, which was adopted here.
- This new data source measures the number of business establishments participating in international merchandise exports. Note that an establishment is not the same as a business. A business can own multiple establishments.
- The change in indicator results in a new, higher baseline, but the target is still assumed to require 50% growth over the baseline.
