FMLCN

Fichier de microdonnées longitudinales des comptes nationaux (FMLCN)

description

  • Nature : Base de données administratives longitudinales d'entreprises.
  • Utilisation : Le FMLCN peut servir à examiner la productivité de la main-d'œuvre, le PIB et l'emploi dans les entreprises selon des catégories de taille d'entreprise. Il peut aussi servir à examiner l'activité économique aux niveaux infra provinciaux (AR et RMR).
  • Contenu : Cette base de données est conçue pour suivre le PIB et l'emploi dans les entreprises et les emplacements où elles exercent leurs activités.
  • Période de couverture : 2001 à 2012.

Funded Projects

Ce projet vise à étudier comment la signature des accords internationaux d'investissement (AII) modifie la structure des entreprises canadiennes qui commercialisent et investissent dans les pays partenaires de l'AII. L'objectif s'agit d'estimer comment la partie des protections des investissements dans ces accords a une incidence sur les décisions des entreprises canadiennes; on cherche à voir si elles décident d'intégrer verticalement (avec leurs fournisseurs intermédiaires dans ces pays), ou d'intégrer horizontalement en se développant vers de nouveaux marchés.

Des données CDRE seront étudiées afin d'estimer combien de temps les entreprises les plus productives restent aux niveaux hauts de productivité, et de mesurer à quel niveau de productivité sont ces entreprises juste avant (et potentiellement après) qu'elles atteignent le sommet de la distribution de productivité. Les chercheurs examinent également si les variations de productivité de l'entreprise ont une dynamique différente en fonction de si ces variations sont négatives ou positives, faibles ou importantes. Ce projet a le potentiel d'influencer les modèles macroéconomiques modernes, qui ont tendance à intégrer des processus dynamiques très simples.

Empirical evidence for many countries suggests that trade intermediaries, such as wholesalers, account for a substantial share of the total import value. Given that these firms constitute an intermediate step in the distribution of merchandise, wholesalers’ decisions of what products to import and from where are likely to affect the nature and magnitude of trade frictions, as well as the degree of competition faced by domestic producers. In order to contribute to a better understanding of the role played by wholesalers, this project is focused on studying how their import activity affects firms in the manufacturing sector. In particular, it aims to identify the multiple margins that manufacturing firms adjust in response to higher import penetration in consumption and intermediate goods by wholesalers.

The post-Great Recession (2007-2009) economy has exhibited a slow rate of recovery. This is especially evident when examining unemployment. One suggested underlying cause of this trend is the significant decline in new firms, or new entrants, during 2008-2009. In Canada, while there has been a slow decrease in unemployment, the employment rate has remained steady. Thus, it appears the ability to create jobs has not yet recovered since the Great Recession. This raises the question of what factors determine a firm’s status as a job creator. The firm entry rate in Canada is decreasing, while the job creation rate of firms who do enter the market is 1.5 to 2.5%. This is greater than the aggregate annual job growth in Canada. This trend shows firms that have an established position in the market are not net job creators, and new firms may be job creators. With these facts in mind, this study hopes to answer the following questions: (1) what factors affect the initial performance of new firms and (2) what determines the fact that some firms are high growth (job creators), while others rapidly shrink. The study will also focus on how constraints after a financial shock (i.e. the Great Recession) affect the entry decision of new firms.

Asymmetric information, when one party in a transaction possesses more information than the other, is common in creditor-borrower relations. When proper and complete information is not available, creditors may not be able to assess the ability of a firm to repay debt. Thus, this problem of asymmetric information may cause creditors to ration loans, or not price debt efficiently (i.e. the price that truly reflects the position of the firm). This may limit access of funds to productive firms, especially Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), that are known to employ the majority of an economy’s workforce. Some mechanisms exist that may mitigate the problems associated with information asymmetry. For example, bank-firm relationships may complement available financial information. Through long-term relationships, banks may obtain “soft information” such as the quality of management, revenue volatility, customer loyalty, etc. The purpose of this paper is to determine if such bank-firm relationships improve debt pricing of SMEs and other frictions associated with asymmetric information.

As robotics technologies have become both more advanced and affordable for adoption by firms, there has been growing academic interest in understanding the effects of robotics on firm productivity and on employees within organizations (Acemoglu and Restrepo 2016, Agarwal et al. 2017, Brynjolfsson and Mitchell 2017, Felten et. al 2018).  However, to date there has been no published work examining a fundamental question—have investments in robots increased firm productivity?  Preliminary work thus far on employment effects has also faced limitations due to coarse measures of employee skills and occupations.  The scope of the project includes answering the following questions: 

  1. What is the effect of robot investments on Canadian firm productivity?
  2. What is the effect of robot investments on aggregate employment within the firm?
  3. Do robots heterogeneously affect the employment of different types of workers within the firm?  For example, are certain worker types more likely to be displaced by robots relative to others (high skilled, low skilled, managers)?
