ECONOMIC GROWTH IN 2013
Preliminary estimates suggest that the Saskatchewan economy grew by 5.0% in 2013, the second fastest growth rate in the country after Newfoundland. A record-breaking crop was the reason.
The number of new businesses has exceeded the number of exits in each of the six years from 2007 to 2012.

A remarkably high number of Canadian-born adults with a university degree score poorly on literacy and numeracy tests. Saskatchewan residents do better than most.
FOOD BANK USAGE
After dropping in 2012 and 2013, the number of people using Saskatchewan food banks increased by nearly 20% in 2014.
GDP FOR METROPOLITAN AREAS
