The Dominion Bureau of Statistics, precursor to Statistics Canada, was founded in 1918 as a centralized national agency to replace the piecemeal arrangements that had developed over time and were no longer capable of satisfying twentieth-century statistical needs. David Worton traces the Bureau's evolution and looks at the individuals who influenced it, leading to its emergence in recent years as what is assessed to be the best institution of its kind in the world.
