OTTAWA, Oct 26 (Reuters) – Canadian factory sales most likely fell 0.1% in September from August, largely due to decreases in the primary metal, chemical and transportation equipment subsectors, Statistics Canada said in a flash estimate on Thursday.
The estimate was calculated based on a weighted response rate of 71.6%. The average weighted response rate for the survey over the previous 12 months has been 94.6%.
