In addition, SalesData subscribers can log in to view two categories of research reports. General research reports look at the impact of awards, backlist trends, and much more.

We regularly survey Canadian book buyers and readers to produce a variety of reports on book-buying behaviour and trends. Studies include The Canadian Book Buyer 2015, a comprehensive study of book buyer behaviour, Listen Up: Audiobook Use in Canada, and more.

For example, in 2013 we began surveying Canadian publishers about their digital publishing programs. We now have several years of data available in The State of Digital Publishing in Canada reports.
