Western Canada Permit Average Summary

When to Use a Count, a Percentage, or an Average to Measure oil & gas permit activity

  • For some goals, we’re interested in straight-out counts because it’s the existence of something that is important to improve, rather than its rate of occurrence. We simply want more of the stuff, or less of it.
  • For some goals, it’s more useful to know the rate of occurrence to really understand if change is happening. A simple count would mislead us to the wrong conclusion about trends, so we need to normalize the measure.
  • Then there are goals that are about the degree of change, rather than the rate of occurrence of change. A percentage would tell us only whether or not a result was achieved, rather that the degree to which that result was achieved.
