Purchase volume figures have been converted to US dollars from Canadian dollars based on the average conversion factors for each quarter. To convert figures back to Canadian dollars, divide the figures shown by 0.797698834 (the average for the year). Purchase volume changes were calculated based on Canadian dollars for both years.
