Answer

If you're working with industry research data (see RRU's guides to Industry Research and Market Research for more information), please refer to "Citing Business Databases" by MSU Libraries for sample citations to numerous databases*. You may not find an exact example to follow to create your reference, depending on the resource(s) you're using, so you may need to create your own reference that is based on the APA Style rules. Remember that the goal of a reference is to get your reader as close as possible to the source you used; for more information, see "The Generic Reference" and The Generic Reference: "Who?", "When?", "What?", and "Where?" from the APA Style Blog.

If you are using Statistics Canada data, please see "Statistics Canada Materials" for links to instructions and sample citations.
