    Description:

    Micro-level information on buildings and physical infrastructure is increasing in relevance to social, economic and environmental statistical programs. Alternative data sources and advanced analytical methods can be used to generate some of this information. This paper presents how multiple convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are finetuned to classify buildings into different types (e.g., house, apartment, industrial) using their street-view images. The CNNs use the structure of the façade in the building’s image for classification. Multiple state-of-the-art CNNs are finetuned to accomplish the classification task. The trained models provide a proof of concept and show that CNNs can be used to classify buildings using their street-view imagery. The training and validation performance of the trained CNNs are measured. Furthermore, the trained CNNs are evaluated on a separate test set of street-view imagery. This approach can be used to augment the information available on openly accessible databases, such as the Open Database of Buildings.

    Description:

    The Canadian Freight Analysis Framework (CFAF) integrates data from several sources to create a comprehensive picture of freight flows across the country by geography, commodity and mode of transport. The framework database estimates tonnage, value, and tonne-kilometers by origin and destination, by commodity type, and by mode. The database can be used in a variety of analyses including, for example, assessing highway capacity and forecasting traffic, evaluating investments in infrastructure, examining trade flows, and analyzing policies such as road pricing and multimodal freight programs. The data are provided in spreadsheet format for ease of use. A data dictionary in HTML format is also included to provide information on the variables available in the database. By referring to the CFAF dictionary, data users will gain a better understanding of the data.

    Description: The Permanent Census of Population and Housing is the new census strategy adopted in Italy in 2018: it is based on statistical registers combined with data collected through surveys specifically designed to improve registers quality and assure Census outputs. The register at the core of the Permanent Census is the Population Base Register (PBR), whose main administrative sources are the Local Population Registers. The population counts are determined correcting the PBR data with coefficients based on the coverage errors estimated with surveys data, but the need for additional administrative sources clearly emerged while processing the data collected with the first round of Permanent Census. The suspension of surveys due to global-pandemic emergency, together with a serious reduction in census budget for next years, makes more urgent a change in estimation process so to use administrative data as the main source. A thematic register has been set up to exploit all the additional administrative sources: knowledge discovery from this database is essential to extract relevant patterns and to build new dimensions called signs of life, useful for population estimation. The availability of the collected data of the two first waves of Census offers a unique and valuable set for statistical learning: association between surveys results and ‘signs of life’ could be used to build classification model to predict coverage errors in PBR. This paper present the results of the process to produce ‘signs of life’ that proved to be significant in population estimation.

    Key Words: Administrative data; Population Census; Statistical Registers; Knowledge discovery from databases.

    Description:

    This paper presents an open-source system that was developed for automatic estimation of building height from street-view images using Deep Learning (DL), advanced image processing techniques, and geospatial data. The goal of the developed system is to ultimately be used to enrich the Open Database of Buildings (ODB), that was published by Statistics Canada, as a part of the Linkable Open Data Environment (LODE). Some of the obtained results for building-height estimation are presented. Some challenging cases and the scalability of the system are discussed as well.

    Description:

    Recent advances in artificial intelligence have rekindled ancient fears that robots will replace humans in the economy. Previous waves of automation changed but did not reduce labour’s role, but robots’ human-like flexibility could make this time different. Whether or not it will is an empirical question that has lacked suitable data to answer. This paper describes the creation of a dataset to fill the evidence gap in Canada. Robots! is firm-level panel data on robot adoption created using Canadian import data. The data identify a substantial amount of the robot investment in the Canadian economy from 1996 to 2017. Although many robots are imported by robotics wholesalers or programmers for resale, the majority of them can be attributed to their final (direct) adopting firm. The data can be used to study the impact of robot adoption at the economic region, industry or firm-level.

    Description:

    The Whole Farm Data Base (WFDB) is the product of a joint venture between Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Statistics Canada. It was developed with the intention to meet the increasing demands of users of agricultural statistics for more disaggregated data at the whole farm level. The WFDB provides the means for users to evaluate agricultural policies and programs as well as analyze the viability, stability, and competitiveness of various farm businesses.

    Integrating into one base the agricultural data, which are available from administrative and survey sources, is the essence of the WFDB. It can offer users access to a wider than ever range of disaggregated physical and financial data at the farm level.

    This reference manual will familiarize potential users of the WFDB with the structure of the data base and the quality of the data and give a description of the WFDB products and services that are currently available.

    Description:

    The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of existing methods and techniques making use of personal identifiers to support record linkage. Record linkage can be loosely defined as a methodology for manipulating and / or transforming personal identifiers from individual data records from one or more operational databases and subsequently attempting to match these personal identifiers to create a composite record about an individual. Record linkage is not intended to uniquely identify individuals for operational purposes; however, it does provide probabilistic matches of varying degrees of reliability for use in statistical reporting. Techniques employed in record linkage may also be of use for investigative purposes to help narrow the field of search against existing databases when some form of personal identification information exists.

    This paper states how SN is preparing for a new era in the making of statistics, as it is triggered by technological and methodological developments. An essential feature of the turn to the new era is the farewell to the stovepipe way of data processing. The paper discusses how new technological and methodological tools will affect processes and their organization. Special emphasis is put on one of the major chances and challenges the new tools offer: establishing coherence in the content of statistics and in the presentation to users.

    Description:

    The Longitudinal Immigration Database (IMDB) links immigration and taxation administrative records into a comprehensive source of data on the labour market behaviour of the landed immigrant population in Canada. It covers the period 1980 to 1995 and will be updated annually starting with the 1996 tax year in 1999. Statistics Canada manages the database on behalf of a federal-provincial consortium led by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The IMDB was created specifically to respond to the need for detailed and reliable data on the performance and impact of immigration policies and programs. It is the only source of data at Statistics Canada that provides a direct link between immigration policy levers and the economic performance of immigrants. The paper will examine the issues related to the development of a longitudinal database combining administrative records to support policy-relevant research and analysis. Discussion will focus specifically on the methodological, conceptual, analytical and privacy issues involved in the creation and ongoing development of this database. The paper will also touch briefly on research findings, which illustrate the policy outcome links the IMDB allows policy-makers to investigate.
