  • Table: 84-208-X
    Description:

    This publication contains statistical tables showing the number of deaths by age, sex and underlying cause for Canada (and by sex for the provinces for 1999 and earlier).

    Underlying cause of death is defined as the disease or injury which initiated the train of morbid events leading directly to death, or the circumstances of the accident or violence which produced the fatal injury. The underlying cause is selected from a number of conditions listed on the medical certificate of death.

    The underlying cause is presented by the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) codes, established by the World Health Organization (WHO, 1992). Beginning in 2000, causes of death in Canada are coded according to the 10th revision of the Classification, referred to as ICD-10. The previous revision, ICD-9 (WHO, 1977), was used for the classification of cause of death in Canada from 1979 to 1999.

    Description:

    The 1996 Canadian Census is adjusted for coverage error as estimated primarily through the Reverse Record Check (RRC). In this paper, we will show how there is a wealth of additional information from the 1996 Reverse Record Check of direct value to population estimation. Beyond its ability to estimate coverage error, it is possible to extend the Reverse Record Check classification results to obtain an alternative estimate of demographic growth - potentially decomposed by component. This added feature of the Reverse Record Check provides promise in the evaluation of estimated census coverage error as well as insight as to possible problems in the estimation of selected components in the population estimates program.

    Description:

    As the availability of both health utilization and outcome information becomes increasingly important to health care researchers and policy makers, the ability to link person-specific health data becomes a critical objective. This type of linkage of population-based administrative health databases has been realized in British Columbia. The database was created by constructing an historical file of all persons registered with the health care system, and then by probabilistically linking various program files to this 'coordinating' file. The first phase of development included the linkage of hospital discharge data, physician billing data, continuing care data, data about drug costs for the elderly, births data and deaths data. The second phase of development has seen the addition data sources external to the Ministry of Health including cancer incidence data, workers' compensation data, and income assistance data.

    Description:

    In epidemiology analysis of longitudinal data is commonly accepted as providing the most robust measures of association between putative risk and selected outcomes such as death or cancer. SMARTIE is a SAS application for efficient analysis of longitudinal data. Based on person days at risk, it can handle multiple exits from and re-entries to risk, and derives outcome measures such as survival rates. Standardised Mortality Ratios (SMRs) and Cancer Incidence Ratios (SIRs). Summary data can be produced in a format easily ported to any modelling package such as Stats 5.0. We discuss the background to its development, the overall program structure, its command language, and finally we say something about the organization of outputs. Findings from survival studies using the Longitudinal Study of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) are used to demonstrate features of SMARTIE. This study is based on one per cent of the population of England and Wales. It is continually updated with the addition of new members and with information from birth, death and cancer records, and from the census.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 12-001-X19970023618
    Description:

    Statistical agencies often constitute their business panels by Poisson sampling, or by stratified sampling of fixed size and uniform probabilities in each stratum. This stampling corresponds to algorithms which use permanent numbers following a uniform distribution. Since the characteristics of the units change over time, it is necessary to periodically conduct resamplings while endeavouring to conserve the maximum number of units. The solution by Poisson sampling is the simplest and provides the maximum theoretical coverage, but with the disadvantage of a random sample size. On the other hand, in the case of stratified sampling of fixed size, the changes in strata cause difficulties precisely because of these fixed size constraints. An initial difficulty is that the finer the stratification, the more the coverage is decreased. Indeed, this is likely to occur if births constitute separate strata. We show how this effect can be corrected by rendering the numbers equidistant before resampling. The disadvantage, a fairly minor one, is that in each stratum the sampling is no longer a simple random sampling, which makes the estimation of the variance less rigorous. Another difficulty is reconciling the resampling with an eventual rotation of the units in the sample. We present a type of algorithm which extends after resampling the rotation before resampling. It is based on transformations of the random numbers used for the sampling, so as to return to resampling without rotation. These transformations are particularly simple when they involve equidistant numbers, but can also be carried out with the numbers following a uniform distribution.
