    Description:

    The issue of reducing the response burden is not new. Statistics Sweden works in different ways to reduce response burden and to decrease the administrative costs of data collection from enterprises and organizations. According to legislation Statistics Sweden must reduce response burden for the business community. Therefore, this work is a priority. There is a fixed level decided by the Government to decrease the administrative costs of enterprises by twenty-five percent until year 2010. This goal is valid also for data collection for statistical purposes. The goal concerns surveys with response compulsory legislation. In addition to these surveys there are many more surveys and a need to measure and reduce the burden from these surveys as well. In order to help measure, analyze and reduce the burden, Statistics Sweden has developed the Register of Data providers concerning enterprises and organization (ULR). The purpose of the register is twofold, to measure and analyze the burden on an aggregated level and to be able to give information to each individual enterprise which surveys they are participating in.

    Description:

    This paper examines the factors underlying firm failure, and compares the failure mechanisms for young firms against those of older organizations. This paper suggests that there are systematic differences between the determinants of firm failure for firms that fail early in life and those that fail after having successfully negotiated the early liabilities of newness and adolescence. Data from 339 Canadian corporate bankruptcies confirm that younger firms fail because of inadequacies in managerial knowledge and financial management abilities. On the other hand, older firms are more likely to fail because of an inability to adapt to environmental change.

    Description:

    The reputation of a national statistical office (NSO) depends very much on the quality of the service it provides. Quality has to be a core value: providing a high quality service has to be the natural way of doing business. It has to be embedded in the culture of the NSO.

    The paper will outline what is meant by a high quality statistical service. It will also explore those factors that are important to ensuring a quality culture in an NSO. In particular, it will outline the activities and experiences of the Australian Bureau of Statistics in maintaining a quality culture.

    Description:

    One can argue that every organization that provides goods and services is interested in innovation to maximize its competitiveness. The question is whether the organizational structure (the bureaucracy) as the means to organizational ends is conducive to innovations. This paper discusses Dr. Soma Hewa's insights on some of Max Weber's thoughts to understanding the role of innovation in organizations.

    Description:

    This paper discusses in detail issues dealing with the technical aspects of designing and conducting surveys. It is intended for an audience of survey methodologists.This paper provides an initial look at the performance indicators of statistical agencies in the United States in order to offer a framework for benchmarking performance. As shown by this paper, several agencies have taken extremely different approaches in measuring their performance, both in terms of what they are measuring and how they are measuring it. Sharing this information is the first step toward making these measures more robust and comparable across all US agencies and international statistics offices.

    Description:

    Dr. Fellegi considers the challenges facing government statistical agencies and strategies to prepare for these challenges. He first describes the environment of changing information needs and the social, economic and technological developments driving this change. He goes on to describe both internal and external elements of a strategy to meet these evolving needs. Internally, a flexible capacity for survey taking and information gathering must be developed. Externally, contacts must be developed to ensure continuing relevance of statistical programs while maintaining non-political objectivity.

What services are they providing? This study examines the volunteer activity of seniors aged 55 and over in 1997.
