    Description:

    This working paper presents a methodology to measure remoteness at the community level. The method takes into account some of the recent literature on the subject, as well as new computational opportunities provided by the integration of official statistics with data from non-official statistical sources. The approach that was used in the computations accounts for multiple points of access to services; it also establishes a continuum between communities with different transportation infrastructures and connectivity while at the same time retaining the information on the community transportation infrastructures in the database. In addition, a method to implement accessibility measures to selected services is also outlined and a sample of accessibility measures are computed.

  • Articles and reports: 11-522-X20050019464
    Description:

    The Quarterly Services Survey has maintained comprehensive response data since the survey's inception. In analyzing the data, we concentrate on three fundamental features of response: rate, timeliness, and quality. We examine these three components across multiple dimensions. We observe the effect associated with NAICS classification, company size and response mode.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X20020026423
    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:

    The reputation of a national statistical office depends on the level of service it provides. Quality must be a core value and providing excellent service has to be embedded in the culture of a statistical organization.

    The paper outlines what is meant by a high quality statistical service. It explores factors that contribute to a quality work culture. In particular, it outlines the activities and experiences of the Australian Bureau of Statistics in maintaining a quality culture.

    Geography: Canada
    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.

    Series description

    This series includes five general reference products - the Preview of Products and Services; the Catalogue; the Dictionary; the Handbook and the Technical Reports - as well as geography reference products - GeoSuite and Reference Maps.

    Product description

    Technical Reports examine the quality of data from the 1996 Census, a large and complex undertaking. While considerable effort was taken to ensure high quality standards throughout each step, the results are subject to a certain degree of error. Each report looks at the collection and processing operations and presents results from data evaluation, as well as notes on historical comparability.

    Technical Reports are aimed at moderate and sophisticated users but are written in a manner which could make them useful to all census data users. Most of the technical reports have been cancelled, with the exception of Age, Sex, Marital Status and Common-law Status, Coverage and Sampling and Weighting. These reports will be available as bilingual publications as well as being available in both official languages on the Internet as free products.

    This report deals with coverage errors, which occured when persons, households, dwellings or families were missed by the 1996 Census or enumerated in error. Coverage errors are one of the most important types of error since they affect not only the accuracy of the counts of the various census universes but also the accuracy of all of the census data describing the characteristics of these universes. With this information, users can determine the risks involved in basing conclusions or decisions on census data.
