    Description:

    Growth improved in 2004, part of the world economy having its best year in almost 3 decades. The boom in commodities and the rising loonie sent the trade surplus to a new record and helped investment snap out of a 3-year slump. Energy, especially the tar sands, was a focal point of the upturn in resources. Housing also enjoyed another good year. Growth was evenly spread, with no major industry or province posting a loss last year.

    Description:

    We consider the problem of estimating the “cost weights” and “relative importances” of different item strata for the local market basket areas. The estimation of these parameters is needed to construct the U.S. Consumer Price Index Numbers. We use multivariate models to construct composite estimators which combine information from relevant sources. The mean squared errors (MSE) of the proposed and the existing estimators are estimated using the repeated half samples available from the survey. Based on our numerical results, the proposed estimators seem to be superior to the existing estimators.
