  • Articles and reports: 11-010-X20060129545
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper documents how changes in the rules of trade have affected the clothing market. Free trade with the US initially was a boon to domestic output and jobs. Imports from less-developed countries increased in the 1990s, but the entry of China into the WTO saw the displacement of many of these countries, as well as domestic producers. Consumers reaped the benefit of cheaper imports.

  • Table: 67-203-X
    Description:

    This comprehensive source on international service transactions contains aggregate and detailed breakouts by type of service each year since 1989. Major categories are travel, transportation, commercial and government services. Commercial services, comprising a range of business and professional services are categorized by geographical area (United States, European Union and all other countries), industry, country of control (Canada, United States, other) and whether or not the service was with foreign affiliated companies; these details are presented from 1996.

    New with the 1999 issue are annual breakdowns from 1991 of total services for 8 additional countries beyond the 47 already published. Each country is broken down into the following categories: travel, transportation, commercial and government services. For Canada as a whole, quarterly data for these same categories and 19 subcategories are also published from 1997, on both a raw and seasonally adjusted basis. The publication includes several pages of data analysis accompanied by graphics, definitions and data quality measures. Statistics are derived from surveys, administrative data and other sources.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X20050029047
    Description:

    This paper considers the problem of estimating, in the presence of considerable nonignorable nonresponse, the number of private households of various sizes and the total number of households in Norway. The approach is model-based with a population model for household size given registered family size. We account for possible nonresponse biases by modeling the response mechanism conditional on household size. Various models are evaluated together with a maximum likelihood estimator and imputation-based poststratification. Comparisons are made with pure poststratification using registered family size as stratifier and estimation methods used in official statistics for The Norwegian Consumer Expenditure Survey. The study indicates that a modeling approach, including response modeling, poststratification and imputation are important ingredients for a satisfactory approach.
