  • Public use microdata: 56M0003X
    Description:

    The public use microdata file (PUMF) from the Canadian Internet Use Survey (CIUS) provides data on the adoption and use of digital technologies and the online behaviors of individuals 15 years of age and older living in the ten provinces of Canada.

    The survey is built off the previous iteration of the CIUS, last conducted in 2012. While there is some comparability with the 2012 CIUS, the 2018 survey was redesigned in 2018 to reflect the rapid pace at which Internet technology has evolved since the previous survey iteration.

    The files include information on how individuals use the Internet, smartphones, and social networking websites and apps, including their intensity of use, demand for certain online activities, and interactions through these technologies.

    It also provides information on the use of online government services, digital skills, online work, and security, privacy and trust as it relates to the Internet.

    Description:

    As technology continues to evolve, it is more important now than ever to promote and strengthen security for individuals, governments and businesses to mitigate and prevent complex security threats. As a result of our new digital reality, the nature of crime, and the ways in which law enforcement and emergency response agencies work, are also evolving.

    While technology has the power to enable or facilitate crime, it can also be used as an effective tool to prevent, detect and respond to crime and other emergencies, and contribute to evidence-based decision-making in public safety.

    This panel discussion addresses the changing landscape of community safety, and discuss the role data continues to play in countering cybercrime in our new digital era.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 12-539-X
    Description:

    This document brings together guidelines and checklists on many issues that need to be considered in the pursuit of quality objectives in the execution of statistical activities. Its focus is on how to assure quality through effective and appropriate design or redesign of a statistical project or program from inception through to data evaluation, dissemination and documentation. These guidelines draw on the collective knowledge and experience of many Statistics Canada employees. It is expected that Quality Guidelines will be useful to staff engaged in the planning and design of surveys and other statistical projects, as well as to those who evaluate and analyze the outputs of these projects.

    Description:

    The presentation reviewed the methodological problems related to the anonymisation of a European database, problems enhanced by the multiplicity of perceptions and realities of disclosure risk encountered in the different countries. Best practices are benchmarked against the practical issues. The presentation detailed, first, the Eurostat policy and practical arrangements taken with respect to the release of EU-SILC micro data base and, second, the methodological options taken to anonymise the database. The close inter-relation between these two aspects is highlighted in the presentation. The solution realises a trade off between the reduction of disclosure risk in each national component and the utility of released micro data by preserving information content and harmonisation of procedures used. The future perspectives with respect to European micro data release were also discussed.

    Description:

    Currently, complementary cell suppression procedures are mostly used by statistical agencies to protect sensitive tabular data from disclosure. It is generally believed that the linear programming (LP) based complementary cell suppression procedures offer the best protection from wrongful disclosure of statistical information. This paper identifies limitations of conclusions drawn using LP-based audit procedures.
