    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:

    Since 2007/2008, Statistics Canada has centred analysis of data holdings related to health as well as our program of dissemination of health research within the new Health Information and Research Division (HIRD).

    The new division has launched a comprehensive approach to analytical planning including environmental scanning and consultation; establishment of strategic multi-year priorities for health research at Statistics Canada; a process of project selection and review that ensures that analytical effort addresses our priorities; metrics to measure our adherence to priorities and the impact of our analytical effort; and communication and dissemination of analytical plans.

    This multi-year analytical plan identifies the key high-level priority areas for Statistics Canada's investment in health research for 2008/2009 to 2010/2011, and serves as a blueprint for subsequent operational research planning.

    Description:

    The 2006 Census hit the streets during the hottest labour market in a generation, with many regional unemployment rates at long-term lows and wage increases outstripping price hikes. While technological advances reduced manpower needs, tens of thousands of temporary workers were still required which proved to be a problem in many areas. Census managers extended the collection period and moved an unprecedented number of enumerators across regions to attain acceptable data quality while remaining within budget.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 68-514-X
    Description:

    Statistics Canada's approach to gathering and disseminating economic data has developed over several decades into a highly integrated system for collection and estimation that feeds the framework of the Canadian System of National Accounts.

    The key to this approach was creation of the Unified Enterprise Survey, the goal of which was to improve the consistency, coherence, breadth and depth of business survey data.

    The UES did so by bringing many of Statistics Canada's individual annual business surveys under a common framework. This framework included a single survey frame, a sample design framework, conceptual harmonization of survey content, means of using relevant administrative data, common data collection, processing and analysis tools, and a common data warehouse.

    Knowledge management practices were more important to the success of innovative business units in selected service industries than was the case for non-innovative business units. Innovative business units were those that introduced new or significantly improved products or processes between 2001 and 2003. The knowledge management practices that were important to their success included knowledge sharing, knowledge codification, knowledge development and knowledge acquisition and retention practices.

    Description:

    This article presents findings from a 2001 Canadian pilot survey on the use of knowledge management practices by firms. Of the firms surveyed, 9 out of 10 firms reported using at least 1 of the 23 knowledge management practices that were studied. This survey, a world first by a statistical agency, measured the extent to which knowledge management practices were used by Canadian businesses in forestry and logging; chemical manufacturing; transportation equipment manufacturing; machinery, equipment and supply wholesaler-distributors; and management, scientific and technical consulting services. The reasons for and the results of using knowledge management practices, as well as the practices themselves, are examined by firm size and by type of adopter.

    Description:

    National statistical offices are often called upon to produce statistics for small geographic areas, in addition to their primary responsibility for measuring the condition of the country as a whole and its major subdivisions. This task presents challenges that are different from those faced in statistical programs aiming primarily at national or provincial statistics. This paper examines these challenges and identifies strategies and approaches for the development of programs of small area statistics. The important foundation of a census of population, as well as the primary role of a consistent geographic infrastructure, are emphasized. Potential sources and methods for the production of small area data in the social, economic and environmental fields are examined. Some organizational and dissemination issues are also discussed.

    The U.S. Census Bureau developed software called the Standard Economic Processing System (StEPS) to replace 16 separate systems used to process the data from over 100 current economic surveys. This paper describes the methodology and design of the StEPS modules for editing and imputation and summarizes the reactions of users to using these modules to process their surveys.

    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.

    At Statistics Netherlands, the design and organization of the statistical process is changing rapidly, motivated by the need to produce more consistent data and to cut down the response burden. The ideas behind the new production process are the integration of all survey and administrative data into a limited number of micro-databases and the development of an estimation strategy for those databases.

    This paper provides the initial incentive for an estimation strategy per micro-database. The proposed strategy ensures that all estimated m-way tables are numerically consistent with respect to common margins, even if these tables are estimated from different surveys. Although still based on the calibration principle, it is not necessarily centred on a fixed set of weights per survey. The practicability of the strategy is tested by means of a fictitious example.

    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.

    The demand for information on the electronic economy requires statistical agencies to assess the relevancy and improve the quality of their existing measurement programs. Innovations at the U.S. Census Bureau have helped the Bureau meet the user's urgent needs for this information, and improve the quality of the data. Through research conducted at the U.S. Census Bureau, as well as tapping into the expertise of academia, the private sector, and other government agencies, the new data on electronic commerce and electronic business processes has been strengthened. Using both existing and new data, the U.S. Census Bureau has discovered that research provides new key estimates of the size, scope, and impact of the new economy.

    Description:

    This report describes the comments received as a result of the second round of the 2006 Census consultations. As with the previous 2006 Census consultation, this second round of consultations integrated discussions on the dissemination program, questionnaire content and census geography. However, the focus of this second round of consultations was placed on the 2001 Census of Population dissemination program and proposed directions for 2006 geography. Consultations were held from January to June 2004. Approximately 1,000 comments were captured through written submissions and the organization of over 40 meetings across Canada.

    This report describes users' feedback on dissemination and geography issues received through this second round of consultations. In addition to user's comments, web metrics information serves as a valuable tool when evaluating the accessibility of public good data tables. Therefore, page view counts have been integrated in this report.

    Some general planning assumptions that focus on the production and dissemination of 2006 Census products are also included in this report.
