  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 82-622-X2008003
    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:

    Internet use is an important hallmark for participation in an information society. Although 68% of adult Canadians went online for personal, non-business reasons in 2005, digital inequality persists both geographically and among certain population groups. While much research and policy attention has been aimed at understanding the barriers to Internet use, there were an estimated 850,000 Canadians who had used the Internet at one time but were no longer doing so in 2005. Who are these former users and why have they discontinued their use of the Internet?

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Through research and consultation, Statistics Canada was asked to investigate the availability of data to measure the infrastructure of health programs in educational institutions and the flow of individuals through these programs and into health occupations.

    This document marks the first stage in this project. Based upon nation-wide consultations, it lays out a conceptual framework and outlines a set of questions about health education, the individuals pursuing health education, the flow of individuals through health education, and the factors which affect that flow. The outline will enable the identification of information that is needed to support efficient and effective decisions and policies about health education programs and health human resources management.

    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.

    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 paper discusses in detail issues dealing with the technical aspects of designing and conducting surveys. It is intended for an audience of survey methodologists.

    This session provides three more contributions to the continuing discussion concerning the national statistics offices' response to the topic of quality -in particular, the subtopic of communicating quality. These three papers make the important and necessary assumption that national statistical offices have an obligation to report the limitations of the data; users should know and understand those limitations; and, as a result of understanding the limitations, users ought to be able to determine whether the data are fit for their purposes.

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Using survey data, this paper investigates problems that firms in the Canadian manufacturing sector face in their decision to adopt advanced technology. The data show that while the use of advanced technology is relatively important (users account for over 80% of all shipments), it is not widespread among firms (users represent only about one-third of all establishments). One explanation lies in the fact that while advanced technologies provide a wide range of benefits, firms also face a series of problems that impede them from adopting advanced technology. These impediments fall into five groups: cost-related, institution-related, labour-related, organization-related, and information-related.

    While it might be expected that impediments would be higher for non-users than users of technologies, the opposite occurs. We posit that the reason for this is that innovation involves a learning process. Innovators and technology users face problems that they have to solve and the more innovative firms have greater problems. We test this by examining the factors that are related to whether a firm reports that it faced impediments. Our multivariate analysis reveals that impediments are reported more frequently among technology users than non-users; and more frequently among innovating firms than non-innovating ones. We conclude that the information on impediments in technology and other related surveys (innovation) should not be interpreted as impenetrable barriers that prevent technology adoption. Rather, these surveys indicate areas where successful firms face and solve problems.

    Description:

    This paper is a sequel to the Access to the information highway paper (63F0002 no.9) published last year. It updates to 1996 the penetration rates of telephones, cable, computers and modems, and also provides 1996 data on cellular phones and Internet use. The penetration rates of these commodities are analyzed in relation to several socioeconomic and demographic variables.

    Virtually all households have a telephone, while almost three in four have cable, one in seven has their own cellular phone, and nearly one in three has a computer. Although half of the computer households have a modem, less than half of these particular households use their modem to access the Internet.

    Household income strongly affects penetration rates for cellular phones, computers and Internet use. However, among those with a computer, education level is a stronger predictor of Internet use than income. In contrast, for cellular phone penetration rates, income is a stronger predictor than education.
