    Description:

    The National Routing System is a multi-jurisdictional effort to improve the collection and validation of birth and death information from provincial vital event registries. Instead of having to wait for batch files to be sent at various points during the year, provinces send individual records as an event is registered. Timeliness is further enhanced by the adoption of data and technical standards. Data users no longer have to deal with multiple data formats and transfer media when compiling data from multiple sources. Similarly, data providers need to perform a once only transformation of their data in order to satisfy multiple clients.

    Description:

    This paper discusses the challenges Statistics Canada faces in changing its method of transferring information from paper into an electronic medium for the 2006 Census. After contracting with Lockheed Martin, data capture will change from direct data entry by humans to a system that uses optical technologies to scan, recognize, process and save most of the information, largely without human intervention.

    Description:

    Today, businesses and individuals are more frequently using electronic networks to obtain information; but are they also using these networks to share information or to create business solutions? Individuals can turn to the Internet to check out companies that post annual reports, catalogues and job opportunities. Businesses can post their catalogues, ask for and reply to tenders, offer training, communicate with customers and suppliers, and post job opportunities over electronic networks. Finally, public sector administrations have entered heavily into electronic information sharing under such initiatives as Government On-Line.

    The Survey of Electronic Commerce and Technology captured how, in 2001, businesses used the Internet, intranets, extranets or electronic data interchanges (EDIs) to make information available within their organizations, to their suppliers or customers, or accessible to other organizations. Businesses were asked the types of information, or interactive or network-based activities they made available via electronic networks. Information included product descriptions or catalogues, order status, demand projections, inventory data, customer information and job opportunities. The one interactive or network-based activity captured was electronic training. The information flows captured by this question provide a better understanding of how e-business, in particular electronic customer and supplier relationships, is operating in Canada.

    Description:

    The policy and processes involving mentally disordered accused can be complex. Persons found unfit to stand trial, or not criminally responsible for their actions on account of a mental disorder, come into contact with both the health and justice systems. With the increasing availability over the past two to three decades of psychotropic medication for mentally disordered persons, the health system is now able to treat this group in a non-institutionalized setting. Similarly, dispositions made by the court, when the accused has been found either unfit to stand trial or else not criminally responsible for their actions, have shifted from indeterminate incarceration to minimal detention and community-based treatment. This document reviews the processes undertaken by persons identified as mentally disordered in court and identifies potential data-collection opportunities.

    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 paper summarizes recent Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) methodological developments and other experiences with electronic data reporting (EDR). It deals particularly with the part of EDR loosely defined as 'e-forms', or screen-based direct collection instruments, where the respondent manually enters all or most of the data. In this context, the paper covers recent ABS experiences and current work, but does not revisit the historical EDR work or cover other developments in Australia outside the ABS.

    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 paper describes the Annual Business Inquiry (ABI) project to integrate the Office for National Statistics' (ONS) main, annual business surveys, regardless of economic sectors. The ABI project also brings together employment and financial data surveys and is capable of generating a wide range of subnational analyses, another objective of the development. Methodological aspects covered by the paper include sample design; estimation and outlier treatment; apportionment of data from reporting units to local units (individual sites) and the methodology for subnational and small area estimation. The subnational methodology involves the use of logistic and loglinear models.

    Description:

    GeoSearch is a new Internet tool that makes it easy to find any place in Canada, see it on a map, and get basic geographic and population and dwelling data for that place. To find a specific place of interest, users can click and zoom on a map of Canada or they can search by place name, street name, street intersection or postal code. GeoSearch finds and displays the appropriate map that shows boundaries and other features. GeoSearch also automatically displays population and dwelling counts for the selected place, and shows what kind of geographic area it is and its relationship to other geographic areas. Go to the Census Geography area on the Statistics Canada website. GeoSearch 2001 is no longer available. Information relating to the census standard geographic areas can be found in the Geography section of the census website. Population and dwelling counts from the 2001 Census can be found in the 2001 Census Highlight Tables or in the 2001 GeoSuite.

    Description:

    Developments in the relative wages of more and less educated workers during the early 1990s are examined using the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics. Particular attention is paid to the role of international trade in determining the wage differential between workers with post-secondary certification and those without. It is shown that in the absence of the relatively greater growth in the supply of more educated workers, the gap between the wages of more and less educated workers would have increased. After controlling for some of the most likely influences on real wages it is found that international trade has a significant positive impact on the wages of both more and less educated workers. However, the impact on the more highly educated seems to be some four times stronger, roughly the same as the impact of technological change
