  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X198700214516
    Description:

    The biases and stabilities of alternative variance estimators for the two stage random group design (Rao et al. 1962) are evaluated in a Monte Carlo study in the context of Canadian Labour Force Survey. The variance formula for raking ratio estimation procedure is derived using Taylor linearization method. The properties of the variance formula are investigated by a Monte Carlo simulation.

    Description:

    Because it is easy to use, the “AGEVEN” record makes it possible to date events more precisely and to classify retrospectively demographic events (births and deaths), changes in marital status and changes in place of residence. The data collected are used to accurately recreate the socio-economic conditions that were present when the demographic events being studied took place.

    Description:

    The CPS uses raking ratio estimation in post-stratification estimation to adjust sample estimates of population to census-based estimates of the population. An alternative procedure, using generalized least squares, is compared to the current procedure.

    Description:

    A class of “constrained minimum distance” methods is considered for constraining household weights to be consistent with auxiliary information on the number of persons in various age x race x sex cells. The constrained weights are as close as possible to the initial weights based on the inverse probability of selection. This class of methods includes raking and generalized least square methods, as well as multinomial maximum likelihood, (where the cells of the distribution are household types.) The properties of the methods in the presence of systematic undercoverage of the household types are studied through some simple models for coverage. Comparisons with the principal person method are made and the paper concludes with the observation that it is necessary to know more about the nature of survey undercoverage before deciding on which of the constrained minimum distance or principal person methods is to be preferred in applications.

    Description:

    Household surveys generally use separate procedures for estimating characteristics of persons and those of families. An integrated procedure is proposed and a least-squares estimator introduced to achieve this end. The estimator is shown to be unbiased under certain general conditions. Using data from the Canadian Labour Force Survey, variances for the estimator are calculated and shown to compare favourably to those from current procedures.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X198700214608
    Description:

    A hybrid technique is described that employs both conventional and raking ratio estimation to handle the case when the population frequencies N_ij in a two-dimensional table are known, but some of the observed frequencies n_ij are small (or zero). Results are provided on the approach taken as it has evolved in the Corporate Statistics of Income Program over the last several years. Changes are still being considered and these will be discussed as well.

    Description:

    The Hansen-Hurwitz (1943) strategy is known to be inferior to the Horvitz-Thompson (1952) strategy associated with a number of IPPS (inclusion probability proportional to size) sampling procedures. The present paper presents a simpler proof of these results and therefore has some pedagogic interest.

    Description:

    The two-stage rejection rule telephone sample design described by Waksberg (1978) is modified to improve the efficiency of telephone surveys of the U.S. Black population. Experimental tests of sample design alternatives demonstrate that: a) use of rough stratification based on telephone exchange names and states; b) use of large cluster definitions (200 and 400 consecutive numbers) at the first stage; and c) rejection rules based on racial status of the household combine to offer improvements in the relative precision of a sample, given fixed resources. Cost and error models are examined to simulate design alternatives.

    Description:

    This paper presents results from methodological experiments comparing telephone and face-to-face interviewing in surveys of the general population. The relatively low level of telephone ownership in the United Kingdom, especially among the less privileged, argues the need for a dual-mode approach combining telephone interviews with face-to-face interviews for those without telephones. This approach depends on the absence of differential mode-effects on the answers obtained or on the ability to account for these effects when they occur.

    Description:

    Demands for statistics on all aspects of our lives, our society and our economy continue to grow. At the same time statistical agencies share with many respondents a growing concern over the mounting burden of response to surveys. One result of the search for alternative methods of satisfying statistical demands has been an increased emphasis on the use of administrative records for statistical purposes. This paper reviews recent experience at Statistics Canada in this area and discusses obstacles to the greater use of administrative records. Approaches to rendering administrative systems more useful for statistical purposes are reviewed, together with some important concerns related to information protection and record linkage.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 45-20-0001
    Description:

    The Canadian Index of Multiple Deprivation (CIMD) is an area-based index which used 2016 Census of Population microdata to measure four key dimensions of deprivation at the dissemination area (DA)-level: residential instability, economic dependency, situational vulnerability and ethno-cultural composition.

    The CIMD allows for an understanding of inequalities in various measures of health and social well-being. While it is a geographically-based index of deprivation and marginalization, it can also be used as a proxy for an individual. The CIMD has the potential to be widely used by researchers on a variety of topics related to socio-economic research. Other uses for the index may include: policy planning and evaluation, or resource allocation.

  • Classification: 12-608-X
    Description:

    The Standard Classification of Countries and Areas of Interest (SCCAI) has been developed to increase coherence of the list of countries used within Statistics Canada and to be more consistent with Government of Canada norms. This list of countries and areas includes those for which statistical data are compiled and applies to both economic and social statistics.

    The variant Countries and Areas of Interest for Social Statistics - SCCAI was developed to create groupings of countries to enable the production of integrated statistics when publishing social statistics data. These groupings are based on those used historically for Statistics Canada's Census of Population place of birth variable. The variant has three levels: geographical macro-regions, geographical sub-regions, and countries or areas of interest.

    Description:

    The mandate of the Analytical Studies Branch (ASB) is to provide high-quality, relevant and timely information on economic, health and social issues that are important to Canadians. The branch strategically makes use of expert knowledge and a large range of statistical sources to describe, draw inferences from, and make objective and scientifically supported deductions about the evolving nature of the Canadian economy and society. Research questions are addressed by applying leading-edge methods, including microsimulation and predictive analytics using a range of linked and integrated administrative and survey data. In supporting greater access to data, ASB linked data are made available to external researchers and policy makers to support evidence-based decision making. Research results are disseminated by the branch using a range of mediums (i.e., research papers, studies, infographics, videos, and blogs) to meet user needs. The branch also provides analytical support and training, feedback, and quality assurance to the wide range of programs within and outside Statistics Canada.
