  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X20070019850
    Description:

    Auxiliary information is often used to improve the precision of survey estimators of finite population means and totals through ratio or linear regression estimation techniques. Resulting estimators have good theoretical and practical properties, including invariance, calibration and design consistency. However, it is not always clear that ratio or linear models are good approximations to the true relationship between the auxiliary variables and the variable of interest in the survey, resulting in efficiency loss when the model is not appropriate. In this article, we explain how regression estimation can be extended to incorporate semiparametric regression models, in both simple and more complicated designs. While maintaining the good theoretical and practical properties of the linear models, semiparametric models are better able to capture complicated relationships between variables. This often results in substantial gains in efficiency. The applicability of the approach for complex designs using multiple types of auxiliary variables will be illustrated by estimating several acidification-related characteristics for a survey of lakes in the Northeastern US.

    Description:

    This paper will examine the overall impact of diamonds on the NWT since 1999 and provide data on production values from 2002 to 2005.

    The total impact of the discovery of diamonds in the NWT extends far beyond the scope of increased exports. Diamonds have had a significant effect on many aspects of the economy of the NWT. Manufacturing shipments, employment, GDP and income per capita have all seen remarkable turnarounds since the onset of production in 1999.

    Description:

    In the context of the progressive depletion of the world's fossil fuel reserves, energy research and development (R&D) is turning towards renewable resources. This article shows a rise during the period 2000 to 2002, compared with the period 1994 to 1996, in the share of R&D dedicated to energy "alternatives", and in particular to renewable energy resources. Between the same periods, expenditures for "traditional" types of energy R&D have fallen.

    Description:

    Quantifying how Canada's water yield has changed over time is an important component of the water accounts maintained by Statistics Canada. This study evaluates the movement in the series of annual water yield estimates for Southern Canada from 1971 to 2004. We estimated the movement in the series using a trend-cycle approach and found that water yield for southern Canada has generally decreased over the period of observation.

    Description:

    In 2008, Statistics Canada conducted the first Agricultural Water Use Survey. This pilot survey is part of the Canadian Environment Sustainability Indicators initiative and collects information on volumes of water used for irrigation, irrigated areas, irrigation practices and the quality of water used for agricultural purposes. This technical paper describes the methodology used for the pilot survey and includes recommendations for future cycles of the survey. The validation process seems to indicate that the method used to estimate the volumes of water used and the irrigated areas calculated underestimates the results. The report gives recommendations to minimize this bias in the next iterations of the survey. First, it is recommended to simplify the level of information collected by the survey; to review the sampling methodology; and to examine other means of collecting information on volumes of water used for irrigation. This pilot version of the survey remains a reliable source for consistent data on agricultural water use.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 16-001-M2009007
    Description:

    In this paper, we present the methodology developed by Statistics Canada to calculate the average annual water yield for Canada. Water yield, for the purposes of this paper, is defined as the amount of freshwater derived from unregulated flow (m3 s-1) measurements for a given geographic area over a defined period of time. The methodology is applied to the 1971 to 2000 time period.

    This research was conducted to fill data gaps in Statistics Canada's water statistics program. These gaps exist because estimates of freshwater flow for Canada have not been calculated regularly and have been produced using a variety of methods that do not necessarily generate comparable results. The methodology developed in this study produced results that are coherent through space and time. These results will be used in the future to investigate changes in water yield on a more disaggregated basis.

    To achieve the water yield estimate a database of natural streamflow observations from 1971 to 2000 was compiled. The streamflow values were then converted to a runoff depth and interpolated using ordinary kriging to produce spatial estimates of runoff. The spatial estimates were then scaled to create a National estimate of water yield as a thirty-year average. The methodology and results were then validated using a stability analysis and several techniques involving uncertainty. The result of the methodology indicates that the thirty-year average water yield for Canada is 3435 km3.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5114
    Description: Natural resource asset accounts are one of the main elements of the United Nations System of Environmental-Economic Accounting which was adopted as an international statistical standard in 2012. Natural resource asset accounts measure quantities of natural resource assets (oil, natural gas, minerals, and timber) and the annual changes in these assets due to natural processes and human activity. These accounts, which are recorded using both physical and monetary units, form the basis of the estimates of Canada's natural resource wealth that are integrated into the Canadian national balance sheet accounts.
