  • Stats in brief: 45-28-0001202000100087
    Description:

    Using the latest data from the Vital Statistics - Death Database, this article presents information about the most common comorbid conditions in COVID-19 deaths, as well as the extent to which these conditions differ by age groups. Comorbidities are defined as chronic and acute conditions, diseases, disorders, and complications appearing on the medical certificate of cause of death where COVID-19 was involved in the death.

    Description:

    This article explores deaths in Canada that involved sepsis, a serious medical condition caused by an overwhelming immune response to an infection. Sepsis-associated mortality rates are presented over time and by sex, age and underlying cause of death. The article uses multiple-causes-of-death data from the Canadian Vital Statistics – Death Database. Data from the years 2000 to 2011 are used when discussing changes over time.

    Description:

    In recent years, the use of paradata has become increasingly important to the management of collection activities at Statistics Canada. Particular attention has been paid to social surveys conducted over the phone, like the Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID). For recent SLID data collections, the number of call attempts was capped at 40 calls. Investigations of the SLID Blaise Transaction History (BTH) files were undertaken to assess the impact of the cap on calls.The purpose of the first study was to inform decisions as to the capping of call attempts, the second study focused on the nature of nonresponse given the limit of 40 attempts.

    The use of paradata as auxiliary information for studying and accounting for survey nonresponse was also examined. Nonresponse adjustment models using different paradata variables gathered at the collection stage were compared to the current models based on available auxiliary information from the Labour Force Survey.

    Description:

    This article examines why many Statistics Canada surveys supply bootstrap weights with their microdata for the purpose of design-based variance estimation. Bootstrap weights are not supported by commercially available software such as SUDAAN and WesVar, but there are ways to use these applications to produce boostrap variance estimates.

    The paper concludes with a brief discussion of other design-based approaches to variance estimation as well as software, programs and procedures where these methods have been employed.
