    Description: Cancer survival estimates provide insights into the effectiveness of early detection and treatment. The stage of cancer at diagnosis is an important determinant of survival, reflecting the extent and spread at the time of disease detection. The recent extension of the Canadian Cancer Registry death-linked analytic file from 2014 to 2017 now offers an opportunity to provide more up-to-date net survival (NS) figures and to profile, for the first time, five-year NS estimates for Canada (excluding Quebec). This study presents five-year stage-specific cancer and five-year NS estimates for the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Canada.

    This discussion attempts to add to Wu’s review of inference from non-probability samples, as well as to highlighting aspects that are likely avenues for useful additional work. It concludes with a call for an organized stable of high-quality probability surveys that will be focused on providing adjustment information for non-probability surveys.

    Description:

    This fact sheet presents the most recent information about on-time and extended-time high school graduation rates in Canada. While this measure will not reflect whether youth ultimately graduate from high school during their lifetime, it does provide policy-makers and researchers with information on how youth progress through their secondary level studies and if they complete them within the expected amount of time.

    The Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP) draws from a wide variety of data sources to provide information on the school-age population, elementary, secondary and postsecondary education, transitions, and labour market outcomes. PCEIP products include tables, fact sheets, reports and a methodological handbook. They present indicators for all of Canada, the provinces, the territories, as well as selected international comparisons and comparisons over time. The Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP) is an ongoing initiative of the Canadian Education Statistics Council, a partnership between Statistics Canada and the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada that provides a set of statistical measures on education systems in Canada.

    Description:

    Methodological studies of the effects that human interviewers have on the quality of survey data have long been limited by a critical assumption: that interviewers in a given survey are assigned random subsets of the larger overall sample (also known as interpenetrated assignment). Absent this type of study design, estimates of interviewer effects on survey measures of interest may reflect differences between interviewers in the characteristics of their assigned sample members, rather than recruitment or measurement effects specifically introduced by the interviewers. Previous attempts to approximate interpenetrated assignment have typically used regression models to condition on factors that might be related to interviewer assignment. We introduce a new approach for overcoming this lack of interpenetrated assignment when estimating interviewer effects. This approach, which we refer to as the “anchoring” method, leverages correlations between observed variables that are unlikely to be affected by interviewers (“anchors”) and variables that may be prone to interviewer effects to remove components of within-interviewer correlations that lack of interpenetrated assignment may introduce. We consider both frequentist and Bayesian approaches, where the latter can make use of information about interviewer effect variances in previous waves of a study, if available. We evaluate this new methodology empirically using a simulation study, and then illustrate its application using real survey data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), where interviewer IDs are provided on public-use data files. While our proposed method shares some of the limitations of the traditional approach – namely the need for variables associated with the outcome of interest that are also free of measurement error – it avoids the need for conditional inference and thus has improved inferential qualities when the focus is on marginal estimates, and it shows evidence of further reducing overestimation of larger interviewer effects relative to the traditional approach.

    Description:

    This note presents a comparative study of three methods for constructing confidence intervals for the mean and quantiles based on survey data with nonresponse. These methods, empirical likelihood, linearization, and that of Woodruff’s (1952), were applied to data on income obtained from the 2015 Mexican Intercensal Survey, and to simulated data. A response propensity model was used for adjusting the sampling weights, and the empirical performance of the methods was assessed in terms of the coverage of the confidence intervals through simulation studies. The empirical likelihood and linearization methods had a good performance for the mean, except when the variable of interest had some extreme values. For quantiles, the linearization method had a poor performance, while the empirical likelihood and Woodruff methods had a better one, though without reaching the nominal coverage when the variable of interest had values with high frequency near the quantile of interest.

    Description:

    Networked Canada is the first comprehensive compendium to be published by Statistics Canada on the information and communications technologies (ICT) sector. The compendium has been designed as a profile of the information society, focusing on current trends, as well as an historical overview of the growth and development of the Canadian ICT sector industries. The publication contains two main parts. The first provides a statistical overview of the ICT sector on the basis of key economic variables, including production, employment, international trade, revenue and R&D expenditure. A summary of international ICT sector comparisons for selected variables, using recent data published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is also included here. The ever widening use of, and access to ICTs in the home, at work, in schools and by governments is examined in the second part.

    Many different data sources have been used throughout the project, and while all efforts have been made to maximize the amount of data available, it has not been possible in all instances to consistently report for all ICT industries and all relevant variables. The conversion to the new North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) has largely contributed to these difficulties, and it is expected that a greater range of data will be available once all of the survey programs begin reporting on the basis of this new industry classification.
