    Description:

    Non-probability samples are deprived of the powerful design probability for randomization-based inference. This deprivation, however, encourages us to take advantage of a natural divine probability that comes with any finite population. A key metric from this perspective is the data defect correlation (ddc), which is the model-free finite-population correlation between the individual’s sample inclusion indicator and the individual’s attribute being sampled. A data generating mechanism is equivalent to a probability sampling, in terms of design effect, if and only if its corresponding ddc is of N-1/2 (stochastic) order, where N is the population size (Meng, 2018). Consequently, existing valid linear estimation methods for non-probability samples can be recast as various strategies to miniaturize the ddc down to the N-1/2 order. The quasi design-based methods accomplish this task by diminishing the variability among the N inclusion propensities via weighting. The super-population model-based approach achieves the same goal through reducing the variability of the N individual attributes by replacing them with their residuals from a regression model. The doubly robust estimators enjoy their celebrated property because a correlation is zero whenever one of the variables being correlated is constant, regardless of which one. Understanding the commonality of these methods through ddc also helps us see clearly the possibility of “double-plus robustness”: a valid estimation without relying on the full validity of either the regression model or the estimated inclusion propensity, neither of which is guaranteed because both rely on device probability. The insight generated by ddc also suggests counterbalancing sub-sampling, a strategy aimed at creating a miniature of the population out of a non-probability sample, and with favorable quality-quantity trade-off because mean-squared errors are much more sensitive to ddc than to the sample size, especially for large populations.

    Description:

    Two-phase sampling is a cost effective sampling design employed extensively in surveys. In this paper a method of most efficient linear estimation of totals in two-phase sampling is proposed, which exploits optimally auxiliary survey information. First, a best linear unbiased estimator (BLUE) of any total is formally derived in analytic form, and shown to be also a calibration estimator. Then, a proper reformulation of such a BLUE and estimation of its unknown coefficients leads to the construction of an “optimal” regression estimator, which can also be obtained through a suitable calibration procedure. A distinctive feature of such calibration is the alignment of estimates from the two phases in an one-step procedure involving the combined first-and-second phase samples. Optimal estimation is feasible for certain two-phase designs that are used often in large scale surveys. For general two-phase designs, an alternative calibration procedure gives a generalized regression estimator as an approximate optimal estimator. The proposed general approach to optimal estimation leads to the most effective use of the available auxiliary information in any two-phase survey. The advantages of this approach over existing methods of estimation in two-phase sampling are shown both theoretically and through a simulation study.

    Description:

    "Learning a living: First results of the Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey" presents new evidence on the nature and magnitude of the literacy gaps faced by OECD countries and how these gaps have evolved over the medium term.

    The fundamental goal of the Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey (ALL) is to shed new light on the twin processes of skill gain and loss. The survey is sponsored by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

    The report offers new insights into the factors that influence the formation and loss of adult skills in various settings - at home and at work - for the seven countries participating in the first round of data collection. The study offers the first comparative evidence on the impact of formal adult education and informal learning on the supply of skill. It also provides unique insight into the distribution of information and communication technology skills, and how these have amplified both productivity and wage inequality.

    It is meant to assist decision makers in formulating policy in four areas:-Policies aimed at removing skill deficits that act as barriers to innovation, productivity and high rates of economic growth;-Policies designed to limit and reverse social exclusion and income inequality; -Policies that seek to reduce the unit cost of delivering public health care and education services;-Policies conceived to improve quality in all spheres, from public services to quality of life, individual fulfillment and happiness.

    This work is an updated version of a study published under the same title following the population censuses of 1991 and 1996. The text and tables have been adapted to reflect the more complete data from the 2001 Census, in which the usual questions on knowledge of languages, mother tongue, and language spoken 'most often' at home are supplemented by a question on languages spoken 'regularly' at home , and a two-part question on language use at work, that is, the language used 'most often,' and other languages used 'regularly,' in the workplace. This enrichment of the content has allowed us to expand our analysis while remaining true to the initial goal of presenting in a straightfoward manner basic statistics on the country's demolinguistic reality.

    Description:

    Since September 11, 2001, important changes in the financial and operating statistics of airline activities in Canada have taken place. In particular, most airline companies have seen a deterioration of their financial positions and the number of flights and of seats available have generally decreased while security measures have increased. The aim of this paper is to examine the post-September 11 aviation market in Canada with respect to one key operating characteristic: the number of flights of airline companies operating in Canada. More specifically, the following questions are addressed: Was there a recovery in airline activities in Canada since September 11? Were all losses in all sectors recovered (domestic, transborder and international)? Were all losses at all airports recovered?

    This paper is divided into three sections: 1. Data sources and limitations, the scope of this research and the methodological approach used are described in the first section. 2. The second section highlights the main results obtained and discusses these results in the context of the recent trends in airline activities in Canada. 3. Lastly, some conclusions are offered, based on the evidence collected and analysed.
