    Description: This paper uses longitudinal data derived from a database that integrates data from the Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS) with data from the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) and the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB) to provide insights into the differences in the rate of receipt of CERB and CESB of students who were in postsecondary education at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The emergency benefits payments are examined along various educational and socio-economic characteristics.

    Description:

    Multilevel time series (MTS) models are applied to estimate trends in time series of antenatal care coverage at several administrative levels in Bangladesh, based on repeated editions of the Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey (BDHS) within the period 1994-2014. MTS models are expressed in an hierarchical Bayesian framework and fitted using Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations. The models account for varying time lags of three or four years between the editions of the BDHS and provide predictions for the intervening years as well. It is proposed to apply cross-sectional Fay-Herriot models to the survey years separately at district level, which is the most detailed regional level. Time series of these small domain predictions at the district level and their variance-covariance matrices are used as input series for the MTS models. Spatial correlations among districts, random intercept and slope at the district level, and different trend models at district level and higher regional levels are examined in the MTS models to borrow strength over time and space. Trend estimates at district level are obtained directly from the model outputs, while trend estimates at higher regional and national levels are obtained by aggregation of the district level predictions, resulting in a numerically consistent set of trend estimates.

    Description:

    The Multiple Imputation of Latent Classes (MILC) method combines multiple imputation and latent class analysis to correct for misclassification in combined datasets. Furthermore, MILC generates a multiply imputed dataset which can be used to estimate different statistics in a straightforward manner, ensuring that uncertainty due to misclassification is incorporated when estimating the total variance. In this paper, it is investigated how the MILC method can be adjusted to be applied for census purposes. More specifically, it is investigated how the MILC method deals with a finite and complete population register, how the MILC method can simultaneously correct misclassification in multiple latent variables and how multiple edit restrictions can be incorporated. A simulation study shows that the MILC method is in general able to reproduce cell frequencies in both low- and high-dimensional tables with low amounts of bias. In addition, variance can also be estimated appropriately, although variance is overestimated when cell frequencies are small.

    Description:

    Multinational enterprises (MNEs) have been drivers of globalization. These enterprises have taken advantage of innovations in logistics and communications technology over the past four decades to diversify their supply chains and expand into new markets. Operating internationally, however, also allows MNEs to take advantage of tax systems which were designed for a less integrated era. For example, MNEs can arrange for profits to be 'shifted' by charging affiliates in high tax locations prices above market rates in transactions with affiliates in lower tax regions. These behaviours are referred to as base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS), and, although not illegal, they impact government revenues worldwide.

    Description:

    The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic required the Government of Canada to provide relevant and timely information to support decision-making around a host of issues, including personal protective equipment (PPE) procurement and deployment. Our team built a compartmental epidemiological model from an existing code base to project PPE demand under a range of epidemiological scenarios. This model was further enhanced using data science techniques, which allowed for the rapid development and dissemination of model results to inform policy decisions.

    Description:

    The increasing size and richness of digital data allow for modeling more complex relationships and interactions, which is the strongpoint of machine learning. Here we applied gradient boosting to the Dutch system of social statistical datasets to estimate transition probabilities into and out of poverty. Individual estimates are reasonable, but the main advantages of the approach in combination with SHAP and global surrogate models are the simultaneous ranking of hundreds of features by their importance, detailed insight into their relationship with the transition probabilities, and the data-driven identification of subpopulations with relatively high and low transition probabilities. In addition, we decompose the difference in feature importance between general and subpopulation into a frequency and a feature effect. We caution for misinterpretation and discuss future directions.

    Description:

    With labour market uncertainty increasing across Canada, there is a need for innovative ways to help displaced workers to re-skill/up-skill and potentially pivot to in-demand occupations. In our study, we present a unique approach to bridge the gap between the displaced and in-demand occupations and provide a machine learning framework that may be able to forecast employment by NAICS for 6 months. We have combined the monthly employment data from Statistics Canada’s Survey of Employment and Payroll Hours, and the monthly job ads counts from Burning Glass to achieve our goal. Our approach consists of three steps: 1.        Finding the displaced occupations in Alberta over the last 7 years based on the integrated actual employment and job ads count data. Step. 2. Using the list of displaced occupations, a unique pivot graph is developed to map a displaced occupation to a list of in-demand occupations which have skills similar to the chosen displaced occupation. Step 3.  Applying SARIMA and SARIMAX models to forecast employment for 6 months. The above approaches are aimed at assisting public policy and planning

    This article examines key housing markets in Canada prior to COVID-19 and offers an outlook of the impacts of the pandemic on the real estate market over the next few months. Price trends for four property types, such as new houses, new condominiums, resale houses and resale condominiums are explored. Prior to COVID-19, the price of condominium apartments increased at a faster pace than singles, semi-detached and row homes. The global pandemic may cause a shift of preferences for larger homes instead of condominiums as future home buyers may prefer larger homes in the suburbs as working from home becomes more prevalent.

    Description:

    Seasonal adjustment of time series at Statistics Canada is performed using the X-12-ARIMA method. For most statistical programs performing seasonal adjustment, subject matter experts (SMEs) are responsible for managing the program and for verification, analysis and dissemination of the data, while methodologists from the Time Series Research and Analysis Center (TSRAC) are responsible for developing and maintaining the seasonal adjustment process and for providing support on seasonal adjustment to SMEs. A visual summary report called the seasonal adjustment dashboard has been developed in R Shiny by the TSRAC to build capacity to interpret seasonally adjusted data and to reduce the resources needed to support seasonal adjustment. It is currently being made available internally to assist SMEs to interpret and explain seasonally adjusted results. The summary report includes graphs of the series across time, as well as summaries of individual seasonal and calendar effects and patterns. Additionally, key seasonal adjustment diagnostics are presented and the net effect of seasonal adjustment is decomposed into its various components. This paper gives a visual representation of the seasonal adjustment process, while demonstrating the dashboard and its interactive functionality.
