    Description:

    A randomized response model for sampling from dichotomous populations is developed in this paper. The model permits the use of continuous randomization and multiple trials per respondent. The special case of randomization with normal distributions is considered, and a computer simulation of such a sampling procedure is presented as an initial exploration into the effects such a scheme has on the amount of information in the sample. A portable electronic device is discussed which would implement the presented model. The results of a study taken, using the electronic randomizing device, is presented. The results show that randomized response sampling is a superior technique to direct questioning for at least some sensitive questions.

    Description:

    Estimation procedures for obtaining consistent estimators of the parameters of a generalized logistic function and of its asymptotic covariance matrix under complex survey designs are presented. A correction in the Taylor estimator of the covariance matrix is made to produce a positive definite covariance matrix. The correction also reduces the small sample bias. The estimation procedure is first presented for cluster sampling and then extended to more complex situations. A Monte Carlo study is conducted to examine the small sample properties of F-tests constructed from alternative covariance matrices. The maximum likelihood estimation method where the survey design is completely ignored is compared with the usual Taylor’s series expansion method and with the modified Taylor procedure.

    Description:

    The paper describes a Monte Carlo study of simultaneous confidence interval procedures for k > 2 proportions, under a model of two-stage cluster sampling. The procedures investigated include: (i) standard multinomial intervals; (ii) Scheffé intervals based on sample estimates of the variances of cell proportions; (iii) Quesenberry-Hurst intervals adapted for clustered data using Rao and Scott’s first and second order adjustments to X^2; (iv) simple Bonferroni intervals; (v) Bonferroni intervals based on transformations of the estimated proportions; (vi) Bonferroni intervals computed using the critical points of Student’s t. In several realistic situations, actual coverage rates of the multinomial procedures were found to be seriously depressed compared to the nominal rate. The best performing intervals, from the point of view of coverage rates and coverage symmetry (an extension of an idea due to Jennings), were the t-based Bonferroni intervals derived using log and logit transformations. Of the Scheffé-like procedures, the best performance was provided by Quesenberry-Hurst intervals in combination with first-order Rao-Scott adjustments.

    Description:

    During the past 10 years or so, rapid progress has been made in the development of statistical methods of analysing survey data that take account of the complexity of survey design. This progress has been particularly evident in the analysis of cross-classified count data. Developments in this area have included weighted least squares estimation of generalized linear models and associated Wald tests of goodness of fit and subhypotheses, corrections to standard chi-squared or likelihood ratio tests under loglinear models or logistic regression models involving a binary response variable, and jackknifed chisquared tests. This paper illustrates the use of various extensions of these methods on data from complex surveys. The method of Scott, Rao and Thomas (1989) for weighted regression involving singular covariance matrices is applied to data from the Canada Health Survey (1978-79). Methods for logistic regression models are extended to Box-Cox models involving power transformations of cell odds ratios, and their use is illustrated on data from the Canadian Labour Force Survey. Methods for testing equality of parameters in two logistic regression models, corresponding to two time points, are applied to data from the Canadian Labour Force Survey. Finally, a general class of polytomous response models is studied, and corrected chi-squared tests are applied to data from the Canada Health Survey (1978-79). Software to implement these methods using the SAS facilities on a main frame computer is briefly described.

    Description:

    The cumulative toll of exposure to stressors (psychosocial, chemical, physical) can contribute to disease processes. The concept of allostatic load, essentially the cost of maintaining physiological stability in response to environmental demands, may be useful in assessing broad population health impacts of stressors beyond morbidity and mortality. In this study, allostatic load scores were generated for Canadians using data from cycles 1, 2, and 3 (2007 to 2013) of the Canadian Health Measures Survey, and associations with age, sex, education and household income were examined.

    Description:

    From 1980 to 2017, Canada welcomed 1,088,000 refugees, an average of about 30,000 per year. For many refugees, homeownership is an important milestone in their path to social and economic integration. This article in the Economic Insights series highlights new data on homeownership among residents who came to Canada as resettled refugees. It reports on how the stock of refugee-owned housing in Vancouver and Toronto compares to that of Canadian-born residents, highlighting differences in property values across various segments of the housing market. Information on the location, age and size of properties and on the age and income of property owners is used to assess relative differences in property values between the two groups. Estimates are based on data developed by the Canadian Housing Statistics Program, released in December 2018.

    Description:

    This article in the Economic Insights series examines the impact of the Canada–United States border and the potential effects of changing the trade costs it imposes between and within the two countries at a fine geographical scale. The analysis is based on a structural gravity model of trade estimated using Statistics Canada’s Surface Transportation File and the United States Census Bureau’s Commodity Flow Survey. The model estimates the general equilibrium effects that Canada–United States border costs have on trade patterns and welfare, which can be illustrated at a fine regional scale. Maps are used to depict how increases and decreases in border frictions affect not only Canada–United States trade, but also domestic trade flows. The maps show considerable regional variation in both types of trade when conditions at the border change.

    Description:

    This publication presents an overview of recent economic developments in the provinces and territories. The overview covers several broad areas: 1) gross domestic product (GDP) by income and by expenditure, 2) GDP by industry, 3) labour productivity and other related variables.

    The publication examines trends in the major aggregates that comprise GDP, both income- and expenditure-based, as well as prices and the financing of economic activity by institutional sector. GDP is also examined by industry. The productivity estimates are meant to assist in the analysis of the short-run relationship among the fluctuations of output, employment, compensation and hours worked. Some issues also contain more technical articles, explaining national accounts methodology or analysing a particular aspect of the economy.

    This publication carries the detailed analyses, charts and statistical tables that, prior to its first issue, were released in The Daily (11-001-XIE) under the headings Provincial Economic Accounts and Provincial Gross Domestic Product by industry.
