    Description:

    Findings from the research and testing of telephone and computer assisted survey methods for household surveys are presented, followed by discussion of how these findings will influence the redesign of household surveys at Statistics Canada during the 1990’s. Significant emphasis is given in the presentation to the Canadian Labour Force Survey.

    Description:

    Application of recent developments in computer technology allow national statistical offices to produce high quality statistics in an efficient way. At the Netherlands Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) an increasing use is made of microcomputers in all steps of the statistical production process. This paper discusses the role of software and hardware in data collection, data editing, tabulation, and analysis. To avoid the negative effects of uncontrolled de-centralized data processing, the importance of integration is stressed. This makes the statistical production process easier to manage, and moreover it increases its efficiency. The Blaise System, developed by the CBS, is discussed as a data processing tool that encourages integration. Using a description of the survey questionnaire, this system is able to automatically generate various computer programs for data collection (CAPI or CATI), or data entry and data editing (CADI). The system can also create interfaces to other packages. Particularly, the link between Blaise and the internally developed packages Bascula (for weighting) and Abacus (for tabulation) is described. In this way the Blaise System controls and co-ordinates, and therefore integrates, a large part of the survey process.

    Description:

    The Mitofsky-Waksberg procedure is an efficient method for selecting a self-weighting, random digit dialing (RDD) sample of households. The Mitofsky-Waksberg procedure is sequential, requiring a constant number of households be selected from each cluster. In this article, a modified Mitofsky-Waksberg procedure which is not self-weighting or sequential is described. The bias and variance for estimates derived from the modified procedure are investigated. Suggestions on circumstances which might favor the modified procedure over the standard Mitofsky-Waksberg procedure are provided.

    Description:

    Electronic data collection utilizing touchtone recognition is in place for a monthly establishment survey at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Touchtone Data Entry (TDE) system features digitized phrases requesting respondents to answer questions using the numeric keypad of a touchtone telephone. TDE has substantial implications for lowering survey costs; many labor intensive activities are eliminated. However, little is known about measurement errors associated with this mode of data collection. This study assesses TDE mode error using three sources of data, which allow for analyses of errors associated with selected aspects of the human-machine interface. In addition, instrument design issues associated with mode error are addressed. We conclude by extending the implications of our findings to other surveys.

    Description:

    A chronic problem in the preparation of time critical estimates is the significant limitations inherent in data collection by mail. To address this issue, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has conducted an extensive 7 year research effort into the use of computer assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) and the computer assisted self interviewing (CASI) methods of touchtone and voice recognition self-response. This paper will summarize some of the significant results of this research covering both performance and cost data. The paper will conclude with a discussion of a large scale implementation program of these techniques for a monthly sample of 350,000 establishments.

    For Inuit, the term 'livelihood' encompasses work in the wage economy and in the labour that connects them with the land, their culture and their community. The results from the 2017 Aboriginal Peoples Survey presented in this paper highlight how important it is to include land-based economy in any examination of the labour market. Furthermore, these findings suggest the need for policies and programs aimed at improving Inuit employment and related economic outcomes.

    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 report provides an overview of the definitions and competency frameworks of data literacy, as well as the assessment tools used to measure it. These are based on the existing literature and current practices around the world. Data literacy, or the ability to derive meaningful information from data, is a relatively new concept. However, it is gaining increasing recognition as a vital skillset in the information age. Existing approaches to measuring data literacy—from self-assessment tools to objective measures, and from individual to organizational assessments—are discussed in this report to inform the development of an assessment tool for data literacy in the Canadian public service.
