    Description:

    Statistics Canada is currently rebuilding its central register of economic entities. The new register views each economic entity as a network of legal and operating entities whose characteristics allow for the delineation of statistical entities. This network view, the profile, is determined through the ‘profiling’ process which involves contact with the economic entity. In 1986 a list of all entities in-scope for a profiling contact was required so that profiles could be obtained to initialize the new register. Administrative data were used to build this list. In the future, administrative data will be a source of information on changes that may have happened to economic entities. They may thus be used as a source of direct update or as a signal that a review of the structure of an entity is required. The paper begins with the objectives of the profiling process. The procedures for constructing the frame for the initial profiling process using several administrative data sources are then presented. These procedures include the application of concepts, the detection of overlap between sources, and the evaluation of data quality. Next, the role of administrative data in providing information on changes to business entities and in requesting profiles to be verified is presented. Then the results of a simulation study done to assess this role are reviewed. Finally, the paper concludes with a series of questions on the methodology of using administrative data to maintain profiles.

    Description:

    The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is a new Census Bureau panel survey designed to provide data on the economic situation of persons and families in the United States. The basic datum of SIPP is monthly income, which is reported for each month of the four-month reference period preceding the interview month. The SIPP Record Check Study uses administrative record data to estimate the quality of SIPP estimates for a variety of income sources and transfer programs. The project uses computerized record matching to identify SIPP sample persons in four states who are on record as having received payments from any of nine state or Federal programs, and then compares survey-reported dates and amounts of payments with official record values. The paper describes the project in detail and presents some early findings.

    Description:

    The Census Bureau makes extensive use of administrative records information in its various economic programs. Although the volume of records processed annually is vast, even larger numbers will be received during the census years. Census Bureau mainframe computers perform quality control (QC) tabulations on the data; however, since such a large number of QC tables are needed and resources for programming are limited and costly, a comprehensive mainframe QC system is difficult to attain. Add to this the sensitive nature of the data and the potentially very negative ramifications from erroneous data, and the need becomes quite apparent for a sophisticated quality assurance system on the microcomputer level. Such a system is being developed by the Economic Surveys Division and will be in place for the 1987 administrative records data files. The automated quality assurance system integrates micro and mainframe computer technology. Administrative records data are received weekly and processed initially through mainframe QC programs. The mainframe output is transferred to a microcomputer and formatted specifically for importation to a spreadsheet program. Systematic quality verification occurs within the spreadsheet structure, as data review, error detection, and report generation are accomplished automatically. As a result of shifting processes from mainframe to microcomputer environments, the system eases the burden on the programming staff, increases the flexibility of the analytical staff, and reduces processing costs on the mainframe and provides the comprehensive quality assurance component for administrative records.

    Description:

    This article in the Economic Insights series illustrates how real income progressed across the provinces from 1950 to 2016. The performance of the provinces is discussed using a new set of long-run estimates for real gross domestic income per capita. This new dataset allows, for the first time, trends in aggregate real income across the provinces to be examined for the last 66 years. Long-run data allow the amplitude of cycles across time to be demonstrated, and provide sufficient data to understand changes in trends in provincial economies that are sometimes subject to long commodity cycles.

    Description:

    This Juristat article examines a cohort of individuals who died of an illicit drug overdose in the province of British Columbia, with a special focus on the City of Surrey, between 2011 and 2016, and explores the nature and extent of their contact with the criminal justice system as a person accused of a crime. This analysis brings together data provided by the British Columbia Coroners Service with policing data from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey, and criminal court data from the Integrated Criminal Court Survey. Identifying the primary risk factors and those at greatest risk of preventable illicit drug-related deaths will help support the development of evidence-informed interventions, precision programming and policies aimed at preventing future overdoses and saving lives.

    Description:

    This study uses the new remoteness index (RI) classification, which assigns a value to each census subdivision (CSD) and measures the relative remoteness of Canadian communities on the basis of their size and their proximity to surrounding population centres, to distinguish rural and remote areas from urban areas in Canada. The Canadian Vital Statistics-Death Database (2011 to 2015), and the 2016 Census of Population are also used in this study to examine major causes of both preventable and treatable mortality by relative remoteness of Canadian communities. It explores the interrelationship between remoteness and avoidable mortality while taking into account three important variables: average household income after-tax, the proportion of postsecondary graduates and the proportion of Aboriginal population by CSD.

    Geography: Province or territory
    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.

    Departmental Plans (DP) are individual expenditure plans for each department and agency. These reports provide increased levels of detail over a three-year period on an organization's main priorities by strategic outcome, program and planned/expected results, including links to related resource requirements presented in the Main Estimates. In conjunction with the Main Estimates, Departmental Plans serve to inform members of Parliament on planned expenditures of departments and agencies, and support Parliament's consideration of supply bills. The DPs are typically tabled soon after the Main Estimates by the President of the Treasury Board.
