    Description:

    A hybrid technique is described that employs both conventional and raking ratio estimation to handle the case when the population frequencies N_ij in a two-dimensional table are known, but some of the observed frequencies n_ij are small (or zero). Results are provided on the approach taken as it has evolved in the Corporate Statistics of Income Program over the last several years. Changes are still being considered and these will be discussed as well.

    Description:

    The Hansen-Hurwitz (1943) strategy is known to be inferior to the Horvitz-Thompson (1952) strategy associated with a number of IPPS (inclusion probability proportional to size) sampling procedures. The present paper presents a simpler proof of these results and therefore has some pedagogic interest.

    Description:

    The two-stage rejection rule telephone sample design described by Waksberg (1978) is modified to improve the efficiency of telephone surveys of the U.S. Black population. Experimental tests of sample design alternatives demonstrate that: a) use of rough stratification based on telephone exchange names and states; b) use of large cluster definitions (200 and 400 consecutive numbers) at the first stage; and c) rejection rules based on racial status of the household combine to offer improvements in the relative precision of a sample, given fixed resources. Cost and error models are examined to simulate design alternatives.

    Description:

    This paper presents results from methodological experiments comparing telephone and face-to-face interviewing in surveys of the general population. The relatively low level of telephone ownership in the United Kingdom, especially among the less privileged, argues the need for a dual-mode approach combining telephone interviews with face-to-face interviews for those without telephones. This approach depends on the absence of differential mode-effects on the answers obtained or on the ability to account for these effects when they occur.

    Description:

    Demands for statistics on all aspects of our lives, our society and our economy continue to grow. At the same time statistical agencies share with many respondents a growing concern over the mounting burden of response to surveys. One result of the search for alternative methods of satisfying statistical demands has been an increased emphasis on the use of administrative records for statistical purposes. This paper reviews recent experience at Statistics Canada in this area and discusses obstacles to the greater use of administrative records. Approaches to rendering administrative systems more useful for statistical purposes are reviewed, together with some important concerns related to information protection and record linkage.

    Description:

    The National Agricultural Statistics Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, conducts yield surveys for a variety of field crops in the United States. While field sampling procedures for various crops differ, the same basic survey design is used for all crops. The survey design and current estimators are reviewed. Alternative estimators of yield and production and of the variance of the estimators are presented. Current estimators and alternative estimators are compared, both theoretically and in a Monte Carlo simulation.

    Description:

    This paper discusses three problems that have been a major preoccupation among researchers and practitioners of seasonal adjustment in statistical bureaus for the last ten years. These problems are: (l) the use of concurrent seasonal factors versus seasonal factor forecasts for current seasonal adjustment; (2) finding an optimal pattern of revisions for series seasonally adjusted with concurrent factors; and (3) smoothing highly irregular seasonally adjusted data.

    Description:

    The method of minimum Q^(T) estimation for complex survey designs proposed by Singh (1985) provides asymptotically efficient estimates of model parameters analogous to Neyman’s (1949) min X^2 estimation procedure for simple random samples. The Q^(T) can be viewed as a X^2 type statistic for categorical survey data, and min Q^(T) estimates provide a robust alternative to Weighted Least Squares estimates, which often display unstable behaviour for complex surveys. In this paper, the min Q^(T) method is first described and then illustrated for the problem of estimating parameters of a logit model for survey estimates of unemployment rates which are obtained from the October 1980 Canadian LFS data cross-classified according to age-education covariate categories. It is seen that the trace efficiency of smoothed estimates obtained by Kumar and Rao (1986), who applied the method of pseudo maximum likelihood estimates (pseudo mle) to the same problem can be slightly improved by the min Q^(T) method. Interestingly enough, pseudo mle for individual cells behave much the same way as the efficient min Q^(T) estimates for the particular LFS example.

    Description:

    A new unequal probability sampling scheme for selecting n(> 2) units without replacement from a finite population is proposed. This scheme ensures that the inclusion probabilities are proportional to sizes. It has the advantage of simplicity in selection and estimation and also provides a non-negative variance estimator. The variance of the Horvitz-Thompson (H-T) estimator under the proposed scheme is shown to be smaller than that of the customary estimator in probability proportional to size sampling with replacement. The proposed scheme also compares favourably with the without replacement scheme suggested by Sampford (1967) in an empirical study on a few natural populations.

    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.

    Description:

    The purpose of this paper is to describe the development of the Canadian Active Living Environments (Can-ALE) dataset: a Canada-wide set of four individual and four summary measures that characterize the favourability of active living environments in Canadian communities at the dissemination-area level. This study reports on analyses which guided the selection of measures and derivation data sources for the dataset. The objective was to produce a national database entirely from open data and to evaluate the performance of open data compared with traditional or proprietary sources.

    Description:

    Administered in 2013, the Canadian Forces Mental Health Survey (CFMHS) included the same set of items to assess coping as the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) and the CCHS-Canadian Forces Supplement. This study's objectives were to (1) provide a descriptive analysis of the extent to which members of the CAF Regular Force use these various coping strategies, (2) examine the factorial structure of these items, and (3) assess the resulting coping factors by examining their concurrent validity with theoretically-related indicators and examining differences along key demographic and military characteristics. Ultimately, the study aimed to shed light onto a coping typology that could guide the development of indicators for use in future coping research based on the CFMHS.

    Description:

    Canada has a relatively large foreign-born population, and the country’s economic prosperity depends on international trade. This paper examines how these two characteristics are linked. Specifically, it investigates the effect of immigrant business ownership on international trade in Canada.

    Understanding the impact of immigrants on international trade is particularly important for Canada, as it is a small open economy with a relatively large immigrant population. This paper empirically investigates the effect of immigrant business ownership on international trade in Canada using a newly developed firm-level database with detailed business ownership and trade information. The new data make it possible to better distinguish between the effect immigrants have on reducing information costs and on product demand, and to assess the impact of immigrant business ownership on the extensive and intensive margins of international trade.

    Description:

    The need to measure both the desirable outputs (goods and services) and the undesirable outputs (emissions of greenhouse gases [GHGs] and criteria air contaminants [CACs]) from economic activity is becoming increasingly important as economic performance and environmental performance become ever more intertwined. Standard measures of multifactor productivity (MFP) growth provide insights into rising standards of living and the performance of economies, but they may be misleading if only desirable outputs are considered. This study presents estimates of environmentally adjusted multifactor productivity (EAMFP) growth using a new comprehensive database. This database contains information on GHG and CAC emissions, as well as on the production activities of Canadian manufacturers.
