    Description:

    This article is a critical review of recent developments in the evaluation of the reliability of provisional national accounts estimates. First, we will sketch a theoretical outline of the process used to produce successive estimates of an aggregate, and will reflect upon its implications regarding the design of the analyses of errors in provisional data. Second, particular attention will be focused upon the choice of elementary measurements of errors and suitable integrative accuracy indices, and the impact of revisions on constant price aggregates and implicit deflationary factors. Finally, the results of some empirical analysis on discordances between provisional and revised estimates will be summarily discussed on the basis of a comparison of national accounts data in Canada, Italy, and the United States.

    Description:

    This paper develops a framework for estimating a system of linear equations with survey data. Pure design-based sample survey theory makes little sense in this context, but some of the techniques developed under this theory can be incorporated into robust model-based estimation strategies. Variance estimators with the form of the single equation “linearization” estimator are nearly unbiased under many complex error structures. Moreover, the inclusion of sampling weights in regression estimation can protect against the possibility of missing regressors. In some situations, however, the existence of missing regressors can make the estimation of a system of equations ambiguous.

    Description:

    The current Survey of Employment, Payroll and Hours, conducted by the Labour Division of Statistics Canada is a major monthly survey collecting data from a large sample of business establishments. This paper describes the methodology of the survey. The description of the stratification, sample size determination and allocation procedures is brief, whereas the description of the rotation procedure is more detailed because of its complexity. Some of the possible simplifications of the design are also highlighted.

    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.

    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.

    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:

    Historical works allow readers to peer into the past, not only to satisfy our curiosity about “the way things were,” but also to see how far we’ve come, and to learn from the past. For Statistics Canada, such works are also opportunities to commemorate the agency’s contributions to Canada and its people, and serve as a reminder that an institution such as this continues to evolve each and every day.

    On the occasion of Statistics Canada’s 100th anniversary in 2018, Standing on the shoulders of giants: History of Statistics Canada: 1970 to 2008, builds on the work of two significant publications on the history of the agency, picking up the story in 1970 and carrying it through the next 36 years, until 2008. To that end, when enough time has passed to allow for sufficient objectivity, it will again be time to document the agency’s next chapter as it continues to tell Canada’s story in numbers.

    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.
