    Description:

    Estimation of the means of a characteristic for a population at different points in time, based on a series of repeated surveys, is briefly reviewed. By imposing a stochastic parametric model on these means, it is possible to estimate the parameters of the model and to obtain alternative estimators of the means themselves. We describe the case where the population means follow an autoregressive-moving average (ARMA) process and the survey errors can also be formulated as an ARMA process. An example using data from the Canadian Travel Survey is presented.

    Description:

    Estimation of total numbers of hogs and pigs, sows and gilts, and cattle and calves in a state is studied using data obtained in the June Enumerative Survey conducted by the National Agricultural Statistics Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It is possible to construct six different estimators using the June Enumerative Survey data. Three estimators involve data from area samples and three estimators combine data from list-frame and area-frame surveys. A rotation sampling scheme is used for the area frame portion of the June Enumerative Survey. Using data from the five years, 1982 through 1986, covariances among the estimators for different years are estimated. A composite estimator is proposed for the livestock numbers. The composite estimator is obtained by a generalized least-squares regression of the vector of different yearly estimators on an appropriate set of dummy variables. The composite estimator is designed to yield estimates for livestock inventories that are “at the same level” as the official estimates made by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    Description:

    This paper develops a design consistent small domain estimator using a random effects model. The mean squared error of this estimator is then evaluated without assuming the random effect component of the model is correct. Data from a complex sample survey shows how this approach to mean squared error estimation, while perhaps too instable to be used directly, can be employed to determine whether the design consistent small domain estimator proposed here is better than the conventional design-based estimator.

  • 7,306. Postal address analysis Archived
    Articles and reports: 12-001-X198800214584
    Description:

    When we examine postal addresses as they might appear in an administrative file, we discover a complex syntax, a lack of standards, various ambiguities and many errors. Therefore, postal addresses represent a real challenge to any computer system using them. PAAS (Postal Address Analysis System) is currently under development at Statistics Canada and aims to replace an aging routine used throughout the Bureau to decode postal addresses. PAAS will provide a means by which computer applications will obtain the address components, the standardized version of these components and the corresponding Address Search Key (ASK).

    Description:

    The methods used to control the quality of Statistics Canada’s survey processing operations generally involve acceptance sampling by attributes with rectifying inspection, contained within the broader framework of Acceptance Control. Although these methods are recognized as good corrective procedures, they do little in themselves to prevent errors from recurring. As this is of the utmost importance in any quality program, the Quality Control Processing System (QCPS) has been designed with error prevention as one of its primary focuses. Accordingly, the system produces feedback reports and graphs for operators, supervisors and managers involved in the various operations. The system also produces information concerning changes in the inspection environments which enable methodologists to adjust inspection plans/procedures in accordance with the strategy of Acceptance Control. This paper highlights the main tabulation and estimation features of the QCPS and the manner in which it serves to support the principal quality control programs at Statistics Canada. Major capabilities from a methodological and systems perspective are discussed.

    Description:

    A generalized implementation of a method for performing automated coding is described. Traditionally, coding has been performed manually by specially trained personnel, but recently computerized systems have appeared which either eliminate or substantially reduce the need for manual coding. Typically, such systems are limited in use to those applications for which they were originally designed. The system presented here may be used by any application to perform coding of English or French text using any classification scheme.

    Description:

    The QUID system, which was designed and developed by INSEE (Paris) Institut National de la Statistique et des Études Économiques- National Statistics and Economic Studies Institute, is an automatic coding system for survey data collected in the form of literal headings expressed in the terminology of the respondent. The system hinges on the use of a very wide knowledge base made up of real phrases coded by experts. This study deals primarily with the preliminary automatic standardization processing of the phrases, and then with the algorithm used to organize the phrase base into an optimized tree pattern. A sorting example is provided in the form of an illustration. At present, the processing of additional coding variables used to complement the information contained in the phrases presents certain difficulties, and these will be examined in detail. The QUID 2 project, an updated version of the system, will be discussed briefly.

    Description:

    Suppose that undercount rates in a census have been estimated and that block-level estimates of the undercount have been computed. It may then be desirable to create a new roster of households incorporating the estimated omissions. It is proposed here that such a roster be created by weighting the enumerated households. The household weights are constrained by linear equations representing the desired total counts of persons in each estimation class and the desired total count of households. Weights are then calculated that satisfy the constraints while making the fitted table as close as possible to the raw data. The procedure may be regarded as an extension of the standard “raking” methodology to situations where the constraints do not refer to the margins of a contingency table. Continuous as well as discrete covariates may be used in the adjustment, and it is possible to check directly whether the constraints can be satisfied. Methods are proposed for the use of weighted data for various Census purposes, and for adjustment of covariate information on characteristics of omitted households, such as income, that are not directly considered in undercount estimation.

    Description:

    It has been well-documented that postsecondary graduates, on average, earn considerably more than others. Consequently, increasing postsecondary enrollment among youth from lower-income families—through targeted student aid or community outreach programs—may constitute an effective mechanism for promoting upward income mobility. However, there currently exists no evidence of the benefits of a postsecondary education (PSE) for youth from lower-income families per se. Using postsecondary administrative records and income tax records, this study bridges this information gap by estimating the association between earnings and PSE by level of parental income among a cohort of Ontario postsecondary graduates and a comparison group of Ontario youth who did not enroll in a postsecondary institution.

    Description:

    Using data from Statistics Canada’s Canadian Employer–Employee Dynamics Database (CEEDD), this paper has three objectives: (1) determining how the number of jobs created or destroyed by immigrant-owned private incorporated companies compared with that of firms with Canadian-born owners, (2) determining whether immigrant-owned firms were more likely than firms with Canadian-born owners to be high growth firms or rapidly shrinking firms, and (3) determining which immigrant characteristics were associated with a higher likelihood of immigrant-owned firms being high growth firms or rapidly shrinking firms.

    This paper addresses gross job creation (jobs created by expanding continuing firms and entering firms), gross job destruction (jobs terminated by contracting continuing firms and exiting firms), and net job change (the difference between gross job creation and gross job destruction).
