    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 provides new and current insights into the behaviour of Canadian businesses as they meet the cyber security challenges of a changing world. It presents information on how businesses are exposed to cyber security risks and threats, the impact cybercrime had on business operations in 2017, the reporting practices of businesses and the types of security measures businesses invest in to protect against cybercrime. Where appropriate, the article compares data from the Canadian Survey of Cyber Security and Cybercrime to the information collected through United Kingdom's Cyber Security Breaches Survey, 2018, to understand whether the experience of Canadian businesses is similar to that of UK Businesses.
