    Description:

    This Juristat article provides an overview of the Canadian Police Performance Metrics Framework. A performance metric is a measurable value that serves as an indicator of how effectively an organization is achieving its key objectives. In policing, a broad spectrum of responsibilities exist ranging from law enforcement, emergency response and crime prevention, to providing assistance to victims and collaborating with external agencies.The information presented in this article represents the results of a review of the literature on measuring police performance, an examination of how Canadian police services are currently using data in public performance reports, and the results of a consultation of Canadian police services on data availability and information needs. The article also includes preliminary results of a pilot project of the feasibility of collecting uniform calls for service data from Canadian police services.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada, Canada’s central statistical agency, has been compiling national mortality statistics, including those on cancer mortality since 1921. Also, cancer incidence data are available from 1969.

    The data quality of these files may be assessed in a variety of ways. Ratios of cancer mortality to incidence give some information on coverage errors. Micro-data matches between incidence and mortality files give an indication of misclassifications. As well, multiple registrations for cancer incidence may be duplicates. Completeness and availability of data items are also important for special studies.

    In this paper, the feasibility of using these measures of data quality and the implications of these measures are discussed.

    Description:

    The Canadian Labour Force Survey is a household survey conducted each month for the purpose of producing point-in-time estimates of the number of persons employed, unemployed and not in the labor force. The survey has a rotating panel design in which all individuals in a sampled household location are interviewed each month, for six consecutive months. In the past, little use has been made of this longitudinal structure, although considerable interest has been expressed in the month-to-month gross flows (transitions) amongst the labour force status categories. In this paper we discuss methods being considered by Statistics Canada for the production of gross flow estimates, but from a model-based perspective.

    Description:

    The peach, sour cherry and the grape objective yield surveys have been carried out annually in the Niagara Peninsula since 1964 in order to forecast the magnitude of change in marketable fruit production from the previous year. Timeliness of the estimates is essential in order to enable the Ontario Tender Fruit Growers Marketing Board (OTFGMB) and the Ontario Grape Growers Marketing Board (OGGMB) to establish the marketing strategies well ahead of the harvest. This paper summarizes the major changes due to the second redesign initiated in 1982. In particular, the sample design, data collection operation and modifications of the estimation procedures are elaborated upon.

    Description:

    This paper describes the procedures used and results of a joint Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) and Statistics Canada project to provide a timely potato acreage estimate for New Brunswick, a major potato producing province in Canada. The project has demonstrated that satellite imagery combined with more traditional potato area estimation procedures can lower respondent burden, produce timely crop distribution maps and produce reliable estimates for subregions.

    Description:

    A theory of sampling on two occasions with unequal probabilities and without replacement is presented. Fellegi’s (1963) method, which yields the same selection probabilities for a given unit on each occasion, is used to select the units for the rotation sample. The variances of composite estimators of the population total on the second occasion are developed. Numerical results are presented for small sample sizes and efficiency comparisons are made with a competing strategy.

    Description:

    The modern statistical survey is an effective method of meeting the ever-increasing demand for timely and accurate data. One important component of the statistical survey is the questionnaire. This article discusses the role of the questionnaire in meeting the needs of users, the relationship of the questionnaire to the other components of survey design, and the effect of the questionnaire on the quality of survey data. The importance of viewing the questionnaire as an integral part of the total survey design is stressed.

    Description:

    Estimates from sample surveys are sometimes required for domains whose boundaries do not coincide with those of design strata. Taking the Canadian Labour Force Survey as an example of a survey utilizing a clustered sample design, some alternative small area estimation techniques available in the literature are evaluated empirically including synthetic, domain (simple and post-stratified) and composite estimators which are linear combinations of synthetic and post-stratified domain estimators. A sample dependent estimator which attaches weight to the post-stratified domain estimate depending on the amount of sample in the domain is proposed and its performance is also evaluated.

    Description:

    This article presents findings from a study to characterize responding and non-responding households in the Labour Force Survey (LFS). This study was motivated by two projects associated with the LFS Redesign, namely, the family estimation project and evaluation of non-response compensation procedures. However, the results of the study are of general interest in the assessment of the quality of data emanating from the LFS.

    Description:

    The paper attempts to evaluate the impact of non-response adjustment by rotation groups on rotation group bias in the estimates from the Canadian Labour Force Survey. Results on bias and non-response characteristics are presented and discussed. An index used to measure rotation group bias is given and some empirical results are analyzed.

    Description:

    Survey data collected by statistical agencies is most likely to be processed through to the tabulation stage by these agencies. The computer programs associated with this processing are also most likely tailored to the particular design and variables used. The statistics computed from such surveys typically range from simple descriptive totals and means to these required for analytic studies such as comparison of domains, regression analysis and contingency tables analysis. This paper describes a computer program which computes these statistics and their associated sampling errors for commonly used sampling designs.
