    Description:

    The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is an ongoing nationally representative household survey program of the Bureau of the Census. The primary purpose of the SIPP is to improve the measurement of information related to the economic situation of households and persons in the United States. It accomplishes this goal through repeated interviews of sample individuals using a short reference period and a probing questionnaire. The multi-interview design of the SIPP raises methodological and statistical issues of concern to all panel surveys of families and persons. This paper reviews these issues as they relate to the SIPP. The topics reviewed are: 1) questionnaire design; 2) data collection, including respondent rules, data collection mode, length of reference period, and rules for following movers; 3) concepts, design, and estimation; and 4) response error.

    Description:

    For a given level of precision, Hidiroglou (1986) provided an algorithm for dividing the population into a take-all stratum and a take-some stratum so as to minimize the overall sample size assuming simple random sampling without replacement in the take-some stratum. Sethi (1963) provided an algorithm for optimum stratification of the population into a number of take-some strata. For the stratification of a highly skewed population, this article presents an iterative algorithm which has as objective the determination of stratification boundaries which split the population into a take-all stratum and a number of take-some strata. These boundaries are computed so as to minimize the resulting sample size given a level of relative precision, simple random sampling without replacement from the take-some strata and use of a power allocation among the take-some strata. The resulting algorithm is a combination of the procedures of Hidiroglou (1986) and Sethi (1963).

    Description:

    Most surveys have many purposes and a hierarchy of six levels is proposed here. Yet most theory and textbooks are based on unipurpose theory, in order to avoid the complexity and conflicts of multipurpose designs. Ten areas of conflict between purposes are shown, then problems and solutions are advanced for each. Compromises and joint solutions fortunately are feasible, because most optima are very flat; also because most “requirements” for precision are actually very flexible. To state and to face the many purposes are preferable to the common practice of hiding behind some artificially picked single purpose; and they have also become more feasible with modern computers.

    Description:

    In spite of·the comparative ease with which studies of error in foreign trade statistics could be conducted, there are few attempts to quantify their size, origin, distribution, and change over time. Policy makers and trade negotiators have little notion of how uncertain these statistics are in spite of their great detail. This paper takes advantage of a World Trade Database developed by Statistics Canada to examine and quantify discrepancies in existing foreign trade statistics.

    Description:

    This paper deals with the nonresponse problem in the estimation of the mean of a finite population, following an approach closely related to that of Cassel, Särndal and Wretman (1983). Two very simple methods are proposed for estimating the individual response probabilities; these are then used, in connection with a superpopulation model, to construct estimators for the population mean. A first evaluation of the properties of the proposed methods is given by a Monte Carlo experiment. The results shed some light on their effectiveness.

    Description:

    Methods are given to estimate functions of the cell probabilities associated with a table of multinomial data that has been randomly rounded to multiples of a given number, say l. We show that: (i) random rounding causes only second order effects on bias and variance; (ii) the loss of efficiency in using the natural estimates of cell probability is negligible provided that the cell entry is large compared with (l^2 - 1) / (6R) where R is the number of cells in the table; and (iii) estimates of apparently exponentially small bias are available for moments of these natural estimates and for polynomials in the cell probabilities.

    Description:

    The biases and stabilities of alternative variance estimators for the two stage random group design (Rao et al. 1962) are evaluated in a Monte Carlo study in the context of Canadian Labour Force Survey. The variance formula for raking ratio estimation procedure is derived using Taylor linearization method. The properties of the variance formula are investigated by a Monte Carlo simulation.

    Because it is easy to use, the “AGEVEN” record makes it possible to date events more precisely and to classify retrospectively demographic events (births and deaths), changes in marital status and changes in place of residence. The data collected are used to accurately recreate the socio-economic conditions that were present when the demographic events being studied took place.

    Description:

    A class of “constrained minimum distance” methods is considered for constraining household weights to be consistent with auxiliary information on the number of persons in various age x race x sex cells. The constrained weights are as close as possible to the initial weights based on the inverse probability of selection. This class of methods includes raking and generalized least square methods, as well as multinomial maximum likelihood, (where the cells of the distribution are household types.) The properties of the methods in the presence of systematic undercoverage of the household types are studied through some simple models for coverage. Comparisons with the principal person method are made and the paper concludes with the observation that it is necessary to know more about the nature of survey undercoverage before deciding on which of the constrained minimum distance or principal person methods is to be preferred in applications.

    This article in the Economic Insights series illustrates how real income progressed across the provinces from 1950 to 2016. The performance of the provinces is discussed using a new set of long-run estimates for real gross domestic income per capita. This new dataset allows, for the first time, trends in aggregate real income across the provinces to be examined for the last 66 years. Long-run data allow the amplitude of cycles across time to be demonstrated, and provide sufficient data to understand changes in trends in provincial economies that are sometimes subject to long commodity cycles.

    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.

    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.

    These analytical products present projections of the diversity of the Canadian population. The purpose of these projections is to paint a potential portrait of the composition of Canada’s population according to different ethnocultural and language characteristics, if certain population growth scenarios were to become reality in the future. Produced using Demosim, a microsimulation model, these projections cover characteristics such as place of birth, generation status, visible minority group, religion and mother tongue.
