    Description:

    Empirical Bayes techniques are applied to the problem of “small area” estimation of proportions. Such methods have been previously used to advantage in a variety of situations, as described, for example, by Morris (1983). The basic idea here consists of incorporating random effects and nested random effects into models which reflect the complex structure of a multi-stage sample design, as was originally proposed by Dempster and Tomberlin (1980). Estimates of proportions can be obtained, together with associated estimates of uncertainty. These techniques are applied to simulated data in a Monte Carlo study which compares several available techniques for small area estimation.

    Description:

    A randomized response model for sampling from dichotomous populations is developed in this paper. The model permits the use of continuous randomization and multiple trials per respondent. The special case of randomization with normal distributions is considered, and a computer simulation of such a sampling procedure is presented as an initial exploration into the effects such a scheme has on the amount of information in the sample. A portable electronic device is discussed which would implement the presented model. The results of a study taken, using the electronic randomizing device, is presented. The results show that randomized response sampling is a superior technique to direct questioning for at least some sensitive questions.

    Description:

    Estimation procedures for obtaining consistent estimators of the parameters of a generalized logistic function and of its asymptotic covariance matrix under complex survey designs are presented. A correction in the Taylor estimator of the covariance matrix is made to produce a positive definite covariance matrix. The correction also reduces the small sample bias. The estimation procedure is first presented for cluster sampling and then extended to more complex situations. A Monte Carlo study is conducted to examine the small sample properties of F-tests constructed from alternative covariance matrices. The maximum likelihood estimation method where the survey design is completely ignored is compared with the usual Taylor’s series expansion method and with the modified Taylor procedure.

    Description:

    The paper describes a Monte Carlo study of simultaneous confidence interval procedures for k > 2 proportions, under a model of two-stage cluster sampling. The procedures investigated include: (i) standard multinomial intervals; (ii) Scheffé intervals based on sample estimates of the variances of cell proportions; (iii) Quesenberry-Hurst intervals adapted for clustered data using Rao and Scott’s first and second order adjustments to X^2; (iv) simple Bonferroni intervals; (v) Bonferroni intervals based on transformations of the estimated proportions; (vi) Bonferroni intervals computed using the critical points of Student’s t. In several realistic situations, actual coverage rates of the multinomial procedures were found to be seriously depressed compared to the nominal rate. The best performing intervals, from the point of view of coverage rates and coverage symmetry (an extension of an idea due to Jennings), were the t-based Bonferroni intervals derived using log and logit transformations. Of the Scheffé-like procedures, the best performance was provided by Quesenberry-Hurst intervals in combination with first-order Rao-Scott adjustments.

    Description:

    During the past 10 years or so, rapid progress has been made in the development of statistical methods of analysing survey data that take account of the complexity of survey design. This progress has been particularly evident in the analysis of cross-classified count data. Developments in this area have included weighted least squares estimation of generalized linear models and associated Wald tests of goodness of fit and subhypotheses, corrections to standard chi-squared or likelihood ratio tests under loglinear models or logistic regression models involving a binary response variable, and jackknifed chisquared tests. This paper illustrates the use of various extensions of these methods on data from complex surveys. The method of Scott, Rao and Thomas (1989) for weighted regression involving singular covariance matrices is applied to data from the Canada Health Survey (1978-79). Methods for logistic regression models are extended to Box-Cox models involving power transformations of cell odds ratios, and their use is illustrated on data from the Canadian Labour Force Survey. Methods for testing equality of parameters in two logistic regression models, corresponding to two time points, are applied to data from the Canadian Labour Force Survey. Finally, a general class of polytomous response models is studied, and corrected chi-squared tests are applied to data from the Canada Health Survey (1978-79). Software to implement these methods using the SAS facilities on a main frame computer is briefly described.

    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).

    The last global financial crisis revealed some important data gaps in countries’ statistics to properly assess the build-up of risk and the interconnectedness in financial markets. These gaps have led to the development of a series of initiatives at the international level with clear deliverables to enhance the quality of the information produced by countries in the area of financial investment statistics, including statistics on securities. The initiative undertaken at Statistics Canada to enhance securities statistics has produced many benefits with important expansions in terms of additional characteristics of instruments issued and held by Canadians, additional sector details as well as increased frequency and timeliness.

    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.
