  • 7,291. On maternity leave Archived
    Articles and reports: 75-001-X19890022275
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The fertility rate continues to decline but interest in maternity leave is growing as more women of child bearing age join the labour force. This article looks at maternity absences among working women by age, education and province. It also explores the links between the fertility rate and maternity absences and between compensation and length of absence.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada is currently rebuilding its central register of economic entities. The new register views each economic entity as a network of legal and operating entities whose characteristics allow for the delineation of statistical entities. This network view, the profile, is determined through the ‘profiling’ process which involves contact with the economic entity. In 1986 a list of all entities in-scope for a profiling contact was required so that profiles could be obtained to initialize the new register. Administrative data were used to build this list. In the future, administrative data will be a source of information on changes that may have happened to economic entities. They may thus be used as a source of direct update or as a signal that a review of the structure of an entity is required. The paper begins with the objectives of the profiling process. The procedures for constructing the frame for the initial profiling process using several administrative data sources are then presented. These procedures include the application of concepts, the detection of overlap between sources, and the evaluation of data quality. Next, the role of administrative data in providing information on changes to business entities and in requesting profiles to be verified is presented. Then the results of a simulation study done to assess this role are reviewed. Finally, the paper concludes with a series of questions on the methodology of using administrative data to maintain profiles.

    Description:

    The Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) is a new Census Bureau panel survey designed to provide data on the economic situation of persons and families in the United States. The basic datum of SIPP is monthly income, which is reported for each month of the four-month reference period preceding the interview month. The SIPP Record Check Study uses administrative record data to estimate the quality of SIPP estimates for a variety of income sources and transfer programs. The project uses computerized record matching to identify SIPP sample persons in four states who are on record as having received payments from any of nine state or Federal programs, and then compares survey-reported dates and amounts of payments with official record values. The paper describes the project in detail and presents some early findings.

    Description:

    The Census Bureau makes extensive use of administrative records information in its various economic programs. Although the volume of records processed annually is vast, even larger numbers will be received during the census years. Census Bureau mainframe computers perform quality control (QC) tabulations on the data; however, since such a large number of QC tables are needed and resources for programming are limited and costly, a comprehensive mainframe QC system is difficult to attain. Add to this the sensitive nature of the data and the potentially very negative ramifications from erroneous data, and the need becomes quite apparent for a sophisticated quality assurance system on the microcomputer level. Such a system is being developed by the Economic Surveys Division and will be in place for the 1987 administrative records data files. The automated quality assurance system integrates micro and mainframe computer technology. Administrative records data are received weekly and processed initially through mainframe QC programs. The mainframe output is transferred to a microcomputer and formatted specifically for importation to a spreadsheet program. Systematic quality verification occurs within the spreadsheet structure, as data review, error detection, and report generation are accomplished automatically. As a result of shifting processes from mainframe to microcomputer environments, the system eases the burden on the programming staff, increases the flexibility of the analytical staff, and reduces processing costs on the mainframe and provides the comprehensive quality assurance component for administrative records.

    Description:

    Let A x B be the product space of two sets A and B which is divided into matches (pairs representing the same entity) and nonmatches (pairs representing different entities). Linkage rules are those that divide A x B into links (designated matches), possible links (pairs for which we delay a decision), and nonlinks (designated nonmatches). Under fixed bounds on the error rates, Fellegi and Sunter (1969) provided a linkage rule that is optimal in the sense that it minimizes the set of possible links. The optimality is dependent on knowledge of certain probabilities that are used in a crucial likelihood ratio. In applying the record linkage model, an independence assumption is often made that allows estimation of the probabilities. If the assumption is not met, then a record linkage procedure using estimates computed under the assumption may not be optimal. This paper contains an examination of methods for adjusting linkage rules when the independence assumption is not valid. The presentation takes the form of an empirical analysis of lists of businesses for which the truth of matches is known. The number of possible links obtained using standard and adjusted computational procedures may be dependent on different samples. Bootstrap methods (Efron 1987) are used to examine the variation due to different samples.

    Description:

    The experience of the four Nordic countries illustrates the advantages and disadvantages of a register-based census of population and points to ways in which the disadvantages can be contained. Other countries see major obstacles to a register-based census: the lack of data systems of the kind and quality needed; and public concern about privacy and the power of the State. These issues go far beyond statistics; they concern policy and administration. The paper looks at the situation in two countries, the United Kingdom and Australia. In the United Kingdom past initiatives aimed at population registration in peacetime foundered and the present environment is hostile to any new initiative. But the government is going ahead with a controversial reform of local taxation that involves setting up new registers. In Australia the government tabled a Bill to introduce identity cards and an associated register, and advanced clearcut political arguments to support it; the Bill was later withdrawn. The paper concludes that the issues involved in reforming data systems deserve to be fully discussed and gives reasons why statisticians should take a leading part in the debate.

    Description:

    A typical goal of health workers in the developing world is to ascertain whether or not a population meets certain standards, such as the proportion vaccinated against a certain disease. Because populations tend to be large, and resources and time available for studies limited, it is usually necessary to select a sample from the population and then make estimates regarding the entire population. Depending upon the proportion of the sample individuals who were not vaccinated, a decision will be made as to whether the coverage is adequate or whether additional efforts must be initiated to improve coverage in the population. Several sampling methods are currently in use. Among these is a modified method of cluster sampling recommended by the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) of the World Health Organization. More recently, quality assurance sampling (QAS), a method commonly used for inspecting manufactured products, has been proposed as a potentially useful method for continually monitoring health service programs. In this paper, the QAS method is described and an example of how this type of sampling might be used is provided.

    Description:

    The optimum allocation to strata for multipurpose surveys is often solved in practice by establishing linear variance constraints and then using convex programming to minimize the survey cost. Using the Kuhn-Tucker theorem, this paper gives an expression for the resulting optimum allocation in terms of Lagrangian multipliers. Using this representation, the partial derivative of the cost function with respect to the k-th variance constraint is found to be -2 \alpha_{k^*} g (x^*) / v_k, where g (x^*) is the cost of the optimum allocation and where \alpha_{k^*} and v_k are, respectively, the k-th normalized Lagrangian multiplier and the upper bound on the precision of the k-th variable. Finally, a simple computing algorithm is presented and its convergence properties are discussed. The use of these results in sample design is demonstrated with data from a survey of commercial establishments.

    For Inuit, the term 'livelihood' encompasses work in the wage economy and in the labour that connects them with the land, their culture and their community. The results from the 2017 Aboriginal Peoples Survey presented in this paper highlight how important it is to include land-based economy in any examination of the labour market. Furthermore, these findings suggest the need for policies and programs aimed at improving Inuit employment and related economic outcomes.

    Description:

    This article in the Economic Insights series examines the impact of the Canada–United States border and the potential effects of changing the trade costs it imposes between and within the two countries at a fine geographical scale. The analysis is based on a structural gravity model of trade estimated using Statistics Canada’s Surface Transportation File and the United States Census Bureau’s Commodity Flow Survey. The model estimates the general equilibrium effects that Canada–United States border costs have on trade patterns and welfare, which can be illustrated at a fine regional scale. Maps are used to depict how increases and decreases in border frictions affect not only Canada–United States trade, but also domestic trade flows. The maps show considerable regional variation in both types of trade when conditions at the border change.
