    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:

    Singh and Srivastava (1973) proposed a linear unbiased estimator of the population mean when sampling on successive occasions using several auxiliary variables whose known population means remain unchanged for all occasions. In this paper, three composite estimators T_1, T_2 and T_3, each utilising an auxiliary variable whose known population mean changes from one occasion to the next, are presented for the estimation of the current population total. The proposed estimators are compared with the ordinary estimator, T_0, and the usual successive sampling estimator, T \prime, of the current population total without the use of auxiliary information. We find that using auxiliary information in conjunction with successive sampling does not always uniformly produce a gain in efficiency over T_0 or T \prime. However, when applied to a survey of teak plantations to estimate the mean height of teak trees, T_1, T_2 and T_3 proved more efficient than T_0 and T \prime.

    Description:

    This paper discusses the influence of the sampling design on the estimation of a linear regression model. Particularly, sampling designs will be discussed which are dependent on the values of the endogenous variable in the population: endogenous (or “informative”) designs. A consistent estimator of the regression coefficients is given. Its variance is the sum of a sampling design component and a disturbance term component. Also, model-free regression is briefly discussed. The model-free regression estimator is the same as the model estimator in the case of an endogenous design.

    Description:

    The Canadian Health and Disability Survey, administered as a supplement to the Canadian Labour Force Survey in October 1983, collected data on potentially disabled persons by means of a screening questionnaire and a follow-up questionnaire for those screened-in. The data from the screening questionnaire, consisting of a set of activities of daily living, were used to group respondents according to identifiable characteristics. A description of the groups of respondents is provided along with an evaluation of the methods used in their determination. An incompletely ordered severity scale is proposed.

    Description:

    The seasonal adjustment of a time series is not a straightforward procedure particularly when the level of a series nearly doubles in just one year. The 1981-82 recession had a very sudden great impact not only on the structure of the series but on the estimation of the trend- cycle and seasonal components at the end of the series. Serious seasonal adjustment problems can occur. For instance: the selection of the wrong decomposition model may produce underadjustment in the seasonally high months and overadjustment in the seasonally low months. The wrong decomposition model may also signal a false turning point. This article analyses these two aspects of the interplay between a severe recession and seasonal adjustment.

    Description:

    Nearly all surveys and censuses are subject to two types of nonresponse: unit (total) and item (partial). Several methods of compensating for nonresponse have been developed in an attempt to reduce the bias associated with nonresponse. This paper summarizes the nonresponse adjustment procedures used at the U.S. Census Bureau, focusing on unit nonresponse. Some discussion of current and future research in this area is also included.

    Description:

    From an annual sample of U.S. corporate tax returns, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service provides estimates of population and subpopulation totals for several hundred financial items. The basic sample design is highly stratified and fairly complex. Starting with the 1981 and 1982 samples, the design was altered to include a double sampling procedure. This was motivated by the need for better allocation of resources, in an environment of shrinking budgets. Items not observed in the subsample are predicted, using a modified hot deck imputation procedure. The present paper describes the design, estimation, and evaluation of the effects of the new procedure.

    Description:

    The Canadian Census of Construction (COC) uses a complex plan for sampling small businesses (those having a gross income of less than $750,000). Stratified samples are drawn from overlapping frames. Two subsamples are selected independently from one of the samples, and more detailed information is collected on the businesses in the subsamples. There are two possible methods of estimating totals for the variables collected in the subsamples. The first approach is to determine weights based on sampling rates. A number of different weights must be used. The second approach is to impute values to the businesses included in the sample but not in the subsamples. This approach creates a complete “rectangular” sample file, and a single weight may then be used to produce estimates for the population. This “large-scale imputation” technique is presently applied for the Census of Construction. The purpose of the study is to compare the figures obtained using various estimation techniques with the estimates produced by means of large-scale imputation.

    Description:

    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.

    Administered in 2013, the Canadian Forces Mental Health Survey (CFMHS) included the same set of items to assess coping as the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) and the CCHS-Canadian Forces Supplement. This study's objectives were to (1) provide a descriptive analysis of the extent to which members of the CAF Regular Force use these various coping strategies, (2) examine the factorial structure of these items, and (3) assess the resulting coping factors by examining their concurrent validity with theoretically-related indicators and examining differences along key demographic and military characteristics. Ultimately, the study aimed to shed light onto a coping typology that could guide the development of indicators for use in future coping research based on the CFMHS.

    Description:

    Canada has a relatively large foreign-born population, and the country’s economic prosperity depends on international trade. This paper examines how these two characteristics are linked. Specifically, it investigates the effect of immigrant business ownership on international trade in Canada.

    Understanding the impact of immigrants on international trade is particularly important for Canada, as it is a small open economy with a relatively large immigrant population. This paper empirically investigates the effect of immigrant business ownership on international trade in Canada using a newly developed firm-level database with detailed business ownership and trade information. The new data make it possible to better distinguish between the effect immigrants have on reducing information costs and on product demand, and to assess the impact of immigrant business ownership on the extensive and intensive margins of international trade.
