    Description:

    The scenario considered here is that of a sample survey having the following two major objectives: (1) identification for future follow up studies of n^* subjects in each of H subdomains, and (2) estimation as of this time of conduct of the survey of the level of some characteristic in each of these subdomains. An additional constraint imposed here is that the sample design is restricted to single stage cluster sampling. A variation of single stage cluster sampling called telescopic single stage cluster sampling (TSSCS) had been proposed in an earlier paper (Levy et al. 1989) as a cost effective method of identifying n^* individuals in each sub domain and, in this article, we investigate the statistical properties of TSSCS in crossectional estimation of the level of a population characteristic. In particular, TSSCS is compared to ordinary single stage cluster sampling (OSSCS) with respect to the reliability of estimates at fixed cost. Motivation for this investigation comes from problems faced during the statistical design of the Shanghai Survey of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia (SSADD), an epidemiological study of the prevalence and incidence of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

    Description:

    This paper examines the suitability of a survey-based procedure for estimating populations in small, rural areas. The procedure is a variation of the Housing Unit Method. It employs the use of local experts enlisted to provide information about the demographic characteristics of households randomly selected from residential unit sample frames developed from utility records. The procedure is nonintrusive and less costly than traditional survey data collection efforts. Because the procedure is based on random sampling, confidence intervals can be constructed around the population estimated by the technique. The results of a case study are provided in which the total population is estimated for three unincorporated communities in rural, southern Nevada.

    Description:

    The Address Register is a frame of residential addresses for medium and large urban centres covered by Geography Division’s Area Master File (AMF) at Statistics Canada. For British Columbia, the Address Register was extended to include smaller urban population centres as well as some rural areas. The paper provides an historical overview of the project, its objective as a means of reducing undercoverage in the 1991 Census of Canada, its sources and product, the methodology required for its initial production, the proposed post-censal evaluation and prospects for the future.

    Description:

    The Population Estimates Program of Statistics Canada has traditionally been benchmarked to the most recent census, with no allowance for census coverage error. Because of a significant increase in the level of undercoverage in the 1986 Census, however, Statistics Canada is considering the possibility of adjusting the base population of the estimates program for net census undercoverage. This paper develops and compares four estimators of such a base population: the unadjusted census counts, the adjusted census counts, a preliminary test estimator, and a composite estimator. A generalization of previously-proposed risk functions, known as the Weighted Mean Square Error (WMSE), is used as the basis of comparison. The WMSE applies not only to population totals, but to functions of population totals such as population shares and growth rates between censuses. The use of the WMSE to develop and evaluate small-area estimators in the context of census adjustment is also described.

    Description:

    The present article discusses a model-based approach towards adjustment of the 1988 Census Dress Rehearsal Data collected from test sites in Missouri. The primary objective is to develop procedures that can be used to model data from the 1990 Census Post Enumeration Survey in April, 1991 and smooth survey-based estimates of the adjustment factors. We have proposed in this paper hierarchical Bayes (HB) and empirical Bayes (EB) procedures which meet this objective. The resulting estimators seem to improve consistently on the estimators of the adjustment factors based on dual system estimation (DSE) as well as the smoothed regression estimators.

    Description:

    One way to assess the undercount at subnational levels (e.g. the state level) is to obtain sample data from a post-enumeration survey, and then smooth those data based on a linear model of explanatory variables. The relative importance of sampling-error variances to corresponding model-error variances determines the amount of smoothing. Maximum likelihood estimation can lead to oversmoothing, so making the assessment of undercount over-reliant on the linear model. Restricted maximum likelihood (REML) estimators do not suffer from this drawback. Empirical Bayes prediction of undercount based on REML will be presented in this article, and will be compared to maximum likelihood and a method of moments by both simulation and example. Large-sample distributional properties of the REML estimators allow accurate mean squared prediction errors of the REML-based smoothers to be computed.

    Description:

    The Canadian federal government legalized non-medical cannabis use by adults in October 2018. Ongoing monitoring of the effects of the change is needed because uncertainty remains about the impact of this legislation on cannabis use behaviours and whether the impact will affect some more than others. This study used data from Canadian Alcohol and Drugs Survey and its predecessor to examine longer-term historical rates of use during 2004 to 2017. Five iterations of National Cannabis Surveys (2018/2019) were used to examine current use (overall, daily/almost daily, quantities, and types of products) in the months before and after legalization.

    The cumulative toll of exposure to stressors (psychosocial, chemical, physical) can contribute to disease processes. The concept of allostatic load, essentially the cost of maintaining physiological stability in response to environmental demands, may be useful in assessing broad population health impacts of stressors beyond morbidity and mortality. In this study, allostatic load scores were generated for Canadians using data from cycles 1, 2, and 3 (2007 to 2013) of the Canadian Health Measures Survey, and associations with age, sex, education and household income were examined.

    Description:

    From 1980 to 2017, Canada welcomed 1,088,000 refugees, an average of about 30,000 per year. For many refugees, homeownership is an important milestone in their path to social and economic integration. This article in the Economic Insights series highlights new data on homeownership among residents who came to Canada as resettled refugees. It reports on how the stock of refugee-owned housing in Vancouver and Toronto compares to that of Canadian-born residents, highlighting differences in property values across various segments of the housing market. Information on the location, age and size of properties and on the age and income of property owners is used to assess relative differences in property values between the two groups. Estimates are based on data developed by the Canadian Housing Statistics Program, released in December 2018.

    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.

    Description:

    Historical works allow readers to peer into the past, not only to satisfy our curiosity about “the way things were,” but also to see how far we’ve come, and to learn from the past. For Statistics Canada, such works are also opportunities to commemorate the agency’s contributions to Canada and its people, and serve as a reminder that an institution such as this continues to evolve each and every day.

    On the occasion of Statistics Canada’s 100th anniversary in 2018, Standing on the shoulders of giants: History of Statistics Canada: 1970 to 2008, builds on the work of two significant publications on the history of the agency, picking up the story in 1970 and carrying it through the next 36 years, until 2008. To that end, when enough time has passed to allow for sufficient objectivity, it will again be time to document the agency’s next chapter as it continues to tell Canada’s story in numbers.

    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.
