    Description:

    This paper outlines the growth in advanced technology use that has taken place over the last decade in Canadian manufacturing establishments. It presents the percentage of plants that use any one of the advanced technologies studied and how this has changed between 1989 and 1998. It also investigates how growth rates in the 1990s have varied across different technologies in specific functional areas, such as design and engineering, fabrication, communications, and integration and control. In an attempt to discover how changes in technology use are related to certain plant characteristics, the paper then investigates whether the growth in technology use varies across plants that differ by size, nationality and industry. Multivariate analysis is used to investigate the joint effects of plant size, foreign ownership and industry on the incidence of technology adoption and how these effects have changed over the last decade.

    Description:

    Robust small area estimation is studied under a simple random effects model consisting of a basic (or fixed effects) model and a linking model that treats the fixed effects as realizations of a random variable. Under this model a model-assisted estimator of a small area mean is obtained. This estimator depends on the survey weights and remains design-consistent. A model-based estimator of its mean squared error (MSE) is also obtained. Simulation results suggest that the proposed estimator and Kott's (1989) model-assisted estimator are equally efficient, and that the proposed MSE estimator is often much more stable than Kott's MSE estimator, even under moderate deviations of the linking model. The method is also extended to nested error regression models.

    Description:

    The Gallup Organization has been conducting household surveys to study state-wide prevalences of alcohol and drug (e.g., cocaine, marijuana, etc.) use. Traditional design-based survey estimates of use and dependence for counties and select demographic groups have unacceptably large standard errors because sample sizes in sub-state groups are two small. Synthetic estimation incorporates demographic information and social indicators in estimates of prevalence through an implicit regression model. Synthetic estimates tend to have smaller variances than design-based estimates, but can be very homogeneous across counties when auxiliary variables are homogeneous. Composite estimates for small areas are weighted averages of design-based survey estimates and synthetic estimates. A second problem generally not encountered at the state level but present for sub-state areas and groups concerns estimating standard errors of estimated prevalences that are close to zero. This difficulty affects not only telephone household survey estimates, but also composite estimates. A hierarchical model is proposed to address this problem. Empirical Bayes composite estimators, which incorporate survey weights, of prevalences and jackknife estimators of their mean squared errors are presented and illustrated.

    Description:

    The Employment Insurance Coverage Survey was conducted during 4 months of 1998 to provide information on the ceverage of the jobless and part-time worker population by Employment Insurance. It is a survey of individuals sampled from Labour Force Survey participants; these were interviewed by telephone. The report attempts to answer the following questions: How many unemployed persons has insurable employment? How many have access to the benefits provided by EI? How many are eligible for benefits? Those not covered or not receiving benefits are identified. Finally, what are the alternative sources of revenue of the unemployed? This report analyses the main findings from the survey for Canada. It compares outcomes to the previous years' results. It also presents some beneficiary/unemployed ratio data to put the results in a historical context.

    Description:

    This report, revised in May 1999, describes the Electronic Publications Pilot (EPP) which was conducted to gather knowledge on how library staff and their clients are adjusting to the Internet. The pilot was conducted from September 1996 to September 1997 as a joint initiative of Statistics Canada and the Depository Services Program (DSP), in partnership with the depository library community. The objective of the pilot was to assess the impact of replacing print publications with electronic equivalents via the Internet in DSP libraries. This objective was based on an assumption that the electronic medium will complement print rather than replace it entirely and that departments will continue to produce some print publications in the future. The major conclusions of the pilot cover resources and training, web site feedback, selection of publications for conversion to electronic format, web site access and security, publication functionality and access and archiving.

    Description:

    This series of reports provides detailed statistics and analysis on a variety of topics and issues concerning Canada's justice system. Annual Juristats are produced on areas such as: crime, homicide, youth and adult courts, and corrections. Additional Juristats are also produced each year on current topics of interest to the justice community. This is a unique periodical, of great interest to those who have to plan, establish, administer and evaluate justice programs and projects, or anyone who has an interest in Canada's justice system.

    Description:

    The linkages between university research and its contribution to national and regional economies are not well understood. During the summer of 1998, Statistics Canada conducted a pilot survey of intellectual property (IP) commercialization in the higher education sector to begin to measure some of the contributions. The voluntary questionnaire was sent to 81 universities and degree-granting colleges, of which 74 responded. The results show that most universities participate in a wide variety of activities including identifying, protecting, promoting and commercializing IP.

    Description:

    The distribution of income changes over time, as does the proportion of total income received by different family types. This aritcle examines the relative shares of total family income for different family groups between 1970 and 1995, along with changes in the composition of these groups. It complements the family income study published in the Winter 1998 issue of perspectives.
