  • Stats in brief: 82-624-X201600114667
    Description:

    This article describes the impact on age-standardized cancer incidence and mortality rates of an update to the standard population used to derive them. The impact is assessed by cancer type and by province for 2012, and on trends in cancer rates from 1992 to 2012. Data are from the Canadian Cancer Registry and the Canadian Vital Statistics – Death Database.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201600714645
    Description:

    The data are from the Canadian Cancer Registry, with mortality follow-up through record linkage to the Canadian Vital Statistics Death Database. Increases in five-year relative survival ratios between 1992-to-1994 and 2006-to-2008 were calculated by age and sex for all leukemias combined and for each of the main types.

  • Articles and reports: 82-624-X201600114548
    Description:

    This article presents national data on the annual rates of newly diagnosed cases of prostate cancer (incidence) and deaths due to this cancer (mortality) from 1995 to 2012. Trends in rates are presented for all ages combined and by age groups. The age distribution of both prostate cancer incidence and mortality in 2012 is compared to corresponding data from 1995.

  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201600414491
    Description:

    Based on data from the Canadian Cancer Registry, this report examines sex-specific differences in survival for all cancers combined and for 18 specific individual cancers or cancer groups. In addition to age-specific analyses, results are examined by time period of diagnosis.

    Description:

    The U.S. Census Bureau is researching uses of administrative records in survey and decennial operations in order to reduce costs and respondent burden while preserving data quality. One potential use of administrative records is to utilize the data when race and Hispanic origin responses are missing. When federal and third party administrative records are compiled, race and Hispanic origin responses are not always the same for an individual across different administrative records sources. We explore different sets of business rules used to assign one race and one Hispanic response when these responses are discrepant across sources. We also describe the characteristics of individuals with matching, non-matching, and missing race and Hispanic origin data across several demographic, household, and contextual variables. We find that minorities, especially Hispanics, are more likely to have non-matching Hispanic origin and race responses in administrative records than in the 2010 Census. Hispanics are less likely to have missing Hispanic origin data but more likely to have missing race data in administrative records. Non-Hispanic Asians and non-Hispanic Pacific Islanders are more likely to have missing race and Hispanic origin data in administrative records. Younger individuals, renters, individuals living in households with two or more people, individuals who responded to the census in the nonresponse follow-up operation, and individuals residing in urban areas are more likely to have non-matching race and Hispanic origin responses.

    Description:

    The Institute for Employment Research (IAB) is the research unit of the German Federal Employment Agency. Via the Research Data Centre (FDZ) at the IAB, administrative and survey data on individuals and establishments are provided to researchers. In cooperation with the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA), the FDZ has implemented the Job Submission Application (JoSuA) environment which enables researchers to submit jobs for remote data execution through a custom-built web interface. Moreover, two types of user-generated output files may be distinguished within the JoSuA environment which allows for faster and more efficient disclosure review services.

  • Articles and reports: 11-522-X201700014735
    Description:

    Microdata dissemination normally requires data reduction and modification methods be applied, and the degree to which these methods are applied depend on the control methods that will be required to access and use the data. An approach that is in some circumstances more suitable for accessing data for statistical purposes is secure computation, which involves computing analytic functions on encrypted data without the need to decrypt the underlying source data to run a statistical analysis. This approach also allows multiple sites to contribute data while providing strong privacy guarantees. This way the data can be pooled and contributors can compute analytic functions without either party knowing their inputs. We explain how secure computation can be applied in practical contexts, with some theoretical results and real healthcare examples.

  • Articles and reports: 11-522-X201700014739
    Description:

    Vital statistics datasets such as the Canadian Mortality Database lack identifiers for certain populations of interest such as First Nations, Métis and Inuit. Record linkage between vital statistics and survey or other administrative datasets can circumvent this limitation. This paper describes a linkage between the Canadian Mortality Database and the 2006 Census of the Population and the planned analysis using the linked data.
