  • Stats in brief: 11-627-M2020057
    Description:

    Staying apart from their parents and grandparents has been one of the hardest adjustments that Canadians have had to deal with since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the older population being at greater risk of infection and death from this disease. For months, most of them followed the quarantine rules, by staying home and adapting their behaviours to the infectious nature of the COVID-19. While before the outbreak visiting with one's parents was a relatively simple decision, it has since become a more delicate one. Studies have attempted to assess the risk of the virus transmission based on the frequency of intergenerational in-person contacts before the physical distancing recommendations were implemented.

    This infographic provides a snapshot of the frequency and the duration of visits between adult children and their parent(s) in Canada. The results refer to Canadians who were aged 25 to 64, who were not living with their parents, and who had at least one biological or adoptive parent alive at the time of the surveys.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had unprecedented impacts on many key aspects of life, such as health, social connections, mobility, employment and incomes. Life satisfaction provides the best available umbrella measure of the combined effects of these changes on the well-being of Canadians.

    Description:

    In the past, the Bank of Canada (the Bank) and Statistics Canada both produced aggregate measures of borrowing, or credit, for sectors of the Canadian economy. The Statistics Canada measures were on a quarterly basis as part of the National Balance Sheet Accounts (NBSA) whereas the Bank of Canada published monthly statistics. While both estimates are drawn from the same data sources and paint a similar picture of the indebtedness of Canadian households and non-financial businesses, some reconcilable differences existed in the aggregate measures. Starting in December 2020 Statistics Canada will be producing monthly estimates that will be integrated into the larger NBSA framework. This will provide users with a single and consistent set of monthly estimates that align with the internationally recognized national accounting principles detailed in the United Nations System of National Accounts This guide will serve as a review of the historical differences between each organization's credit aggregates, the conceptual and statistical changes that will occur as a result of the integration of monthly estimates within the NBSA, and a detailed overview of the methods that will be employed to estimate the outstanding credit debt of households and non-financial private corporations by lending sector.

    Description:

    Statistics Canada has undertaken a broad range of initiatives designed to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on Canadians. This research paper highlights experimental methods designed to measure the impact of the pandemic on month-by-month family income trends of Canadians long before detailed annual statistics become available. The approach integrates weekly earnings available from the Canadian Labour Force Survey (LFS) together with information specific to government transfers including special COVID-19 benefits collected through administrative data sources and imputation. The objective is to shed light on the impact of labour market disruptions on Canadians and their families and the extent to which emergency benefits introduced by the government offset these disruptions. This paper describes the data sources used, estimation strategies employed, initial results, limitations, and potential future developments.

    Using data collected in 2018 from the Survey of Safety in Public and Private Spaces, this article identifies areas of vulnerability to disproportionate impacts of COVID-19 on the LGBTQ2+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-spirit and other diverse sexual and gender identities) population. Pre-pandemic differences in secure attachment to housing and financial security relative to the cisgender heterosexual (non-LGBTQ2+) population, could mean that LGBTQ2+ Canadians will have more difficulty coping with the additional social and economic stressors of COVID-19.

    Description:

    This paper constructs a probability-proportional-to-size (PPS) ranked-set sample from a stratified population. A PPS-ranked-set sample partitions the units in a PPS sample into groups of similar observations. The construction of similar groups relies on relative positions (ranks) of units in small comparison sets. Hence, the ranks induce more structure (stratification) in the sample in addition to the data structure created by unequal selection probabilities in a PPS sample. This added data structure makes the PPS-ranked-set sample more informative then a PPS-sample. The stratified PPS-ranked-set sample is constructed by selecting a PPS-ranked-set sample from each stratum population. The paper constructs unbiased estimators for the population mean, total and their variances. The new sampling design is applied to apple production data to estimate the total apple production in Turkey.

    Description:

    In many large-scale surveys, estimates are produced for numerous small domains defined by cross-classifications of demographic, geographic and other variables. Even though the overall sample size of such surveys might be very large, samples sizes for domains are sometimes too small for reliable estimation. We propose an improved estimation approach that is applicable when “natural” or qualitative relationships (such as orderings or other inequality constraints) can be formulated for the domain means at the population level. We stay within a design-based inferential framework but impose constraints representing these relationships on the sample-based estimates. The resulting constrained domain estimator is shown to be design consistent and asymptotically normally distributed as long as the constraints are asymptotically satisfied at the population level. The estimator and its associated variance estimator are readily implemented in practice. The applicability of the method is illustrated on data from the 2015 U.S. National Survey of College Graduates.
