    This article examines the activities during the 12 months prior to September 2018 for 15- to 29-year-olds who were not in employment, education or training (NEET) in that month. The analysis is based on the one-time addition of questions on this topic to the Labour Force Survey in September 2018. At that time, 11.3% of young Canadians between 15 and 29 were NEET.

    Description:

    The empirical predictor under an area level version of the generalized linear mixed model (GLMM) is extensively used in small area estimation (SAE) for counts. However, this approach does not use the sampling weights or clustering information that are essential for valid inference given the informative samples produced by modern complex survey designs. This paper describes an SAE method that incorporates this sampling information when estimating small area proportions or counts under an area level version of the GLMM. The approach is further extended under a spatial dependent version of the GLMM (SGLMM). The mean squared error (MSE) estimation for this method is also discussed. This SAE method is then applied to estimate the extent of household poverty in different districts of the rural part of the state of Uttar Pradesh in India by linking data from the 2011-12 Household Consumer Expenditure Survey collected by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) of India, and the 2011 Indian Population Census. Results from this application indicate a substantial gain in precision for the new methods compared to the direct survey estimates.

    Description:

    Conceptual arguments and examples are presented suggesting that the Bayesian approach to survey inference can address the many and varied challenges of survey analysis. Bayesian models that incorporate features of the complex design can yield inferences that are relevant for the specific data set obtained, but also have good repeated-sampling properties. Examples focus on the role of auxiliary variables and sampling weights, and methods for handling nonresponse. The article offers ten top reasons for favoring the Bayesian approach to survey inference.

    Description:

    We provide a critical review and some extended discussions on theoretical and practical issues with analysis of non-probability survey samples. We attempt to present rigorous inferential frameworks and valid statistical procedures under commonly used assumptions, and address issues on the justification and verification of assumptions in practical applications. Some current methodological developments are showcased, and problems which require further investigation are mentioned. While the focus of the paper is on non-probability samples, the essential role of probability survey samples with rich and relevant information on auxiliary variables is highlighted.

    Description:

    Non-probability surveys play an increasing role in survey research. Wu’s essay ably brings together the many tools available when assuming the non-response is conditionally independent of the study variable. In this commentary, I explore how to integrate Wu’s insights in a broader framework that encompasses the case in which non-response depends on the study variable, a case that is particularly dangerous in non-probabilistic polling.

    This discussion attempts to add to Wu’s review of inference from non-probability samples, as well as to highlighting aspects that are likely avenues for useful additional work. It concludes with a call for an organized stable of high-quality probability surveys that will be focused on providing adjustment information for non-probability surveys.

    Description:

    Strong assumptions are required to make inferences about a finite population from a nonprobability sample. Statistics from a nonprobability sample should be accompanied by evidence that the assumptions are met and that point estimates and confidence intervals are fit for use. I describe some diagnostics that can be used to assess the model assumptions, and discuss issues to consider when deciding whether to use data from a nonprobability sample.

    Description:

    Non-probability samples are deprived of the powerful design probability for randomization-based inference. This deprivation, however, encourages us to take advantage of a natural divine probability that comes with any finite population. A key metric from this perspective is the data defect correlation (ddc), which is the model-free finite-population correlation between the individual’s sample inclusion indicator and the individual’s attribute being sampled. A data generating mechanism is equivalent to a probability sampling, in terms of design effect, if and only if its corresponding ddc is of N-1/2 (stochastic) order, where N is the population size (Meng, 2018). Consequently, existing valid linear estimation methods for non-probability samples can be recast as various strategies to miniaturize the ddc down to the N-1/2 order. The quasi design-based methods accomplish this task by diminishing the variability among the N inclusion propensities via weighting. The super-population model-based approach achieves the same goal through reducing the variability of the N individual attributes by replacing them with their residuals from a regression model. The doubly robust estimators enjoy their celebrated property because a correlation is zero whenever one of the variables being correlated is constant, regardless of which one. Understanding the commonality of these methods through ddc also helps us see clearly the possibility of “double-plus robustness”: a valid estimation without relying on the full validity of either the regression model or the estimated inclusion propensity, neither of which is guaranteed because both rely on device probability. The insight generated by ddc also suggests counterbalancing sub-sampling, a strategy aimed at creating a miniature of the population out of a non-probability sample, and with favorable quality-quantity trade-off because mean-squared errors are much more sensitive to ddc than to the sample size, especially for large populations.

    Description:

    Statistical inference with non-probability survey samples is a notoriously challenging problem in statistics. We introduce two new methods of nonparametric propensity score technique for weighting in the non-probability samples. One is the information projection approach and the other is the uniform calibration in the reproducing kernel Hilbert space.
