    Description:

    Influential observations in logistic regression are those that have a notable effect on certain aspects of the model fit. Large sample size alone does not eliminate this concern; it is still important to examine potentially influential observations, especially in complex survey data. This paper describes a straightforward algorithm for examining potentially influential observations in complex survey data using SAS software. This algorithm was applied in a study using the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey that examined factors associated with family physician utilization for adolescents.

    Description:

    This article provides information on the care provided by caregivers to seniors with a long-term health condition, a disability or problems related to aging. It focuses on how the intensity and nature of the care vary depending on seniors’ type of housing. Four types of housing are examined: care facilities, supportive housing, private households separate from the caregiver, and private households shared with the caregiver.

  • Articles and reports: 85-002-X201300111766
    Description:

    This Juristat article on violence against women is organized into four sections: prevalence and severity of violence against women, risk factors associated with violence against women, impact of violence against women and responses to violence against women.

    To provide a comprehensive picture of the extent and nature of violence against women, both police-reported crime data and self-reported victimization data are used. The analysis also draws on information from two administrative surveys, namely the Transition Home Survey and the Victims Services Survey.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200710613188
    Description:

    More than 160,000 non-profit and voluntary institutions provide employment for about two million Canadians. These organizations constitute one of the faster growing sectors of the Canadian economy, accounting for 7% of gross domestic product in 2003. They come in a variety of forms and deliver goods and services in many areas. However, their use of labour in most cases differs radically from that of profit-oriented businesses. This study describes and quantifies the multiple labour inputs used by non-profits.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200610813169
    Description:

    Over the last four decades, the dramatic increase in dual-earner couples has also engendered an increase in wives as primary breadwinners. These women tend to be older and more educated than women who are secondary earners, and they are more frequently found in managerial and professional occupations. The article examines the earnings and characteristics of primary- and secondary-earner spouses.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X20060019181
    Description:

    This article uses data from the General Social Survey (GSS) and the 2002 Ethnic Diversity Survey (EDS) to track the religious views and practices of Canadians and identify those groups most likely to be religious. An index of religiosity is developed based on the presence of religious affiliation, frequency of attendance at religious services, frequency of private religious practices and the importance of religion to the respondent.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200510213136
    Description:

    Over the past several decades, women have made significant inroads into many traditionally male-dominated occupations. One of these is university teaching. The article looks at the growth in the number of women teaching full time at Canadian universities between 1990-91 and 2002-03, examining changes in their representation by academic rank, tenure, and field of instruction.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X20040037733
    Description:

    This article provides a broad snapshot of the outlooks and activities of Canadians in 2003 in three areas: a sense of belonging to Canada, to their province, and to their community; confidence in public institutions such as the health care system and the federal parliament; and trust in others. It is an adaptation of 2003 General Social Survey on Social Engagement, Cycle 17: An Overview of Findings (Statistics Canada Catalogue no. 89-598-XWE).

  • Articles and reports: 85-002-X20040048403
    Description:

    This Juristat presents the results of the Hate Crime Pilot Survey undertaken by the CCJS in collaboration with 12 major police forces across the country. This paper also draws on other available data sources in order to provide contextual information on hate crime and quantify its occurrence.

  • Technical products: 11-522-X20010016268
    Description:

    This paper discusses in detail issues dealing with the technical aspects of designing and conducting surveys. It is intended for an audience of survey methodologists.

    This paper deals with non-response bias, discussing a few approaches in this field. It is demonstrated that non-response bias as to voter turnout is lower in a survey on living conditions than in a purely political survey. In addition, auxiliary information from registrations is used to investigate non-response and its bias among ethnic groups. Response rates among ethnic minority groups are rather low, but there is no evidence that response rates are less in lower social class areas. Correcting for limited socioeconomic deviations does not affect the distributions of political preference.
