Use of the Generalized Edit and Imputation System for the Survey of Family Expenditures: CS11-613/94-1E-PDF

a feasibility study/

"This study was initiated as part of the Methodology and Operational Reviews to Seek Efficiency (MORSE) process. The Generalized Edit and Imputation System (GElS) was considered to have the potential to improve data quality and reduce the level of manual processing that is currently carried out in the Family Expenditures Survey (FAMEX) Edit and Imputation Process. GElS has been developed as part of the Generalized Survey Function Development Project of Statistics Canada. It is a collection of modules which can be put together in order to satisfy the edit and imputation requirements of a survey. It was successfully used the for the Census of Agriculture which constitutes the largest application of GElS in both number of variables and records processed (280,000 agricultural holdings collecting information for some 300 variables)"--p. 1.
