Sensitivity of small area estimators to misclassification and conceptual differences of variables: CS11-614/85-42E-PDF

"This paper discusses the problems encountered with the reconciliation of data from two administrative files at Statistics Canada and Revenue Canada considered as possible sources for producing small area statistics, related to Business Income and Wages and Salaries. It also investigates the impact of conceptual differences and discrepancies in industrial classification between the two files, on a set of small area estimators. This latter analysis is complemented by a simulation study carried out on unincorporated business data in the Accommodation industry from Nova Scotia and Ontario to produce Wages and Salaries estimates at the Census Division level"--Introduction, p. 1.
