The development of model-based estimates of unemployment for the Yukon: CS11-616/85-76E-PDF

"Beginning in July 1981 the Labour Force Survey was extended to the Territory of the Yukon on an experimental basis. Subsequently, evaluation of the estimates obtained from the pilot survey revealed serious problems with both the survey's tracking of the Yukon population in the field and with the population projections used to weight the survey estimates. The adverse effect of these factors on the reliability of the survey estimates, and the inability in the short term to resolve the population estimation problem, made the permanent extension of the LFS to the Yukon distinctly problematical. The pilot was accordingly suspended in March 1983. Efforts since then have concentrated largely on developing model-based approaches to estimating unemployment for the Yukon. The aim of this report is to document some of those efforts and to summarize the results to date"--p. 1.
