Sampling designs for the Unified Enterprise Surveys: CS11-617/01-3E-PDF

the early years /

"The new Unified Enterprise Survey (UBS) integrates many of Statistics Canada annual surveys. This survey has been modified annually since its implementation in 1997. Some survey concepts and methods used in the sampling cycles remain substantially the same from year to year. These include the use of a single frame, a two-phase approach, the stratification algorithm, the use of random numbers for selection and the sample allocation, but some have been modified. Among these, a new method of determining the coefficient of variation for multi-purpose surveys has been developed for reference year 1999. Also, for UES 2000, new strategies have been developed; one to meet different industry specifications in term of precision and the second for controlling response burden"--Abstract.
