Local Patterns of National Household Survey Non-Response in Canadian Cities

EasyChair Preprint no. 297

8 pagesDate: June 22, 2018


Statistics Canada and the Canadian government invoked a dramatic change in the collection of detailed demographic and other data for the Census year 2011. Despite reverting in 2016 to the traditional “long form” census format, the National Household Survey (NHS) of 2011 represents an important and meaningful opportunity for study. Furthermore, with a 10-year gap between instances of the more reliable “long form” survey format, users of detailed census data products face challenges if interested in demographic, economic, social, and other changes that happened between 2006 and 2016 or trends in such data over a period that includes the 2011 NHS. Here we examine patterns of non-response, using the variable Global Non-Response (GNR) in several Canadian cities using dissemination areas (DA) as the unit of analysis. We will also show patterns of similarity and dissimilarity with GNR and other NHS variables (social, demographic, ethnic, housing, etc.).
