  2. Part 1: 2011 Census and National Household Survey – General Description / differences Communication plans / update for census and National Household Survey (NHS) What is going on out in the field? Response rates to date – What's next? Key findings from consultation Part 2: 2011 Census dissemination Census release strategy More finalized products and services line and 'walk-through' of web module with prototypes for 2011 Census web module and current / future web dissemination initiatives and opportunities Presentation outline DLI National Training Day

Part 3: 2011 National Household Survey (Dissemination and release strategy) Proposed NHS dissemination and release strategy principles Data quality and methodological considerations Release strategy framework 2016? Part 4: DLI – specific issues Impact on DLI community – full-cumulative profile; all levels of geography down to DA … GIS-based projects Scope and future of 'free' products NHS – Geography products General questions / comments / feedback … Presentation outline (concluded) DLI National Training Day

  4. 2A and NHS Traditional mandatory census 2A form – two language questions added for knowledge and language spoken most often at home Former 2B (1 in 5 hhlds sample) replaced with voluntary National Household Survey National Household Survey same questions as the planned 2B; however, sample sized increased to 1 in 3 hhlds People completing the census 2A form online will be asked to complete the NHS if they are part of the sample – 2A questions completed on line will be copied over to the NHS form NHS form mail-out to begin first week of June Part 1: 2011 Census and NHS – General DLI National Training Day

  5. Communication plans / updates Paid advertising campaign began Tuesday, May 3, 2011 Main vehicle – radio stations across the country, will continue May through to August – message will change throughout the summer Census message will gradually switch focus to 'mandatory' Working with thousands of organizations (Fed., Prov., Terr., municipal, etc.) to help educate and promote (extensively more than in 2006) … websites, inserts in mail-outs, etc. Media … interviews ongoing (HO and RO senior staff), focus on certain target groups within the population, joint / integrated regional and head office efforts Currently, a limited amount of negative publicity and reaction – monitoring closely Proactive with media to update incorrect information Part 1: 2011 Census and NHS – General (continued) DLI National Training Day

  6. What's going on out in the field? Response rates to date? Status of early enumeration and NHS success rate (27,000 hhlds) Census collection Mail-out was May 3 Drop-off started May 2 As of week of May 23 … Internet responses; overall May 10 – first reminder and early non-response follow-up began NHS collection (if in sample – invite to 'continue' with NHS online) As of week of May 23 … Internet responses; overall Mail-out first week of June First follow-up in July / August June 21 – follow up with subsample and focus where response is lower, follow up as many times and as evenly as possible Collective enumeration – 55,000 collective dwellings enumerated with census questionnaire only Reserve enumeration – fewer reserves estimated to be incompletely enumerated in 2011 There were 22 reserves incompletely enumerated in 2006, down from 30 in 2001 and 77 in 1996 Part 1: 2011 Census and NHS – General (continued) DLI National Training Day

  7. Key findings from consultation – Overall Census Positive feedback overall on the 2006 release strategy New census products and increased liberation of data well received Inform on product and concept changes early in the cycle Many support shorter analysis for faster results Phasing out CD-ROMs and paper not an issue for most Maintain wealth of reference documents / notes Geography Geography product line improvements appreciated Road Network File should be aligned with provincial frameworks Introduce user-defined thematic mapping functionality online Part 1: 2011 Census and NHS – General (continued) DLI National Training Day

  8. Key findings from consultation – DLI specific Show the relationship between census years and census data products; connect the metadata to facilitate online searching Post a product release schedule Communicate concept, geographical changes; centralize the information Harmonize UIDs between census and geography products Historical comparability important; maintain consistency Do not eliminate GeoSuitefor 2011 and make information available in a platform neutral environment Introduce 'road class' in Road Network File Part 1: 2011 Census and NHS – General (concluded) DLI National Training Day

  9. Census release strategy Similar dissemination strategy to the 2006 Census (short form), with additional language content Part 2: 2011 Census dissemination DLI National Training Day

  10. Census release strategy Initial products available on 'day of release'; expanded analysis / lower-levels of geography to follow Continued national, regional and local media partnerships and coverage Release no. 3 – Families, households and marital status … Foster children / families, 'blended' families, 'step' families Release no. 4 – Language … additional 'first-time' considerations / challenges compared to 2006 Census: Mother tongue – two write-ins (to be coded / certified) Knowledge of official languages – new 2A question Language spoken most often at home (a) – new 2A question, two write-ins Language spoken regularly at home (b) – new 2A question, two write-ins Additional requirements for briefing notes, explanatory information, guidelines for historical comparability, etc. Responses – don't know what to expect – first time block of three language questions on the short form Part 2: 2011 Census dissemination DLI National Training Day

  28. Census and the NHS in 'Social Media' Social Media initiatives began with 'Twitter' announcements and the development of a Mobile site, which included a scaled-down version of 2006 Census Community Profiles Looking to expand the mobile offerings in 2011 by perhaps offering scaled-down tables for each of the census and NHS releases along with data highlights Expand number of 'Tweets' during 2011 Census and NHS releases to announce / promote available data and information Researching possible 'Facebook' postings and potentially organizing 'Webinars' to announce / promote the census and NHS releases Mobile 'Apps' not currently being considered however, may be in the future 2011 Census products and services line DLI National Training Day

  29. Census Web Module and current / future web dissemination initiatives and opportunities Census Web Module returns to 2011 Census dissemination 'focus' (Fall 2011) – PROTOTYPE Census Web Module as of the release of the 2011 Census Population and Dwelling Counts (February 8, 2012) – PROTOTYPE Census Web Module – we will focus on basic enhancements / updates (i.e., back-end – integrated DB across all applications / products) Incorporation of StatCan initiatives Data visualization and Social Media Integrated web mapping application Web content historical storage Improvements / integration to searching / navigation Web application data integration – census / other surveys, etc. Common database model to support CANSIM and census dissemination programs Expansion of census applications (i.e., Discussion forums / BLOGs, TBTs and Community Profile-type products) for non-census clients 2011 Census products and services line DLI National Training Day

  30. Proposed NHS dissemination and release strategy principles Will make available as much information as possible from the NHS subject to confidentiality and data quality Will not proactively publish information where we know that there is a problem that makes the data unusable Will provide indicators to inform users of the data quality Products and services line will be similar to the 2006 Census (except where data quality is an issue) Part 3: 2011 National Household Survey (Dissemination and release strategy) DLI National Training Day

  31. Non-response targeted follow-up Allocate non-response follow-up (NRFU) sample optimally to account for response patterns at the time of sample selection Adjust allocation to better target groups known to be at risk of poor response (e.g., immigrants, Aboriginal people, low income) Will use other auxiliary data sources to guide the imputation approach Continued refinement of options to reduce non-response bias Data quality and methodological considerations DLI National Training Day

  32. Assessing the quality of the NHS results begins with early evaluation of the NHS data starting with collection (non-response rates) Certification (evaluation) of the data Will certify NHS results for each question and down to the census metropolitan area (wherever possible) Will compare NHS data with previous censuses Will use a more extensive range of other data sources to assess the 'reasonableness' of the NHS data: E.g., Citizenship and Immigration Canada data, Longitudinal Immigration Database, tax data, population projections, etc. Data quality and methodological considerations DLI National Training Day

  33. Separate NHS Web Module to be developed A tiered approach to the release of products NHS General User's Guide NHS Analysis, Cross-tabulations, Profiles, Dictionary, Reference guides Basic information and analysis to be released first More detailed products will follow (e.g., tabulations / profiles at lower geographic levels) Microdata file for the RDC, NHS PUMF Custom products and services Initial releases will focus on specific NHS themes complemented by a set of release products … proposed release groupings Immigration and Ethnocultural Diversity (1st release) Aboriginal Peoples (1st release) Labour, Education, Place of work / Commuting to work (2nd release) Income, Housing (3rd release) NHS release strategy framework DLI National Training Day

  34. Group tasked with delivering options and ultimately a recommendation on the methodology for the 2016 Census to the federal government Assessment of: International census models Legislative considerations (constitutional, statutory, internal obligations) Content determination framework (relevancy, access, respondent burden, privacy) 'Canadian context' … infrastructure and support data source in Canada Very tight timeframe for delivery of findings / recommendations National Statistics Council, 2016 Census Strategy Steering Committee 2016 DLI National Training Day

  35. Impact on DLI community – full cumulative profile all levels of geography down to DA … GIS-based projects Scope and future of 'free' products NHS – Geography products General questions / comments / feedback … Part 4: DLI – Specific issues DLI National Training Day
