Miscellanea, Methodological Problems in Designing Continuous Business Surveys: Some Canadian Experiences

Abstract:
Methodological problems associated with designing continuous business surveys are similar to the problems encountered in other continuing surveys. However, there are some problems which arise primarily because of the dynamic nature of the population of businesses and are more closely associated with continuing business surveys than with other surveys. Problems relating to the construction of sampling frames, sample selection and rotation, implementation of changes in classification information, and outliers are discussed. The purpose of this article is to highlight the problems rather than provide complete solutions.

Keywords:
Sampling frame; rotation; outliers; classification; establishment.
