Data sources and methodology

Instrument design

There are two types of information required of labour unions under the Corporations and Labour Unions Returns Act (CALURA): (a) Non-financial data is reported at December 31; (b) Financial data is reported according to a union's fiscal year.

Sampling

This survey is a census with a cross-sectional design.

Data are collected for all units of the target population, therefore, no sampling is done.

Error detection

The non-financial information is compared with previous returns. Also, two executive officers, of the union must attest to the accuracy of the data. The financial questionnaire is signed by the auditors and is supported by audited financial statements.

Estimation

None, as 100% response is required under the Corporations and Labour Unions Returns Act (CALURA).

Disclosure control

Statistics Canada is prohibited by law from releasing any information it collects that could identify any person, business, or organization, unless consent has been given by the respondent or as permitted by the Statistics Act. Various confidentiality rules are applied to all data that are released or published to prevent the publication or disclosure of any information deemed confidential. If necessary, data are suppressed to prevent direct or residual disclosure of identifiable data.
