  1. Chuck Humphrey Atlantic DLI Training March 14, 2002 Canadian Travel Survey, 1998 Throughout 1998, Statistics Canada interviewed approximately 180,000 Canadians across the country about their trips in Canada, about themselves and their households. The Canadian Travel Survey provides a yardstick for identifying who is travelling, the types of trips they are taking and how much they are spending. The Daily.Tuesday, August 29, 2000

  2. Canadian Travel Survey, 1998 These findings will provide valuable clues to the tourism industry decision-makers in business and government about how they can market Canada to Canadians through marketing strategies, advertising and product development. The Canadian Travel Survey: Domestic Travel (87-212-XIE, $20; 87-212-XPB, $47) is now available. The Daily.Tuesday, August 29, 2000

  3. CANSIM II The following CANSIM II tables are created from the Canadian Travel Survey: Table 426-0001 Domestic travel by prov, cma Table 426-0002 Traveller characteristics Table 426-0003 Travel char. by prov of distin Table 426-0004 Travel char. by prov visited Table 426-0005 Reallocated expenditures Table 426-0006 Activity participation

  4. Travel Defined • Same-day trips of 80km or more (40km in Ontario) • All overnight trips regardless of distance

  5. CTS Microdata Files • Person • Trip • Person-Trip • Person-Visit • Census Division • Census Metropolitan Area • Province • Tourism Region

  6. Non-travellers Travellers Person Microdata File Contains travellers and non-travellers Labour Force Survey Sample

  7. Person Microdata File • Each person is in the file only once • Includes people who are travellers (TOTTRIP > 0) and non-travellers (TOTTRIP = 0) • The total count of all non-travellers and travellers adds to the non-institutionalized Canadian population aged 15 and over in each monthly file (Jan-Nov) and in the annual file (Dec)

  8. Person Microdata File • This file contains the volume of travellers and non-travellers but not the volume of trips • Only the person weight can be used with this file or when linked with records from the TRIP file • Person files cannot be combined across months; the data cannot be added over months

  9. Unit of Analysis: Person Conceptual • social unit: single social entity, vis., non-institutionalized persons who 15 years or older • time: single point in time, vis., each month within 1998 • spatial: Canada

  10. Unit of Analysis: Person Structural • one file: one record for each person • flat, rectangular data file with no complex structure

  11. Person Microdata File • LRECL = 77 • Number of Variables = 30 • Number of Suppressed Variables = 4 • age, occup, indust, rescsd 19980100001 226.72532222 523126 10100010141001 0010010100 19980100002 611.74572222 211215 20200010111001 0010010100 19980100003 271.01382222 322115 10102000011001 0010010000 19980100004 660.73622222 523124 10200000021001 0010010000 19980100005 1016.47512222 311246 10200010151001 0010010100

  12. Person Non-travellers Travellers Trip Key: linkable via UNIQID Trip Microdata File

  13. Trip Microdata File • One record exists for each trip taken by travellers • Can be analyzed only when linked with the Person file • Linkage is performed using the unique person id (UNIQID) • Sort the Person file by UNIQID • Sort the Trip file by UNIQID and TRIPNUM

  14. Trip Microdata File • Duplicate records of the same traveller have to be eliminated on the basis of selected trip characteristics to avoid double-counting • The trip file cannot be analyzed alone; no weight variable is included in this file • Must be merged with the Person file and the Person weight used

  15. Trip Microdata File • The December trip files contains only trip information for those who travelled in December and cannot be used with annual information from the Person December file.

  16. Unit of Analysis: Trip Conceptual • social unit: transactional observations, i.e., observed when a person goes on a trip • time: one or more times within a month • spatial: Canada

  17. Unit of Analysis: Trip Structural • one file: one record for each trip taken • relational: n to 1 • one or more trip records for one traveller in the person file

  18. Trip Microdata File • LRECL = 257 • Number of Variables = 104 • Number of Suppressed Variables = 3 • orcsd, decsd, foodpre 1998010000101 1001 0010013520 535504 210501010000200000000000000000200000000000000000000200000000200000000000000000000000000000021421 11 1 0 000000000000000000000400002001525 0008500000001900010000000000000194010000000000

  19. Person-trip Microdata File • One record exists for each traveller for each trip • There are adult and child records in this file • One record for adults from the same household regardless of the number of adults and one record for children from the same household regardless of the number of children who travelled

  20. Person-trip Microdata File • This file allows calculating person-trip or household-trip information • The person-trip concept is used to measure the total number of trips combined with the total number of people who went on the trip • When compiling person-trip information, the Person-trip weight must be used (PTRIPWT)

  21. Person-trip Microdata File • A household-trip is defined as a trip involving one or more persons from the same household leaving and returning together • The household-trip concept is used to measure the total number of trips. • The household-trip weight variable must be used when compiling household information (HHTRIPWT)

  22. Person-trip Microdata File • Both the person-trip and household-trip information provided in monthly files is additive • Reported expenditures are only available in the Person-Trip file • When compiling expenditure data, only the household-trip weight can be used because these expenditures represent household expenses and not just traveller’s expenses

  23. Unit of Analysis: Person-trip Conceptual • social unit: transactional observations, representing a traveller and a trip • time: one or more times within a month, and months can be combined • spatial: Canada

  24. Unit of Analysis: Person-trip Structural • one file: a record represents a traveller (adult or child) and a trip • crossed: person by trip • hierarchical • adult-child records in an hierarchy

  25. Person-trip Microdata File • LRECL = 310 • Number of Variables = 127 • Number of Suppressed Variables = 6 • age, occup, indust, orcsd, decsd, foodpre 199801000010101 226.7253 226.7253 523126 10100010141001 0010013520 535504 21050101000302020200200000000000000000200000000000000000000200000000200000000000000000000000000000021421 11 1 0 000000000000000000000400002001525 0008500000001900010000000000000194010000000000

  26. Key: linkable via UNIQID & TRIPNUM Person-visit Microdata File Person-trip Visit

  27. Visit Microdata File • A visit is defined as location of destination of the trip whether for an overnight stay of the traveller or a same-day trip • A visit can be a part or the whole trip • The visit concept is used to measure the number of person-visits who went to a specific location

  28. Visit Microdata File • Visit information is provided at four different geographic levels: CD, CMA, Province and Tourism Region. • Each monthly visit file also contains reallocated expenditure information representing the money spent in each location • The person-visit information is additive across monthly files

  29. Visit Microdata File • To use the information in the person-visit file, the information must be linked with the person-trip file of the same month. • Linkage with the person-trip file • Sort the person-trip file by: • MONTH, UNIQID, TRIPNUM, ADCH • Sort the visit file by: • MONTH, UNIQID, TRIPNUM, ADCH, REXPROV, REALTYPE • Link by UNIQID and TRIPNUM

  30. Visit Microdata File • When compiling visit information, the person-trip weight (PTRIPWT) must be used. • When compiling reallocated expenditures information, the household-trip weight (HHTRIPWT) must be used.

  31. Unit of Analysis: Person-visit Conceptual • social unit: transactional observations, representing a visit to a destination • time: one or more times within a month, and months can be combined • spatial: organized around Province, CMA, CD, and Tourism Region

  32. Unit of Analysis: Person-visit Structural • one file: a record represents a visit to a destination • relational: n to 1 • one or more visit records, based on destination, for each trip in the person-trip file

  33. Visit Microdata Files • LRECL = 146 • Number of Variables = 37 • Number of Suppressed Variables = 3 • weight, hhtripwt, rfoodpre 19980100001010011 10 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001525 000000000000000000000000000000015250
