Does Tony Clement fully understand statistics? To use his logic, if Evangelists in a Calgary neighbourhood stop answering the census long form questionnaire, we'll just ask more Catholics. They are all the same, right?
Which is why proper weighting will be used, as always the case RT @stephenfgordon Wrong. Large samples can't fix sample selection biases.
Wrong. Statisticians can ensure validity w larger sample size RT @Harbles However the statistical randomness is gone making the data skewed
@wicary Actually the Long Form is still around & will be going to more Cdns--minus the state coercion.
