Data fusion with stratified sampling techniques. Strata based on the Census, surveys from Statistics Canada, the RTS survey from Numeris, and others are linked to the strata derived from demographic information at the postal code geographic level. Thereafter, income, debt and asset patterns are modeled from survey data to general population. Structural coherence is essential in selecting geographic level and the integration process. We have applied techniques from statistics, dynamics, data mining and other disciplines, including multi-staged and adaptive nonlinear methods for dimension reduction, effective statistical distance functions and coherent structural approximations.

Data sources include Royal LePage’s Quarterly Survey of Canadian Housing Price, Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), Statistics Canada, Cleanlist, municipal building permits statistics and trends, and the Numeris RTS survey.
