Sexual Harassment Statistics / Data

Question
Lookinig for sexual harassment statistics and/or data.  Finding sexual assault info.  I can find lots of articles discussing the difference between the two.  Suggestions for sources of this harassment info?

One useful site atThe Canadian Bar Association B C Branch has this webpage is quite illuminating.  https://www.cbabc.org/For-the-Public/Dial-A-Law/Scripts/Employment-and-Social-Benefits/271

Answer
Angus Reid Institute did a survey in 2014 on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace (https://search2.odesi.ca/#/details?uri=%2Fodesi%2Fari-sex-harassment-E-2014.xml) which is available in .

Also, the GSS on victimization (Cycles 28 (2014), 23 (2009), 18 (2004), and 13 (1999)) may have some variables on sexual harassment.

Additionally, I found what appears to be an excellent survey from Australia which won't give us the Canadian data but does look very informative.  May be of interest to people.

Population Centre -Defining Thresholds for Population Density

Question:
I have had a question from a researcher who is looking at population density and is confused by the definitions provided for the 2016 “Population  Centre”  Classification.

The definition on the website notes that a “population centre” is  an area with a population of at least 1,000 and a density of 400 or more people per square kilometre.

There is also some discussion of using “a secondary population density threshold,” but the researcher is having a challenging trying to determine what the upper threshold is. Would someone be able to help?

Answer:
Subject matter has responded with the following:

“Please refer your client to the Census Dictionary discussion on POPCTR. Here they will find the 3 thresholds and a more comprehensive explanation on the concept. Please let us know if you have any follow up questions.”

Inclusion in the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS)

Question:
I have a researcher who is interested in the scope of 'loss of productivity' measures in CCHS 2015 and 2016 for British Columbia--what the depth of coverage is. I see LoP is listed in the guides but no idea as to the number/robustness of responses.

Answer:
We’ve received the following response from subject matter:

“For the “loss of productivity” module that you are interested in, the universe for these questions are limited to respondents aged 15 to 75. In 2015-2016 LOP was only selected by BC, if you look in the 2015-2016 PUMF data dictionary the frequency in the LOP questions will represent only those within BC.”
