Postal CodeOM Conversion File Plus (PCCF+) version 7A: Revised SAS Program / Version 7A
Two errors in the PCCF+ 7A SAS code were identified as follows:
The first error resulted in some income quintiles being misclassified. The income information was being merged using the 2006 DAuid instead of the 2016 DAuid. This error does not impact the majority of dissemination areas (DAs) since DAs have a high correspondence from one census to the next (Statistics Canada, Correspondence Files, Reference Guide – Census year 2011; Census year 2016; Catalogue no. 92-156-G).
The second error resulted in some variables (FED16uid, Fed16name and CSDtype) not being initialized within the SAS code due to name changes. This resulted in the removal of these variables from the final geocoded output file.
Since the SAS input data files in PCCF+ version 7A were not affected by this error, a new version of the full product was not created. Instead, the SAS program has been revised to correct these errors. Users should replace PCCFplus_7A_v1.sas file with the PCCFplus_7A_v2.sas in order to resolve these errors.
