Dr. Ostry said planning on a ew, more comprehensive sur- y questionnaire started alwut o years ago. It would cas- for enumerators to handle id would produce a wider mgc of statistics about cm- oymcnt and unemployment. The current labor force sur- eys cost .Statistics Canada iout million a year. If Ihe ore elaborate surveys are un- crtaken, they will cost about W illion a year. Dr. Ostry said the statistics urcau has anked the govern- ment for th3 funds, and "if we ct the funding, il will take bout years to test the new uestionnaire." A similar revision was re- ently by the United tales. The new data being pro- uced there "didn't change the icasurc of unemployment" hut avc the statisticians a broader ange of data. The bureau now undertakes special surveys of cm- yloyment and unemployment matters, asking questions about ncomc, labor mobility, con- sumer expenditure, and the rc- ationship between the unem- ployed and heads of households. These would more regular under the new system, 't would also not try to probe into people's attitudes, but strn- >ly ask direct objective ques- tions, Dr. Ostry raid.
