1
Using Business Taxation Data as Auxiliary Variables and as Substitution Variables in the Australian Bureau of Statistics Frank Yu, Robert Clark and Gabriele B. Durant

2
Outline of talk Use of tax data in ABS Using tax data as auxiliary variables example: subannual surveys Using tax data as variables of interest missing taxation data example: annual surveys Dealing with missing tax data: Missing at Random Common Error Measurement model Conclusion

3
Use of tax data construct and maintain population frame as auxiliary variables for estimation substitute survey data to reduce provider burden as source for imputing missing/invalid survey data provide independent estimates for validation of outputs

4
Data supplied by Australian Taxation Office Australian Business Register information businesses identified by name, address industry, payees Business Activity Statement data - GST and PAYG data available (90%) 6 months after reference quarter turnover, wage and salaries, capital and non-capital expenses Income Tax data available (70 to 80%)18 months after reference quarter detailed expenses and revenue and balance sheet

5
Use of tax data for frame creation ABS MP ATO MP complex units simple units: ABN = statistical unit from Australian Busines Register ABS Maintained Population ATO maintained population

6
Use of tax data for frame construction construction: units from ABR industry, sector number of payees multistate indicators maintenance: births and cancellation tax roles : e.g. employing vs non-employing units long term non-remitters excluded stratification: single/multiple states, industry

7
Frame auxiliary variables (x i 's) derived size benchmarks: from BAS, based on wage and salaries data used as stratification variables BAS turnover BAS wages need imputation (derived from average of quarterly data) lag reference quarter by 2 quarters

8
Sample Survey BAS dataBIT data concept**** accuracy****** timeliness****** detailed domain****** richness of data items ****** Survey data vs tax data

11
Generalised Regression Estimation

12
Advantages and disadvantages Advantages provide efficiency approximately unbiased does not require X's to be measuring the right concepts does not require X's to be current Disadvantages does not model Y directly e.g. zero units influential points efficiency in estimating levels not equal to efficiency for estimating change

13

14
Issue: inactive/out of scope units Solution: apply GREG to positive units only

15
efficiency for estimating level does not necessarily translate to efficiency for estimating change

16
Data Substitution Approach: Use tax as the variable of interest Assumes tax data are better respondents more serious about getting it right more time to provide information audited accounts (for BIT) for tax purposes Detailed breakdown Missing tax data require matching to frame missingness is non- ignorable ƒ inactive units ƒ late units have more expenses

17
Examples: Economic Activity Survey (annual) 1990s to 05/06 estimation of totals for broad items for microbusinesses tax data as substitution variables augmenting sample for simple businesses tax data to replace broad level income and expenses items estimation of detailed items detailed items imputed by pro-rating broad tax data based on splits observd in surveys

18
Examples: Annual Integrated Collection (06/7 onwards) AIC - core survey estimates estimation of totals for survey variables for small and large businesses tax data as auxiliary variables for generalised regression estimation AIC - complementary estimates estimation of totals for broad items for microbusinesses tax data as substitution variables AIC - complementary estimates estimation of detailed state/industry classes tax data as substitution variables AIC - complementary estimates estimation of detailed economic variables tax data as substitution variables, disaggregated by model estimation of pro-rating factors

19
Notation Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U

20
Use MAR model on frame only Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U model: Y= f(x) for r i = 1 Xi frame variables tax data of interest

21
Use MAR model conditional on frame variables only Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U model: Y= f(x) for r i = 1 impute Y^ = f(x) for r i = 0 Xi MAR

22
But for non-ignorable missingness Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U model: Y= f(x) for r i = 1 impute Y^ = f(x) for r i = 0 Xi

23
Use a sample to inform about the nonreporters based on their survey response. Notation: Use Y to represent tax variables and Y* for survey variables (a surrogate of Y) Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U s Y* available Xi

24
Imputing tax data from survey data Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U s Y* available model: Y= f(Y*, x i ) Xi

25
Imputing tax data from survey data Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U s Y* available model: Y= f(Y*) impute Ŷ model: Y= f(Y*, x i ) Xi

26
Imputing tax data from survey data Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U s Y* available model: Y= f(Y*, x) impute Ŷ =f(Y*, x) Xi

27
Models for Y Missing at Random: Y independent of r given x and Y* Common measurement error: Given Y, distribution of Y* Is independent of r

28
Use MAR model: missing at random given X and Y* Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U s Y* available model: Y= f(Y*, x) for r i = 1 impute Ŷ for r i = 0 Xi MAR

29
Imputation using MAR model 1. Using data on Y and Y* observed from the units in the sample where where both survey and tax data are reported, model Y as a function of Y*. 2. Use this model to impute Y i * for tax non reporters in the sample (assuming Y* is known for them). 3. For units not in the sample, if their tax data is missing, impute using the distribution

30
Use CME model Y available r i = 1 Y not available r i = 0 U s Y* available model: Y*= f(Y, x) for r i = 1 Xi CME invert to get Ŷ = g(Y*) impute Ŷ = h(X) for r i = 0 for i in U\s

31
Imputation using CME model

32
Modelling survey data (Y*) and tax data (Y) - invert this to predict Y from Y*

33
Model: survey data Y* (EAS 05/06) as a function of frame variable X (tax_turn_0405) for tax nonrespondents (i.e. r =0)

34
BLUP impute: Empirical Best Linear Unbiased Predictor (EBLUP) of Y i EBLUP impute

35
CME imputation process use units in sample where tax and survey variables are observed and model the survey variable (Y*) as a function of tax and frame data. (Y, X) Under CME this model applies to r = 0 too. use units in the sample where survey data are observed (i in s) but tax data are not (r i = 0) to model the survey variable (Y*)as function of frame data (x). combine to give an impute for (Y) for tax nonrespondents (r = 0): Combine to get EBLUP

36
Further work domain estimation for CME/MAR variance estimation discriminating between CME and MAR based on data

37
Conclusion GREG is useful for estimation of survey data but efficiency gain is limited. There is increasing interest in using tax data directly on its own to produce economic statistics. Non-ignorable missingness becomes a key issue with tax data. Survey data could be useful to help impute the tax data
