Estimating Totals and Distribution Functions Using Auxiliary Information at the Estimation Stage

Abstract:
A general set-up for inference from survey data that covers the estimation of totals and distribution functions is provided, using auxiliary information at the estimation stage. Both probability sampling and model-assisted approaches are studied. A conditional probability sampling approach that provides conditionally valid repeated sampling inferences, under model misspecifications, is also considered. Finally, asymptotically efficient calibration estimators that satisfy certain consistency constraints are proposed.

Keywords:
Calibration estimators; conditional probability sampling approach; model-assisted approach.
