Sampling Frames for Agriculture in the United States
Ron Fecso, Robert D. Tortora, and Frederic A. Vogel
Abstract:The primary purpose of the National Agricultural Statistics Service (formerly the Statistical Reporting Service) in the U.S. Department of Agriculture is to provide information about current and future supplies of agricultural commodities. This information is generally obtained through surveys relying upon the joint use of area and list sampling frames. This paper provides an overview of the historic development and current use of the area and list sampling frames and their integration through the use of dual frame sampling techniques.
Keywords:Agriculture; area frame; list frame; dual frame.
