Complete Censuses and Samples
Leslie Kish and Vijay Verma
Abstract:Complete decennial censuses are needed for small areas and other domains. Sample surveys yield diverse and timely data. Censuses can also be combined with samples, and sometimes with data from registers, for diverse estimates that are detailed over both space and time, and hence are timely for small domains. Methods of “postcensal estimates” for small domains are described. We note uses of censuses for improving samples and of samples for improving censuses, and propose a method for cumulating data from “rolling” (or rotating) periodic (weekly, monthly or quarterly) samples specifically designed to cover the population in detail over designed spans (annual and quinquennial).
Keywords:Censuses; samples and censuses; population census; small domains; local area estimates.
