Early Survey Models and Their Use in Survey Quality Work
Abstract:There have been great advances in sampling models over the past 60 years. As these models have been developed, so has an awareness of the problem of nonsampling errors in surveys. Two lines have emerged in this work, namely (i) the development of theory and methods for handling specific sources of nonsampling errors, and (ii) the development of a comprehensive theory of an integrated treatment of survey errors. The latter line is characterized by the use of survey models. This paper deals with the early research on survey models up to the early 1970s, and looks at the application of these models in survey quality work.
Keywords:Nonsampling errors; survey models; survey quality.
