On Finding and Delineating Area Sample Units in the Field
Abstract:Multistage population samples almost invariably use area sampling, the areal units at one stage of sampling frequently being the enumeration areas defined by the most recent census. However, problems in identifying the selected EA's in the field can lead, particularly in developing countries, to serious errors of coverage in the survey. This article describes the types of problem that can occur and suggests procedures for ensuring that they are detected and resolved.
Keywords:Area sampling; survey mapping; non-sampling errors.
