Miscellanea, The Variance of Direct Expansions From a Common Area Sampling Design

Abstract:
Many countries use a sample design in their agricultural surveys that is assumed, incorrectly, to be equivalent to stratified simple random sampling without replacement. This article discusses how the variance of a direct expansion based on that design should be estimated.

Keywords:
Area segment; cluster; probability proportional to size; model-based analysis; anticipated variance.
