Issues in Environmental Survey Design
Abstract:Several environmental survey design issues are discussed and illustrated with surveys designed by Research Triangle Institute statisticians. Issues related to sampling and nonsampling errors are illustrated for indoor air quality surveys, radon surveys, pesticide (well-water and groundwater) surveys, and occupational and personal exposure surveys. Sample design issues include the use of auxiliary information, (e.g., for stratification), and sampling in time. We also discuss the reduction and estimation of nonsampling errors, including nonresponse and measurement bias.
Keywords:Environmental surveys; sample design; nonsampling errors.
