Reconciling Fixed Interview Workloads With Self-Weighting Sampling When Size Measures are Defective
Chris Scott and Ben Amenuvegbe
Abstract:When probability proportional to size sampling is used at the area sampling stage, a self-weighting sample can be achieved with a fixed take of households in each area. This convenient result breaks down if the size measures are imperfect. The paper shows how it is still possible to retain the advantages of self-weighting and fixed interviewer workloads by allowing the number of interviewers per area unit to become a random variable.
Keywords:Sampling; self-weighting; developing country surveys.
