Total Survey Design – Application to a Collection of the Construction Industry

Abstract:
Statistical agencies are placing increasing emphasis on non-sampling error in surveys as well as efficient collection design. This paper argues that by considering both sampling and non-sampling errors, and optimising resource allocations so that resources are deployed where error reduction is most effective, superior survey designs can be derived. The paper describes the application of the Total Survey Design approach to one collection – the Construction Industry Survey (CIS). The study is a simplification in many respects, but highlights the potential gains in efficiency from such an approach.

Keywords:
Data quality; optimal resource allocation; non-sampling error.
