An investigation of relative efficiency of least-squares prediction to conventional probability sampling plans

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A particular finite population, typical of the type encountered in practice, is used to assess the efficiency of ratio estimation of the finite population total using conventional unrestricted random sampling, extreme and balanced sampling plans, for samples of size 10, 50, 100, and 200. The balanced sampling plans are seen to be as much as 30 percent more efficient than the corresponding unrestricted random sampling plan regardless of sample size, but the extreme sample is inferior to both of these plans.
