Efficiency of Multiple Response Adaptive Estimators


Mosquin, P. L. (2005, August). Efficiency of Multiple Response Adaptive Estimators. Presented at Joint Statistical Meetings, Minneapolis, MN.


This talk will describe adaptive sampling designs where the adaptive condition can be satisfied through the joint action of more than one sample unit. Estimators and their variances are given, and simulation results presented to identify situations where the designs are more efficient than their adaptive cluster counterparts. It is found that the estimators can be more efficient, providing some protection against poor choice of unit size, frame orientation, and frame placement. The designs can be used with populations that allow a finer frame partitioning than is proposed for sample units of an adaptive cluster design.
