Tuesday, December 3, 3.15 pm, 2013. Seminar in StatisticsBalance and sampling
Anton Grafström, Section of Forest Resource Analysis, SLU Umeå.
Abstract: When sampling from a finite population there is often auxiliary information available on unit level. By using such information wisely and select samples that are balanced in different ways (e.g. spatially balanced) we can significantly reduce the variance of estimators. Different methods to select balanced samples will be presented as well as some properties of balanced samples.
