Sampling Design Data File
The term ‘sampling design (data) file’ is not commonly used in survey sampling literature. The methodology behind it is used, but only implicitly. An exception is in the ESS sampling (ESS Sampling Guidelines, 2017) in which it was implemented for the first time in 2002. This chapter makes use of this experience, which has been described at a more general level by Laaksonen (2015).
