Abstract

One of the unique features of this book is a set of three detailed projects that can be used by instructors in courses. This chapter gives the first of several projects that mirror some of the complexities found in applied work. The three goals of this project are: (1) determine the allocation of a single-stage sample to strata in a multipurpose survey, accounting for specified precision targets for different estimates and differing eligibility and response rates for subgroups; (2) examine how sensitive the precision of estimates is to incorrect assumptions about response rates; and (3) write a technical report describing the sample design.
