Abstract

In this paper, randomized response technique (RRT) model was presented in application to investigating multinomial sensitive question with the sample selected by two-stage cluster sampling. Monte Carlo simulation was successfully performed in the assessment of reliability and validity of two-stage cluster sampling investigation on multinomial sensitive questions. The results show that the two-stage cluster sampling method and corresponding formulae were feasible.
