A Linear Model for Estimation with Composite Sample Data
- 887 Downloads
The foregoing chapters covered various issues involving composite sample data with their statistical treatment. The problems vary from classification of individual samples to drawing inference on population parameters, especially the population mean. The measurements can be either presence/absence or continuous. A common theme in all these chapters is the need to establish a relationship between individual sample values and composite sample values.
