Earlier chapters examined sample size determination and allocation to strata for a single variable. In reality, almost every survey of any size is multipurpose. Data on a number of different variables are collected on each sample unit. Estimates are made of population values for the full population and for various domains or subpopulations. In addition, a variety of types of estimates may be made, including means, totals, quantiles, and model parameters.
