Description/Abstract

A sampling design is considered for multipurpose surveys in which several stratifying variables are available and the objective is to estimate totals or means of several variables, each highly correlated with one of the stratifying variables. The design involves selecting separate subsamples independently by stratified sampling with respect to each of the stratifying variables in turn. Estimation then involves pooling data from the separate subsamples using methods from multiple frame sampling. The strategy is compared with standard approaches in a simulation study and it is shown that significant gains in efficiency can arise. The application of the proposed strategy to a market research problem of designing a survey of readership of agricultural publications is described.

Nous proposons un nouveau plan de sondage pour des enquetes ou plusieurs de variables de stratification sont disponible et le but est l'estimation des totaux et des moyennes de plusieurs de variables, chaqu'une correlee fortement avec une des variables de stratification. Le plan d'echantillon se compose de la selection de plusieurs d'echantillons independants selon echantillonage stratifie par chaque variable de stratification tour a tour. Pour l'estimation on combine les donnees des echantillons independants par les techniques qui sont utilises dans les enquetes avec quelques bas de sondages. Une etude par simulation compare le nouvel plan et les plans conventionaux et nous trouvous que le gain d'efficience du nouvel plan peut etre grand. L'application du plan propose au dessein d'une enquete des lecteurs des publications agricoles est decrite.
