Description/Abstract

Sample coordination maximizes or minimizes the overlap of samples selected from overlapping populations. We propose a coordination method for the case where units are to be selected with maximum overlap using two designs with given unit inclusion probabilities. Our method is based on some theoretical conditions on the joint selection probability of two samples and on the application of a controlled selection method, implemented with linear programming.
