Variance estimation for change: an evaluation based upon the 2000 Finnish labour force survey
There is considerable interest in estimation of changes between waves of survey (Smith et al. 2003), for example changes in the number of unemployed or in the unemployment rate. We consider two variance estimators of change: a naïve variance estimator (e.g. Kish, 1965; Tam, 1984) and a novel variance estimator (Berger, 2004). We compare these estimators by a simulation-based approaches based upon the 2000 Finnish Labour Force Survey. Variance estimation of change needs to take account of the rotation scheme. Three rotations will be considered: rotation with simple random sampling, rotation group sampling and rotation with systematic sampling.

Abstract

There is considerable interest in estimation of changes between waves of survey (Smith et al. 2003), for example changes in the number of unemployed or in the unemployment rate. We consider two variance estimators of change: a naïve variance estimator (e.g. Kish, 1965; Tam, 1984) and a novel variance estimator (Berger, 2004). We compare these estimators by a simulation-based approaches based upon the 2000 Finnish Labour Force Survey. Variance estimation of change needs to take account of the rotation scheme. Three rotations will be considered: rotation with simple random sampling, rotation group sampling and rotation with systematic sampling.
