Jan Fredrik Bjørnstad: Survey sampling the way I see it.
Jan Fredrik Bjørnstad (Statistics Norway and Dept. of Math.,UiO) gives a seminar in room 107, 1st floor N.H. Abels House at 14:15 November 18th: Survey sampling the way I see it.
The traditional design approach is evaluated, using
a likelihood approach to survey sampling . It is argued
that a model-based approach is unavoidable from a
scientific point of view. Estimating population quantities
can then be regarded as a prediction problem.
Different variance measures are discussed.
