  1. 1. On unequal probability sampling designs

    University dissertation from Umeå : Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, Umeå University

    Author : Anton Grafström; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; conditional Poisson sampling; correlated Poisson sampling; entropy; extended Sampford sampling; Horvitz-Thompson estimator; inclusion probabilities; list-sequential sampling; non-rejective implementation; Pareto sampling; Poisson sampling; probability functions; ratio estimator; real-time sampling; repeated Poisson sampling; Sampford sampling; sampling designs; splitting method; unequal probability sampling; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : The main objective in sampling is to select a sample from a population in order to estimate some unknown population parameter, usually a total or a mean of some interesting variable. When the units in the population do not have the same probability of being included in a sample, it is called unequal probability sampling. READ MORE

  2. 2. Contributions to the theory of unequal probability sampling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för Matematik och Matematisk Statistik, Umeå universitet

    Author : Anders Lundquist; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; balanced sampling; conditional Poisson sampling; inclusion probabilities; maximum entropy; Markov chain Monte Carlo; Pareto sampling; Sampford sampling; unequal probability sampling.; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of five papers related to the theory of unequal probability sampling from a finite population. Generally, it is assumed that we wish to make modelassisted inference, i.e. the inclusion probability for each unit in the population is prescribed before the sample is selected. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Methods for Real Time Sampling and Distributions in Sampling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Matematisk statistik

    Author : Kadri Meister; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical statistics; Finite population sampling; inferential issues; real time sampling; sequential sampling methods; negative sampling correlations; model-design-based inference; multivariate Bernoulli and multinomial designs; Matematisk statistik; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis is composed of six papers, all dealing with the issue of sampling from a finite population. We consider two different topics: real time sampling and distributions in sampling. The main focus is on Papers A–C, where a somewhat special sampling situation referred to as real time sampling is studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Techniques to Calculate Exact Inclusion Probabilities for Conditional Poisson Sampling and Pareto .pi.ps Sampling Designs

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Nibia Aires; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sampling theory; conditional Poisson sampling; Pareto pips sampling; order sampling; numerical integration; algorithms;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of five papers and treats two finite population sampling methods, viz. the Conditional Poisson and the Pareto .pi.ps sampling schemes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Spatial sampling and prediction

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lina Schelin; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Auxiliary variables; Censoring; Inclusion probabilities; Kriging; Local pivotal method; Minimum detection limit; Prediction intervals; Representative sample; Spatial process; Spatial sampling; Semiparametric bootstrap; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses two aspects of spatial statistics: sampling and prediction. In spatial statistics, we observe some phenomena in space. Space is typically of two or three dimensions, but can be of higher dimension. READ MORE
