Effects of sample overlap on the estimation and detection of change in income: CS11-613/91-2E-PDF

"It is well known that an improved estimate of change, from one time point to the next, can be obtained if positive correlation between cross-sectional estimates can be induced by sample overlap between those time points. However, in the case of survey with multistage sample designs, such as Survey of Consumer Finances, the gains in efficiencies (due to sample overlap) will depend on the stage at which the sample overlap occurs and the proportion of overlap. We examine the effects of sample overlap on the estimation and detection of change in income by using the data from Survey of Consumer Finances conducted in 1988 and 1989"--Abstract.
