Variance estimation methodology and general purpose variance estimation system for the Labour Force Survey: CS11-613/89-22E-PDF

"In the redesigned Labour Force Survey, the raking ratio estimation had been used until 1989. To provide the variance estimates of the raking ratio estimates, a new methodology and computer system had been developed for the published data. However, it is often necessary to calculate variances of user specified characteristics for a special purpose on an ad hoc basis. The existing system does not provide the flexibility to meet such needs. A general purpose variance estimation system was developed to meet these needs. This paper describes briefly the new variance estimation methodology and gives a detailed explanation of the system. It also includes the whole listing of the computer system"--Abstract.
