Cost-variance optimization for the Canadian Labour Force Survey: CS11-616/85-69E-PDF

"The cost-variance optimization of the design of the Canadian Labour Force Survey was carried out in two steps. First, the sample desiqns were optimized for each of the two major area types, the Self-Representing (SR) and the Non-Self-Representing (NSR) areas. Cost models were developed and parameters estimated from a detailed field study and by simulation, while variances were estimated using data from the Census of Population. The scope of the optimization included the allocation of sample to the two stages in the SR design, and the consideration of two alternatives to the old design in NSR areas. The second stage of optimization was the allocation of sample to SR and NSR areas"--Abstract.
