Methodology for CV look-up tables: CS11-619/98-1E-PDF

"Large surveys are faced with the problem of providing users of varying statistical backgrounds and needs with some indication of data quality. Various surveys have addressed this situation by supplying users with look-up tables of standard errors or coefficients of variation (CV's). Characteristics are often grouped by design effect to obtain the approximate measures of sampling error which appear in these tables. A methodology for the construction of such tables was developed based on generalized variance functions (GVF's), using geographic region as a proxy for design effect. This methodology has been applied to the Labour Force Survey (LFS), and an assessment of its performance is reported here"--Abstract.
