Designing Household Survey Samples

Practical Guidelines

image of Designing Household Survey Samples
This publication serves as a handbook that includes the main sample survey design issues that can conveniently be referred to by practicing national statisticians, researchers and analysts involved in sample survey work and activities in countries. Methodologically sound techniques that are grounded in statistical theory are used in this handbook, implying the use of probability sampling at each stage of the sample selection process. A well-designed household survey that is properly implemented can generate necessary information of sufficient quality and accuracy with speed and at a relatively low cost. The content of this publication can also be used, as a training guide for introductory courses in sample survey design at various statistical training institutions that offer courses in applied statistics, especially survey methodology.

Basics of survey sample design

Sampling is a technique by which a part of the population is selected and results from this fraction are generalized on the whole population from which the part or sample was selected. In general, there are two types of samples, namely, probability and non-probability samples. Our focus in this handbook is on probability samples. The overview will cover survey units, sample design, and basic sampling strategies, with examples.
