In some stratified sampling problems the
cost of obtaining an observation is the

If costs are unknown, we may be willing to
assume that the costs per observation are
equal.

Comparisons among the

With an array of sampling designs and
methods of analysis available, we now

chooses an appropriate design for a
particular problem.

CLUSTER SAMPLING

Definition: A cluster sample is a simple
random sample in which each sampling
unit is a collection, or cluster, of elements.
Cluster sampling is less costly than simple
or stratified random sampling

Estimating Population Means
The quantity of information in a cluster

sample is affected by two factors, the
number of clusters and the relative cluster
size.

Systematic Sampling
As we have seen in previous units , both

Cluster sampling with
probabilities proportional to size
We observed in previous discussions that
we can sometimes reduce the variance of
an estimator by sampling units with
probabilities proportional to a measure of

Selecting sample sizes
The problem of choosing the sample sizes
in two-stage sampling is much more
difficult that in previous chapter, which only
involved one stage of sampling.

a population proportion. For example, to
