» Sampling Techniques » TwoStage Sampling with Equal Number of Second Stage Units
Appeared in Year: 2009
Describe in Detail
Distinguish between twostage and twophase sampling schemes. Give suitable examples.
Explanation
Two Stage Sampling:
All elements are surveyed in cluster sampling and efficiency in cluster sampling depends on size of the cluster. As the size increases, the efficiency decreases.
Rather than enumerating all the sampling units in the selected clusters, one can get better and more efficient estimators by resorting to sub sampling within the clu

Describe in Detail
Define multicollinearity. What are the causes of multicollinearity? How will you detect the same and solve it?
Explanation
Multicollinearity: Implies predictors that are correlated with other predictors in the model. Here two or more predictor variables in a multiple regression model are highly correlated and implies that one can be linearly predicted from the others with a substantial degree of accuracy.
Causes of multicollinearity:

Inaccurate use of dummy varia

What precautions would you take in planning for a sample survey?
Explanation
Precautions to be taken for planning sample survey:

Objectives of the survey: The first step is to define clearly the objective of the survey. The objective should be kept easy so that the people working for the survey easily understand it. The hypothesis being tested and the outcomes that will be used to study the hypothesis should be clear.

» Econometrics » Autoregressive Linear Regression
Appeared in Year: 2011
Describe in Detail
Discuss second order autoregressive series. For this series, obtain complementary function (CF) only.
Explanation
Second order autoregressive series:
Sometimes, the values of a time series data are highly correlated with the values that precede and succeed them. i. e. , The value of a time series at any time “t” may depend upon its own value at times t1, t2, …, tk, the relationship being linear.
In such cases an autoregression model is used for forecast
