Distinguish between two-stage and two-phase 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 clusters

Causes of multicollinearity:

  • Inaccurate use of dummy variables.
