Appeared in Year: 2010
Describe in Detail
Explain the concept of stratification in stratified simple Random sampling. What is proportional and optimum allocation in stratified simple Random sampling? With usual notations show that: V () _{opt } < V () _{prop} < V () _{ran}
Explanation
Stratification:
Stratification means division into layers, classes or categories. Past or some other information related to the character under study may be used to divide the population into various groups. Then simple random sampling or systematic sampling is applied within each stratum.
The strata should be mutually exclusive and exhaustive:

» Sampling Techniques » Cluster Sampling with SRS  IntraClass Correlation Coefficient
Appeared in Year: 2010
Describe in Detail
What is cluster sampling? In the case of cluster sampling for proportions, obtain an unbiased
Estimator of population proportion. Also, compute variance of your estimator.
Explanation
Cluster sampling:
Cluster sampling is a type of sampling method. In this method, the population is divided into separate groups, called clusters. Then, a simple random sample of clusters is selected from the population. Then analysis is done on the data from the obtained sampled clusters.
The samplings lead to several difficulties if the popula

» Applied Statistics » Index Numbers » Price Relatives and Quantity or Volume Relatives
Appeared in Year: 2011
Describe in Detail
Explain the errors in the measurement of price and quantity index number.
Explanation
All index numbers are affected by mainly three types of errors.

Formula error

Sampling error

Homogeneity error
Formula error:
There is no universally accepted index number formula that will measure the price or quantity changes excatly. Each formula in common use has its own defeat and consequently some error is natural in all index num
