Show that SRSWOR, the sample proportion is an unbiased estimator of the population proportion of members possessing a certain character. Hence obtain the variance of the estimator.

Explanation

If we are interested in estimating the proportion of a certain character, the population of N fields can be defined with variate y i as having value 1 if the field is particular characteristic, otherwise zero. If the total number of particular characteristic be N 1 out of N

Describe in Detail

Define linear systematic sampling. Does it give equal probability of selection to all the population units? State the advantages and limitations of systematic sampling. Can a systematic sample be drawn without a physical list of population units? Justify your claim.

Explanation

Linear systematic sampling:

Linear systematic sampling is a commonly employed technique if the complete and up-to date list of the sampling units is available. This consists in selecting only the first unit at random, the rest being automatically selected according to some predetermined pattern involving regular spacing of units.
