Abstract:

The report discusses three sampling procedures available for estimating convex combinations of proportions and illustrates the feasibility and practical usefulness of these procedures. The first procedure is an analogue to simple random sampling from a single population. The remaining two procedures are infinite population analogues to optimum and proportional sampling from a single finite population. The practical aspects of selecting a procedure are discussed and numerical examples are given.
