A New Concept for Tuning Design Weights in Survey Sampling: Jackknifing in Theory and Practice introduces the new concept of tuning design weights in survey sampling by presenting three concepts: calibration, jackknifing, and imputing where needed. This new methodology allows survey statisticians to develop statistical software for analyzing data in a more precisely and friendly way than with existing techniques.
- Explains how to calibrate design weights in survey sampling
- Discusses how Jackknifing is needed in design weights in survey sampling
- Describes how design weights are imputed in survey sampling
