Topics in design-based and Bayesian inference for surveys
We deal with two different topics in Statistics. The first topic in survey sampling deals with variance and variance estimation of estimators of model parameters in the design-based approach to analytical inference for survey data when sampling weights include post-sampling weight adjustments such as calibration. Under the design-based approach estimators of model parameters, if available in closed form, are written as functions of estimators of population totals and means. We examine properties of these estimators in particular their asymptotic variances and show how ignoring the post-sampling ...
