Example text

Each pseudo-replicate then includes approximately half of the total 27 sample. 1 with t = 2, we can estimate the sampling variance of the mean of the two replicate estimates, u , u , by v(" u) = [(u − u")2 + (u − u")2 ]/2: (4:2) As seen above, the mean of replicate estimates is often replaced by an overall estimate obtained from the full sample. However, this estimator is too unstable to have any practical value because it is based on only two pseudo-replicates. The BRR method solves this problem by repeating the process of forming half-sample replicates, selecting different units from different strata.

000231. 000163). The design effect indicates that the variance of the estimated proportion from the GSS is 42% larger than the variance calculated from an SRS of the same size. 4 also gives similar estimates. In summary, the BRR technique uses a pseudo-replication procedure to estimate the sampling variance and is primarily designed for a paired selection design. It also can be applied to a complex survey, which selects one PSU per stratum by pairing strata, but the pairing must be performed judiciously, taking into account the actual sample selection procedure.

This analysis is used for demonstration only. b. Percentage with any mental disorders during the last 6 months. c. Sex difference in the 6-month prevalence rate. therefore, may be preferable to a random selection of a starting point for this relatively small number of replicates. 1. Because one adult was randomly selected from each sampled household using the Kish selection table (Kish, 1949), the number of adults in each household became the sample case weight for each observation. This weight was then adjusted for nonresponse and poststratification.
