Skew normal small area time models for the Brazilian annual service sector survey

Small domain estimation covers a set of statistical methods for estimating quantities in domains not previously considered by the sample design. In such cases, the use of a model-based approach that relates sample estimates to auxiliary variables is indicated. In this paper, we propose and evaluate skew normal small area time models for the Brazilian Annual Service Sector Survey (BASSS), carried out by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE). The BASSS sampling plan cannot

NONRANDOMIZED RESPONSE MODEL  FOR COMPLEX SURVEY DESIGNS

Warner’s randomized response (RR) model is used to collect sensitive information for a broad range of surveys, but it possesses several limitations such as lack of reproducibility, higher costs and it is not feasible for mail questionnaires. To overcome such difficulties, nonrandomized response (NRR) surveys have been proposed. The proposed NRR surveys are limited to simple random sampling with replacement (SRSWR) design. In this paper, NRR procedures are extended to complex survey

The results of the surveys formed the basis of the transport model, through which programs were developed to optimize the route and transport networks of agglomerate cities. A proposal was made to use a survey of public transport drivers to obtain competent opinions on the need for appropriate changes

Triple-goal estimation of unemployment rates for U.S. states using the U.S. Current Population Survey data

In this paper, we first develop a triple-goal small area estimation methodology for simultaneous estimation of unemployment rates for U.S. states using the Current Population Survey (CPS) data and a two-level random sampling variance normal model. The main goal of this paper is to illustrate the utility of the triple-goal methodology in generating a single series of unemployment rate estimates for three separate purposes: developing estimates for individual small area means, producing

The COVID-19 pandemic in South Australia: a survey of RGSSA members

A search of Royal the Geographical Society of South Australia publications at the time of the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918–1919 found no record of that tragic event. In view of this, it was decided to conduct a survey of members during the current COVID-19 pandemic to provide a record for posterity. The paper commences with an overview of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, in Australia and South Australia followed by a brief review of other COVID-19 surveys. It then describes the RGSSA survey

HYBRID MULTIPLE IMPUTATION IN A LARGE SCALE COMPLEX SURVEY

Large-scale complex surveys typically contain a large number of variables measured on an even larger number of respondents. Missing data is a common problem in such surveys. Since usually most of the variables in a survey are categorical, multiple imputation requires robust methods for modelling high-dimensional categorical data distributions. This paper introduces the 3-stage Hybrid Multiple Imputation (HMI) approach, computationally efficient and easy to implement, to impute complex survey

A survey of management of blood donations with unexpectected red cell antibodies

A survey of 19 large blood centers, each with an average annual collection of 158,889 units, was conducted to identify current practices of management of red cell units that contain unexpected red cell antibodies. The routine antibody identification, distribution, and charge for such units varied widely among the 19 centers. In addition, although use of these units was low, costs were considerable. This survey can serve as a basis for other studies to arrive at cost-effective ways to manage

BORROWING INFORMATION OVER TIME IN BINOMIAL/LOGIT NORMAL MODELS FOR SMALL AREA ESTIMATION

Linear area level models for small area estimation, such as the Fay-Herriot model, face challenges when applied to discrete survey data. Such data commonly arise as direct survey estimates of the number of persons possessing some characteristic, such as the number of persons in poverty. For such applications, we examine a binomial/logit normal (BLN) model that assumes a binomial distribution for rescaled survey estimates and a normal distribution with a linear regression mean function for

A Bayesian Small Area Model with Dirichlet Processes on the Responses

Typically survey data have responses with gaps, outliers and ties, and the distributions of the responses might be skewed. Usually, in small area estimation, predictive inference is done using a two-stage Bayesian model with normality at both levels (responses and area means). This is the Scott-Smith (S-S) model and it may not be robust against these features. Another model that can be used to provide a more robust structure is the two-stage Dirichlet process mixture (DPM) model, which has

A NEW RATIO ESTIMATOR: AN ALTERNATIVE TO REGRESSION ESTIMATOR IN SURVEY SAMPLING USING AUXILIARY INFORMATION

Estimation theory is enhanced by using the auxiliary information in order to improve on designs, precision and efficiency of estimators. A modified class of ratio estimator is suggested in this paper to estimate the population mean. Expressions for the bias and the mean square error of the proposed estimators are obtained.

Inference in surveys with nonresponse has been studied extensively in the literature with a focus on the estimation phase. Propensity weighting and calibrated weighting are among the adjustment methods used to reduce the nonresponse bias. The data collection phase has come into focus more recently; the literature on adaptive survey design emphasizes representativeness and degree of balance as desirable properties of the response obtained from a probability sample.

Effective leadership practices leading to distributed leadership

Leadership within the early childhood education (ECE) sector in New Zealand is both positionally assigned and a required practice of all teachers. Within this context, distributed leadership – where all team members have the opportunity to lead – is increasingly seen as an effective leadership model. This article reports on a study whose aim was to discover practices of effective positional leaders in facilitating distributed leadership. A nationwide survey was carried out in

Many highly efficient estimation methods in survey sampling require strong information about auxiliary variables, x. The most common estimation methods using auxiliary information in estimation stage are regression and ratio estimator.

SMALL AREA ESTIMATION FOR SKEWED DATA IN THE PRESENCE OF ZEROES

Skewed distributions with representative outliers pose a problem in many surveys. Various small area prediction approaches for skewed data based on transformation models have been proposed. However, in certain applications of those predictors, the fact that the survey data also contain a non-negligible number of zero-valued observations is sometimes dealt with rather crudely, for instance by arbitrarily adding a constant to each value (to allow zeroes to be considered as “positive observations
