Designing Household Survey Samples: Practical Guidelines
This handbook includes the main sample survey design issues that can conveniently be referred to by practicing national statisticians, researchers and analysts involved in sample survey work and activities in countries. Methodologically sound techniques that are grounded in statistical theory are used in the handbook, implying the use of probability sampling at each stage of the sample selection process. A well designed household survey which is properly implemented can generate necessary information of sufficient quality and accuracy with speed and at a relatively low cost.
