Parameter estimation for successive survey with sample rotation in two-stage sampling and its application

Shengxue Liu, Yubo Fan, Ge Gao


In this paper, methods and theorems of mathematical statistics and probability were applied to deduce the formulae for estimating the composite population mean as well as the variance in two-stage sampling for successive survey with sample rotation. These formulae were applied in the successive survey for body mass index (BMI) of staff from one of the nuclear power stations in China.
