2 Situation looking for a method of variance estimation that is simple is widely applicable has good properties provides unique choice for estimators of nonlinear finite population parameters defined explicitly or implicitly using calibration weights under missing data using repeated survey of model parameters SM, 2004 JSM, 2002 and JMS, 2002 FCSM, 2003 Symposium, 2005 of dual frames JSM, 2007

3 Demnati –Rao Approach General formulation Finite population parameters Model parameters Estimator for both parameters Variance estimators associated with and are different

4
4 Demnati –Rao Approach ( Survey Methodology, 2004 ) Write the estimator of a finite population parameter as with if element k is not in sample s; if element k is in sample s;

5
5 Demnati –Rao Approach ( Survey Methodology, 2004 ) with A linearization sampling variance estimator is given by : variance estimator of the H-T estimator of the total is a (N×1) vector of arbitrary number

6
6 Demnati –Rao Approach ( Survey Methodology, 2004 ) Example – Ratio estimator of For SRSand

7
7 Demnati –Rao Approach ( Survey Methodology, 2004 ) Example – Ratio estimator of is a better choice over customary Royall and Cumberland (1981) Särndal et al. (1989) Valliant (1993) Binder (1996) Skinner (2004)

9 Model parameters (Symposium, 2005) Finite-population assumed to be generated from a superpopulation model : model expectation and variance where f is the sampling fraction. For multistage sampling, the psu sampling fraction plays the role of f. Inference on model parameter Total variance of : : design expectation and variance i)if f 0 then ii)if f 1 then In case i),

10
10 Example: Ratio estimator when y is assumed to be random for where A d is a 2×N matrix of random variables with k th column: Define We have We get where A b is a 2×N matrix of arbitrary real numbers with k th column: where is an estimator of the total variance of

11
11 Estimator of the total variance of with when Note that is an estimator of model covariance and A variance estimator of is given by where when and when

12
12 Hence where = model variance + sampling variance where and Under SRS,

13
13 Under ratio model, Note: g-weight appears automatically in Note: remains valid under misspecification of Hence, and the finite population correction 1-n/N is absent in

14
14 Simulation 1: Unconditional performance We generated R=2,000 finite populations, each of size N=393 from the ratio model where are independent observations generated from a N(0,1) are the number of beds for the Hospitals population studied in Valliant, Dorfman, and Royall (2000, p ) One simple random sample of specified size n is drawn from each generated population Parameter of interest:

17 Simulation 2: Conditional performance We generate R=20,000 finite populations, each of size N=393 from the ratio model using the number of beds as One simple random sample of size n=100 is drawn from each generated population Parameter of interest: We arranged the 20,000 samples in ascending order of -values and then grouped them into 20 groups each of size 1,000

24 Multiple Weight Adjustments Weight Adjustments for Units (or complete) nonresponse Calibration Due to lack of time, not presented in the talk, but it is included in the proceeding paper

25 Concluding Remarks We provided a method of variance estimation for estimators: The method of nonlinear model parameters using survey data is simple has good properties defined explicitly or implicitly is widely applicable provides unique choice using multiple weight adjustments under missing data Thank you Very Much
