2 To look between the street-lamps! Under the lamps: standard errors Between the lamps: nonresponse bias, measurement bias etc.
3 Farm Accidents Survey 2004: main study Target population: Swedish farms Frame: Swedish Farm Register 2003, with farms Sample size: 7000 farms Sampling design: stratified Pareto πps Data collection: postal questionnaire + telephone interviewing
5 Farm Accidents Survey 2004: Venn diagramme Frame population * Target population * Sample Measurement study * Nonresponse study Overcoverage
6 Hansen-Hurwitz plan (subsampling of nonrespondents) Nonresponse follow-up and adjustment Simple random sampling within strata for nonrespondents Presupposes very high response rate for the subsample Two-phase estimation
7 Measurement study by subsampling Retrospective questions Subsample among farms without accidents Survey and adjust! Two-phase estimation
8 The result of the survey Measurement study 4 7 per cent of the farms had accident(s) Nonresponse study marginal adjustment Few accidents are reported to the social insurance office
