Survey estimation under informative nonresponse with follow-up

  title={Survey estimation under informative nonresponse with follow-up},
  author={Seppo Laaksonen and Robert Chambers},
  journal={Quality Engineering},
This paper deals with survey estimation when there is partial follow-up of sample non-response. Two different approaches that make use of the follow-up data are presented, the first based on weighting and the other on prediction, with appropriate variance estimators developed for each case. A simulation evaluation of these approaches using synthetic data and informative non-response is then used to contrast them with a basic weighting approach that does not take advantage of the follow-up… 
Variance estimation under monotone non-response for a panel survey
Panel surveys are frequently used to measure the evolution of parameters over time. Panel samples may suffer from different types of unit non-response, which is currently handled by estimating the
A simulation approach to evaluate the cost efficiency of nonresponse follow-ups
This thesis proposes an approach to evaluate the cost-efficiency of the nonresponse rate reduction efforts for a general survey setup, assuming a direct element sampling design and a theoretical framework, under which both the error and the cost can be evaluated.
An efficient method of estimation for longitudinal surveys with monotone missing data
Panel attrition is frequently encountered in panel sample surveys. When it is related to the observed study variable, the classical approach of nonresponse adjustment using a covariate-dependent
New methods to handle nonresponse in surveys
This document focuses on nonresponse in sample surveys. Mainly, methods to handle nonresponse in complex surveys are proposed. The first chapter of this document introduces concepts and notation of
Dealing with nonresponse in survey sampling: a latent modeling approach
Nonresponse is present in almost all surveys and can severely bias estimates. It is usually distinguished between unit and item nonresponse: in the former, we completely fail to have information from
Model-based design in small area estimation
In this paper, we address the problem of an efficient estimation strategy when solving real survey sampling problems. We consider the panel data model with random effects as a superpopulation model.
Non-Response Bias in Cross-National Surveys: Designs for Detection and Adjustment in the ESS
This paper is focused on process and output aspects of the obtained sample and deals with the measurement of non-response, and the study of non-response bias from a viewpoint of comparative research
Does the choice of link function matter in response propensity modelling?
This paper pays attention to model specification that may be an intricate task including many challenging aspects, and focuses on the choice of a link function that has been rarely discussed in the literature.
To Misreport or Not to Report? The Measurement of Household Financial Wealth
The objective of the paper is to adjust for the bias due to unit non-response and measurement error in survey estimates of total household financial wealth. Sample surveys are a useful source of
A Comparison of Model-Based and Model-Assisted Estimators under Ignorable and Non-Ignorable Nonresponse
The benefits of using model-based estimators, such as the best linear unbiased predictor (BLUP), for survey inference over model-assisted estimators, such as the generalized regression estimator


A General View of Estimation for Two Phases of Selection with Applications to Two-Phase Sampling and Nonresponse
Summary This paper is meant as a contribution to estimation (a) in the case of two-phase sampling, (b) in the case of nonresponse. In both cases, there is subsample selection. The difference is that
Survey Nonresponse Adjustments for Estimates of Means
Summary Theoretical properties of nonresponse adjustments based on adjustment cells are studied, for estimates of means for the whole population and in subclasses that cut across adjustment cells.
Subsampling Callbacks to Improve Survey Efficiency
Abstract The National Comorbidity Survey (NCS), a 1990–1992 nationwide face-to-face survey of the U.S. population age 15–54 regarding the prevalence of psychiatric comorbidity, required, as with most
Finite‐Population Sampling
QUESTION Tree ring width measurements can be used to indicate the impact of historical stresses (e.g., climate, pollution) on trees. A researcher is concerned about environmental stresses experienced
