Local Variance Estimator 2 therefore does not necessarily reflect the views of the Agency, and no official endorsement should be inferred. This document is a preliminary draft. It is being circulated for comments on its technical merit. Do not release. Do not quote or cite Summary The spatial distribution of a natural resource is an important consideration in designing an efficient survey or monitoring program for the resource. We review a unified strategy for designing probability samples of… CONTINUE READING
