A Study for the Unit Nonresponse Calibration using Two-Phase Sampling Method Yum, Joon Keun; Jung, Young Mee;
The case which applies two-phase sampling to stratification and nonresponse problem, it is a poweful and effective technique. In this paper we study the calibration estimator and its variance estimator for the population total using two-phase sampling method according to the of auxiliary information for population and sample having strong correlation with an interested variable in unit nonresponse situation. The auxiliary information that available both at first-phase and second-phase sampling can be used to improve weights by the calibration procedure. A weight which corresponds to the product of sampling weights and response probability is calculated at each phase of sampling.
