 Abstract
In the sample survey for a highly skewed population, stratum jumpers often occur. Stratum jumpers are units having large discrepancies between a stratification variable and a study variable. We propose two models for stratum jumpers: a multiplicative model and a random replacement model. We also consider the modification of the L-H stratification algorithm such that we apply the previous models to L-H algorithm in determination of the sample sizes and the stratum boundaries. We evaluate the performances of the new stratification algorithms using real data. The result shows that L-H algorithm for the random replacement model outperforms other algorithms since the estimator has the least coefficient of variation.
