An Dynamic Optimal Allocation for the Stratified Randomized Response Technique Son, Chang-Kyoon; Hong, Ki-Hak; Lee, Gi-Sung;
Typically the standard optimal allocation method distributes the sample for each stratum considering survey cost. In case of varying survey cost for each survey unit, we need to consider more practical allocation method. In other words, according to characteristics of an individual unit, we consider the optimal dynamic allocation method which first selects the survey unit having maximum value of benefit cost ratio. In terms of this, the proposed allocation method is different from standard optimal allocation method which allocate samples for each stratum and selects the random sample according to each size of sample. This paper is considered the dynamic optimal allocation method for the stratified randomized response technique which surveys for sensitive characteristic of survey units such as drug abuse, abortion, alcoholic. We prove the practical usefulness of proposed method using the numerical example.
