Calibration for Spatial Stratified Sampling Design Byun, Jong-Seok; Son, Chang-Kyoon; Kim, Jong-Min;
The sampling design for the spatial population studies needs a model assumption of a dependent relationship, where the interesting parameters can be the population mean, proportion and area. We know that the study of an interested spatial population, which is stratified by a geographical condition or shape, and the degree of distort of an estimation area is much useful. In light of this, if auxiliary information of the target variable such as wasted area contaminated by some material and the degree of distribution of animal or plants is available, then the spatial estimator might be improved through the calibration procedure. In this research, we propose the calibration procedure for the spatial stratified sampling in which we consider the one and two-dimensional auxiliary information.
