STRATA BOUNDARY DETERMINATION

William E. Winkler*

KEY WORDS: sampling, variance estimation

ABSTRACT

This paper provides a method of strata boundary determination that generalizes the method of Dalenius and Hodges. The method holds for general populations. It makes no restrictive assumptions about the population distribution or about the ignorability of the finite population correction.
