Survey Data Enhancement.
Wise, Lauress L.; McLaughlin, Donald H.
Work performed during the 1978-1980 SAGE contract to develop improved national estimates from survey data is reported. Three areas of effort are covered in this paper: (1) the use of longitudinal merges combined with relational edits to detect reporting or encoding errors; (2) the use of longitudinal merges together with special follow-up surveys to improve the universe coverage; and (3) the use of missing data imputation techniques to develop national estimates when key data elements are missing due to nonresponse or omissions.
