An Empirical Investigation of Sampling Errors in Educational Survey Research.
Ross, Kenneth N.
Journal of Educational Statistics, v4 n1 p24-40 Spr 1979
It is shown that using formulae for the estimation of sampling errors based on simple random sampling, when a design actually involves cluster sampling, can lead to serious underestimation of error. Jackknife and balanced repeated replication are recommended as techniques for dealing with this problem. (Author/CTM)
