New methods for small group analysis from sample surveys

Grant

  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • Data are fundamental to good decisions in health, environment, economic and social policy. Increasingly data are required for local areas or other small groups to formulate and implement policies. Traditional sample surveys cannot provide these data at reasonable cost. Statistical models that combine survey data with other information about the groups of interest are needed for complex analyses about distributions, achievement of important thresholds and monitoring over time. This project will create new cost-effective methods to meet this demand using surveys and statistical modelling. Implications for survey design for local area and small group outputs will be determined, as will robust and efficient methods for analysing these data.
