Preparation of Sampling Survey Reports
Series: C, No.1 (Revised)
This historically significant document from 1950 provides a set of suggestions for the preparation of sampling survey reports. It is one of the earliest set of international guidelines which dealt with the use of technical terminology in various aspects of the sampling process. It was prepared by the Sub-Commission on Statistical Sampling of the Statistical Commission, whose members were Prof. G. Darmois, W.E. Deming, Prof. P.C. Mahalanobis (Chairman), F. Yates and Prof. R.A. Fisher (consultant). The suggestions in this handbook still provide a useful guide for achieving clarity, comprehensiveness, and international comparability in sample survey reporting.
