Abstract

In sampling a rare population, gains can be made through the use of optimal allocation if a large proportion of the population lives in concentrated areas which can be identified. The use of such a strategy is illustrated with an actual sampling procedure developed to select a sample of females aged 15 through 19 where black respondents were to be selected at four times the rate of whites.
