Asymptotically Design-Unbiased Predictors in Survey Sampling

Abstract

A probability sampling plan is suggested in this paper for drawing the sample so that the linear least-squares predictor of the total of a finite population is made asymptotically design-unbiased. Conditions are given for the sampling plan to reduce to the more familiar sample designs discussed in the literature.
