Abstract

Despite the best efforts of survey practitioners, non-response is a persistent problem for survey researchers as a potential source of bias for survey estimates. This paper is concerned with unit non-response and the various methods of weighting which are used in an attempt to reduce non-response bias. The methods may be categorized as follows: (i) using auxiliary population information; (ii) using auxiliary information for the intended respondents; (iii) using no auxiliary information. The methods are placed in a single framework defined by weighting classes and their properties compared.
