Some Theory on Reliability of Volume Estimates in a Forest Inventory Sample
In any average volume per acre estimates from a forest inventory sample there are three sources of error that could be recognized, namely, error due to the chance location of sample plots, error due to volume tables and measurement error. This paper shows a method by which the first two errors are combined in a given sampling technique and a formula is given so that the precision of the average volume per acre could be calculated.
