Continuous Forest Inventory, Partial Replacement of Samples and Multiple Regression
Abstract:The theory of sampling populations on two occasions with partial replacement of units (SPR) is extended to use multiple regression estimates. It is shown that in general multiple are better than simple linear estimates and in many cases they are much more efficient. Formulae are derived for (1) best estimates of current averages and changes in these averages from first to second occasion and (2) standard errors of these estimates. An example is also given of its application to a sampling design in Continuous Forest Inventory (CFI).
