TRAINING KEY 101b: Monte Carlo simulation



INTRODUCTION

Behavior of the HT estimator for SRSWOR sample, HT estimator for PPS sample and REG estimator for SRSWOR sample is examined by Monte Carlo simulation techniques.

Monte Carlo simulation of samples will be applied for the Province'91 Population



A) MONTE CARLO SIMULATION

Instructions for carrying out the experiments will be given once you start.
 

 


B) INTERACTIVE SAS USE

Simulation of samples by selecting the sample size (n) and the number of simulated samples (K) for your further training by using the SAS macro for Monte Carlo simulations.

NOTE! You need to have access to SAS in your computer.
