English title: Design Effects: Model-based versus Design-based Approach

Author(s): Matthias Ganninger -

Language: English

Type: Book (monograph)



For a given sample and a certain item, design effects can be estimated under two different approaches: the design-based approach to design effects is flexible in terms of the estimators for which deff can be specified. The model-based approach has the advantage of enabling predictions of expected design effects. The components of the estimators of deff under either approach are, however, subject to quality issues themselves. Thus, the question arises which estimation approach yields the best results in terms of bias and precision. This thesis gives and answer to this question for a set of practically relevant estimators and sample designs.
