ABSTRACT

Abstract: Sample survey is very common these days. But projecting the correct population inference using these sample survey information is challenging. Sample weights obtained by weighting procedure does helps in minimizing the sampling bias to an extent but it does not fully eliminates the sampling error. The objectives of this study were how to further refine and use the sample information for population projections prior to putting under weighting techniques.
