STES Timeliness Framework: Sample Designs for Sub-Samples

 

Back to STES Timeliness Framework.

This page contains links to detailed documentation on sample designs for sub-samples.  The use of sub-samples from which preliminary (or ‘advanced’) estimates are produced is a very effective method for improving the timeliness of short-term economic statistics.  The papers below provide detailed information on efficient methods of sub-sampling which have been implemented within statistical organisations.
