By

G.A. UDOFIA, University of Calabar, Nigeria

SUMMARY. In this article, we consider double sampling for probability proportional to size (PPS) selection method in a population with known constituent strata. Estimators of Totals for domains of study that cut across all the strata with unknown weights are given. Comparison with a corresponding global estimator is made.

AMS (1991) subject classification. 62D05.

Key words and phrases. Domains of study, double sampling for probabilities proportional to size, estimation of total, comparison with global estimator.
