Domains of study and poststratification. (English) Zbl 1094.62010
Summary: The authors [ibid. 102, 25–45 (2002; Zbl 0989.62009)] investigated conditions under which exact linear unbiased estimators of linear estimands, and also exact quadratic unbiased estimators of quadratic estimands, could be constructed under the randomisation approach. In this paper, the method is applied to domains of study and extended to poststratified estimators of finite population totals. The resulting estimators generalise some of those of D. C. Doss et al. [ibid. 3, 235–247 (1979; Zbl 0408.62007)]. Some further properties of these estimators are explored.
