(p.72) 7 The General Linear Population Model
An Introduction to Model-Based Survey Sampling with Applications

Raymond L. Chambers

Robert G. Clark

Oxford University Press

All of the models discussed in chapters 3 through 6 are special cases of the correlated general linear population model. This chapter describes the general linear population model, and the correlated general linear population model. These models allow for very general relationships between the variable of interest and a set of auxiliary variables, where auxiliary variables can consist of an arbitrary number of continuous and categorical variables. Empirical best and best linear unbiased predictors are described, and the predictors from earlier chapters are shown to be special cases. Questions of model choice and efficient sample design are also considered.

Keywords:   general linear model, generalised regression estimator, model choice, sample design
