However, these variables are not available for the population, and so do not form part of Z. The homogenous model applies because the distribution of yi |zi is the same for every child in the classroom, due to the paucity of information available in Z. (If it was thought that age might be a relevant variable, then a model other than the homogenous model would be used. ) • Items on an assembly line. Y might be the weight of the item. If there were no auxiliary variables, then the homogenous model would apply.

H, let ch Ah = f (z)dz ch−1 with c0 = a and cH = b. Assuming that there are a sufficient number of strata, the within-stratum distribution of Z can be considered to be approximately 2 uniform, with the within-stratum variance given by σzh = (ch − ch−1 )2 /12. Also, −1 the fraction Fh = N Nh of the population falling in stratum h is approximately Fh ≈ dh × (ch − ch−1 ), where f(z) is assumed constant, √ with value dh , in stratum h. Furthermore, under the uniform assumption, Ah ≈ dh × (ch − ch−1 ).

3) of this estimator. We see that it can be decomposed into two terms, Var tˆSy − ty = h Nh2 σh2 /nh − h Nh σh2 Only the first term depends on the nh , and minimising Var tˆSy − ty is therefore equivalent to choosing nh in order to minimise h Nh2 σh2 /nh subject to the restriction h nh = n. 6) that this minimum occurs when nh ∝ Nh σh , which implies nh = nNh σh / g Ng σg . 5) This optimal method of allocation is often referred to as Neyman Allocation, after Neyman (1934), whose fundamental paper gave the method wide prominence.
