Sampling design for the 1980 commercial and multifamily residential building survey

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Details of a proposed sample design for the 1980 Commercial and Multifamily Building Energy Performance Survey are presented. The objective of the survey is to assess the extent to which new building design practices comply with the proposed 1980 Energy Budget Levels for Commercial and Multifamily Residential Building Designs (DEB/sub 80/). The procedure will be to: identify a small number of building types which account for the majority of commercial buildings constructed in the U.S.A.; conduct a separate survey for each building type; and include only buildings designed during 1980. For each building in the survey, the Design Energy Consumption ... continued below

Description

Details of a proposed sample design for the 1980 Commercial and Multifamily Building Energy Performance Survey are presented. The objective of the survey is to assess the extent to which new building design practices comply with the proposed 1980 Energy Budget Levels for Commercial and Multifamily Residential Building Designs (DEB/sub 80/). The procedure will be to: identify a small number of building types which account for the majority of commercial buildings constructed in the U.S.A.; conduct a separate survey for each building type; and include only buildings designed during 1980. For each building in the survey, the Design Energy Consumption (DEC/sub 80/) will be determined by the DOE2.1 computer program. The quantity X = (DEC/sub 80/ - DEB/sub 80/), will be calculated for each building as a measure of its compliance with DEB/sub 80/. These X quantities will then be used to compute sample statistics. Inferences about nationwide compliance with DEB/sub 80/ may then be made for each building type. This report provides details of the population, sampling frame, stratification, sample size, and implementation of the sampling plan.
