Statistical investigations of farm sample surveys in Iowa, Florida, and California,
R. J. JESSEN and E. E. HOUSEMAN. (Coop. U. S. D. A.). (Iowa Sta.
Res. Bu. 329 (1944), pp. 261-338, illus. 8).-The results are presented of a statistical
analysis of data obtained in surveys by the grid method of sampling made primarily
to secure facts on farm employment in the 99 counties of Iowa, 26 of the 67
counties of Florida, and 9 California counties. The findings and conclusions were
that the grid method of sampling "can be adapted to widely differing farming situations
and if properly used will provide unbiased samples of farms.
"The most suitable size of grid for sampling varies according to the nature of
the farming area and to the kind and extent of stratification, the method of estimation
or expansion and cost situations for the kinds of inquiries being considered. The
best size of grid for the surveys considered seems to be somewhat between a quartersection
and a full-section.
"Stratification, if properly applied, is an effective and efficient means of reducing
sampling error. In many of the counties where farm types differ so widely, such
as in California and Florida, stratification by geographic area alone does not effectively
divide the sampling population into groups which are homogeneous enough.
In these regions schemes of stratification which make some use of information available
on such features as land use and the number of farms per grid should be employed.
