Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to design an efficient sample of families in Brookings which can be used in analyzing the consumption pattern of the families in this city. The particular design which will be recommended is one which may be applied to other cities such as Madison, Watertown, and Aberdeen. The design will provide for a probability sample with a predetermined probability of selection of the individual family. The reasons for the selection of a probability rather than a non-probability sample are discussed in the following paragraphs.
