The standard deviation of the values of the target variable is known. c. All first-order inclusion expectations are positive. d. All second-order inclusion expectations are positive. 1 THE QUESTIONNAIRE The survey process starts with the formulation of the general research question. The objective of the survey is to answer this question. To that end, the research question must be translated into a set of variables (both target and auxiliary variables) that are to be measured in the survey. The values of these variables will be used to estimate a set of relevant population parameters.
Such contact information can comprise of, for example, name and address, telephone number, or email address. Such lists can exist on paper (a card index box for the members of a club, a telephone directory) or in a computer (a database containing a register of all companies). If such lists are not available, detailed geographical maps are sometimes used. For selecting a sample from the total population of The Netherlands, a population register is available. In principle, it contains all permanent residents in the country.
