  1. A computer simulation of household sampling schemes for health surveys in developing countries.

    Article - En anglais

    Background.

    Cluster sample surveys of health and nutrition in rural areas of developing countries frequently utilize the EPI (Expanded Programme on Immunization) method of selecting households where complete enumeration and systematic or simple random sampling (SRS) is considered impractical.

    The first household is selected by choosing a random direction from the centre of the community, counting the houses along that route, and picking one at random.

    Subsequent households are chosen by visiting that house which is nearest to the preceding one.
