Learning Areas:Biostatistics, economics

Social and behavioral sciences
Define dual-frame landline/mobile telephone sampling and a range of alternative weighting procedures, including innovative propensity score weighting that can be used to derive population estimates. Explain the rationale and usefulness of using propensity score weighting for variables available only only on a landline telephone questionnaire and not on a shorter cell phone instrument in a dual frame (landline plus mobile) sample survey. Compare the performance of estimates of 7 standard drinking pattern and problem variables based on newer propensity score weighting versus those obtained using more typical Census-based weighting.
