### Estimation of Subpopulation Parameters in One-stage Cluster Sampling Design

Authors

Abstract

Sometimes in order to estimate population parameters such as mean and total values, we extract a random sample by cluster sampling method, and after completing sampling, we are interested in using the same sample to estimate the desired parameters in a subset of the population, which is said subpopulation. In this paper, we try to estimate subpopulation parameters in different cases when one-stage cluster sampling design is used.
