Abstract
The thesis evaluates the process of making a survey and explores the statistics involved in the process. It is based on a study conducted in collaboration with Simrishamn municipality, which explores the habits and attitudes of migration in the municipality. An important finding is that age and gender affect the respondents’ answers and the response rate. Consequentially it is imperative to implement a method of weighting the results based on these demographic variables.

The thesis presents a statistical model for the sampling structure and an examination of the estimators, especially the impact that the adjustment for non-response, by weighting, has on the statistical properties of the estimators. The main conclusion of the thesis is... (More)

The thesis presents a statistical model for the sampling structure and an examination of the estimators, especially the impact that the adjustment for non-response, by weighting, has on the statistical properties of the estimators. The main conclusion of the thesis is that prevailing relevant non-statistical factors and the statistical prerequisites determine which statistical methods are suitable. (Less)
