Assessment of fertility indicators derived from GGP samples Bulgaria, Hungary and Georgia
University of Lausanne, 2009,
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
Before sample data is used for analysis and extrapolation to population-wide conclusions, it is advisable to make an assessment as to whether the sample is truly representative. This study examines the fertility data derived from the Generations and Gender programme (GGP) sample surveys in Bulgaria, Hungary and Georgia. The conclusion is that the GGP sample data is essentially representative of the populations of Hungary and Georgia. However, discrepancies between the indicators derived from the GGP sample and from vital statistics for Bulgaria are significant; possible reasons for these anomalies are discussed.
