Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2012 ; 2252.

This document focuses on the estimation of inequality measures for complex survey data. The proposed methodology takes into account both the complexity of these generally non-linear functions of interest and the complexity of the sampling strategy. The first chapter is dedicated to the presentation and definition of the main concepts used in both inequality and survey sampling theory. In the...

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2009 ; Th.2092.

This Ph.D. thesis concentrates on two important subjects in survey sampling theory. One is the problem of the foundation for statistical inference in finite population sampling, and the other is the problem of coordination of samples over time. The thesis is based on four articles. Three of them are already published and the last one is submitted for publication. First, we show that the...
