In this webinar, Dr. Mansour Fahimi details how Address Based Sampling (ABS) survey protocols can provide the most effective survey solution for the surveillance of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Address Based Sampling (ABS) survey protocols can provide the most effective survey solution for the surveillance of the COVID-19 pandemic.
By relying on the most complete list of addresses in the US based on the enhanced version of the Delivery Sequence File (DSF) of the USPS, this webinar will detail how an ABS survey protocol can help your organization obtain scientific and measurable estimates of infection rates in the country. Fundamental to this goal are surveys that employ probability-based sampling techniques that can provide full coverage of the entire US population.
Whether the needed data are to be collected through mailing test kits or in-person testing, we will discuss how our critical refinements of the DSF evolve this basic delivery database into a bonified sampling frame for complex survey research applications. In particular, we will review the host of ancillary data about households and individuals MSG can provide for all ~130 million addresses in the nation.
