Description: Corporate inventory systems have historically had a greater spatial and temporal intensity than is common in the public sector. For many corporations, these inventory systems might be described as dynamic in that current estimates rely on a small amount of recent data and a large amount of information resulting from the imputation of older data that have been subjected to various growth and mortality models. Usually the "best available" models are used for this purpose, with little attention paid to any population dynamics that may have occurred since development of the models. This paper gives the theory and an example application of a family of sample designs that possess continuous forest inventory (CFI) attributes. This family of Pseudo-CFI sample designs was devised to facilitate the incorporation of a continuous monitoring and calibration mechanism for the imputed data.
