Title: A comparison of two estimates of standard error for a ratio-of-means estimator for a mapped-plot sample design in southeast Alaska.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Comparisons of estimated standard error for a ratio-of-means (ROM) estimator are presented for forest resource inventories conducted in southeast Alaska between 1995 and 2000. Estimated standard errors for the ROM were generated by using a traditional variance estimator and also approximated by bootstrap methods. Estimates of standard error generated by both traditional and bootstrap methods were similar. Percentage differences between the traditional and bootstrap estimates of standard error for productive forest acres and for gross cubic-foot growth were generally greater than respective differences for nonproductive forest acres, net cubic volume, or nonforest acres.

Keywords: Sampling, inventory (forest), error estimation
