Optimization of a survey sub-sample reweighting: Application to a sub-sample of the 2007 - 2008 French National Travel Survey

We propose a method of optimizing the reweighting of a survey sub-sample. The objective is to avoid an over-dispersion of the calibration weights and too large variances, induced by a small number of degrees of freedom when the number of auxiliary variables is large. Auxiliary variables are chosen so as to obtain a satisfactory precision of the estimates at the domain level. Variances are estimated by means of the method proposed by Deville and Särndal (1992) which formalises the calibration techniques. The method is applied to a sub-sample of the 2007-2008 French National Travel Survey.
