COMPARISON OF ESTIMATIONS FOR TRAFFIC FLOW

JAEMFOERELSE AV ESTIMATORER FOER SKATTNING AV TRAFIKFLOEDEN

Five different estimators for traffic flow on the Swedish roads are compared. Four of these estimators use the principle of ratio estimation. The main comparison is based on an empirical study of the sampling distributions of the estimators. It is concluded that the most appropriate estimator in this application is the one containing an average of a number of ratios. Some theoretical aspects are also discussed where an attempt is made to justify the recommended estimator. (A)
