Webinar: Practical issues with dual-frame samples

13th Nov 18


Dual-frame sampling designs arise when units within the population of interest are selected via independent probability samples drawn from two frames.

These two frames make up the population of interest, and they typically overlap.

This webinar outlines practical limitations in using dual-frame samples and how these limitations might be overcome.


  • When is it appropriate to use dual frame samples and what are the upsides/ downsides in doing so.
  • Determining the extent to which dual frames overlap and the implication for our study of interest
  • Identifying all the limitations of dual-frame samples
  • Practical ways of overcoming the limitations of dual-frame samples

Learning Outcomes:

At the completion of this webinar, participants will have an enriched understanding of the benefits and limitations of using dual frame samples. In particular, how to detect problems that could arise from using dual0frame samples and how these problems can be addressed.
