Develop efficient survey sample designs to optimize data for analytical purposes.

Coordinate multiple concurrent samples, deduplicating cases across different product surveys. Manage access permissions to data tables that are the email frames for advertiser surveys.

Extract appropriate signals (i.e., descriptor variables) to accurately describe frame profile and eligible sample profile as weighting benchmarks. Calculate relevant selection probabilities for sample base weights.

Calibrate respondent data to eligible frame benchmarks by developing weights using post-stratification raking procedures as necessary. Propose sample and weighting plans that advance the accuracy and precision of survey findings.

Construct the necessary weights to apply to prior unweighted survey data to allow for accurate trend analyses across multiple data collection periods. Prepare documentation on sampling and weighting used for each product survey including summary slides for stakeholder presentations.
