Optimal prediction for a finite population total with connected designs and related model-based results. (English) Zbl 0588.62018
Postulating a general super-population model concerning a finite population vector of variate values we derive an optimal member in the class of model and design unbiased predictors for the population total based on a ”connected design”. Some results relating to design unbiased and ”model-design-unbiased” predictions separately are also obtained.
