Title: Central limit theorem for variable size simple random sampling from a finite population

Abstract

This paper introduces a sampling plan for finite populations herein called ''variable size simple random sampling'' and compares properties of estimators based on it with results from the usual fixed size simple random sampling without replacement. Necessary and sufficient conditions (in the spirit of Hajek) for the limiting distribution of the sample total (or sample mean) to be normal are given. 19 refs.
