The Use of Indices in Surveys
AbstractThe paper deals with some new indices for ordinal data that arise from sample surveys. Their aim is to measure the degree of concentration to the âpositiveâ or ânegativeâ answers in a given question. The properties of these indices are examined. Moreover, methods for constructing confidence limits for the indices are discussed and their performance is evaluated through an extensive simulation study. Finally, the values of the indices defined and their confidence intervals are calculated for an example with real data
