Dealing with the "aggregation points" sampling design, the problem of estimating the mean of a quantitative character is concerned; an estimate of the estimatorâ€™s variance is also proposed. Some results from a simulation study are presented. Simulations indicate that estimators proposed perform better in case of not too large number of aggregation points but extensively overlapping.}, number={2}, journal={Statistica}, author={Mecatti, Fulvia}, year={2002}, month={Jan.}, pages={285â€“297} }
