This sample design is based on master sample: Bureau of Land Management Lotic

Details of this master sample:



Frame

This sample design started with an initial frame of 67,033 sites, based on its master sample. The criteria (based on the master sample's attributes) were then used to refine the sample frame down to 3,478 sites:

Criteria Group 1
           
  BLM District Is Equal To NORTHWEST DISTRICT OFFICE

Target Population

BLM perennial streams in the NW District, CO


Panel designs can help address sampling objectives by increasing the total number of samples at a lower overall cost. A common panel structure involves one or more panels with a high revisit frequency (e.g. an “Annual” panel), and other panels with a lower revisit frequency (e.g. a three year “Rotating” panel).

This design uses the following attributes to create the stratification shown below. Each row in the table represents a stratum. This design’s panels are also shown in the table, even if it uses only a single, default panel.
