 weighted sampling Explanation:ウエイトバック集計（ウエイトバックシュウケイ） 回収されたサンプル(標本)を母集団の構成にあわせて集計する方法。母集団と回収サンプルの構成比が異なる場合に、属性の抽出率や回収率の違いを補正し母集団構成比を復元する場合などに使用する。国勢調査など既知の正確なデータに集計値をウエイトバックすることが多い。 http://mnri.macromill.com/library/dictionary.html Weighted sample variance Typically when a mean is calculated it is important to know the variance and standard deviation of that mean. When a weighted mean μ * is used, the variance of the weighted sample is different from the variance of the unweighted sample. The biased weighted sample variance is defined similarly to the normal biased sample variance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weighted_mean weighted sampling　　ウェイトづきサンプリング http://www.qmss.jp/qmss/glossary/stat-glossary-ej.htm#W

Weighted sample variance

Typically when a mean is calculated it is important to know the variance and standard deviation of that mean. When a weighted mean μ * is used, the variance of the weighted sample is different from the variance of the unweighted sample. The biased weighted sample variance is defined similarly to the normal biased sample variance:

weighed-back data sampling method

Explanation:
Sampling technique. This is a Japanese statistical jargon. My translation is to clarify root meaning of this JP word.

Example sentence(s):
• This procedure performs iterative proportional fitting in contingency table analysis. We did not trim our weights as we had artificially distorted city ratios data that had to be weighted back to the population targets - which involves some smaller an
• Weighing gathered from the sample back to the overall population .. If one person in a sample (with a sampling weight of 18) had ... weight, the sampling design is said to be self-weighted. ... , in a lot of cases, we have totals at the population level,
