Abstract

Inclusion probabilities are design dependent and should be furnished with the design elements. Inclusion probability of an element in the population is the probability that the element will be chosen in a sample. In this paper the inclusion probabilities in the case of ranked set sampling design and some of its variations are furnished. This paper provides good and interesting examples of sampling designs for which the inclusion probabilities are not equal.
