Part of the Lecture Notes in Statistics book series (LNS, volume 168)


The objective of statistical matching techniques is the generation of a new data set that allows even more flexible analysis than each single data set. In particular, the associations between variables never jointly observed are specified in such a completed data set. In this chapter we show whether a statistically matched file may be analyzed as if it were a single sample.
