ABSTRACT
The article summarizes the findings of Great Britain's Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) research on the use of its administrative data to develop an alternative sampling frame for the Family Resources Survey (FRS), the leading household survey for private household income data collection. It explains that the DWP uses the small-users Postcode Address File with suitable administrative data sources. Findings suggest important considerations for sampling future British household surveys.
