The ranked set sampling method uses the ranking information of the units to provide a more representative sample of the population to the survey designers. The sampling distribution is closer to the actual distribution of the population. In this article, to ensure the effectiveness of ranked set sampling in extensive surveys conducted to prepare official statistics, we intend to use this sampling method to improve the efficiency of key estimates of household expenditure and income survey of the Statistics Center of Iran. The results show that using ranked set sampling to design household expenditure and income surveys can improve the efficiency of key estimates of the study, provided that the ranking variable used has a high correlation with the main variables of the study. Obviously, in the absence of a suitable and available variable for ranking the units, the information of the sampling frame can be used to construct a ranking variable correlated with the key variables of the survey.
Keywords: Household Expenditure and Income Survey, Ranked Set Sampling, Expected Income.
