Post a reply: Result comparison of two SMART surveys

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

I want to compare results from two SMART surveys conducted at two different times one in 2014 and other in 2015. In 2014, the sample (multi-stage cluster sampling) was selected from three areas but only from 8 segments. In 2015 same methodology and design was used as 2014, but this time, samples have been selected from 26 segments, covering the whole areas. Now, is it acceptable it the results are compared?
(In any particular areas, the segments or sub-divisions are identical, the design effect was calculated as 1.0)
