Wow. Thanks everyone for your input! I just came across the following reference. In Chaudhuri's and Stenger's "Survey Sampling: Theory and Methods" they mention (Chapter 2, pp 5557) "representative" sampling strategies. (If I can, I'll scan the few pages in and post them up somewhere so all can see). However, this book is rather hard to read and understand, so I don't know if this is the same flavor of the term "representative" that I mentioned in my original post. Specifically, the pages reference a paper by Hajek (1959) "Optimum strategy and other problems in probability sampling" (Cas. Pest. Mat. 84, 387473) where Hajek mentions various sampling stratagies and some (statistical) conditions that "representative samples" meet. I'm having a hard time tracking down this paper, so I don't know exactly if this is what I'm looking for. Anyone heard of such conditions?
