Keywords: Multistage ; complex survey ; scaled-weight

Complex surveys based on multistage design are commonly used to collect large population data. Stratification, clustering and unequal probability of the selection of individuals are the complexities of complex survey design. Statistical techniques such as the multilevel modeling- scaled weights technique and the standard regression - robust variance estimation technique are used to analyze the complex survey data. Both statistical techniques take into account the complexities of complex survey data but the ways are different. Performance of these two techniques will be examined by Monte Carlo simulation based on Canadian Heart Health Survey (CHHS) or Statistics Canada 2012-Canadian Community Health Survey.
