§    ABSTRACT: Mid term impact evaluation of any program/projects is presently in vogue in developing countries. The allocation of samples in different strata based on phased implementation needs special attention due to its temporal impact on the units. We have considered the problem of allocation of sample size in different strata for impact evaluation of the development programme. We have proposed a method of sample allocation, which can be used if the development programme is implemented in different phases.

§    KEYWORDS: Stratified sampling; impact evaluation; allocation of samples; weight for sample size.
