Cyclic polygonal designs with block size 3 and joint distance α=2


Polygonal designs are useful in survey sampling in terms of balanced sampling plans excluding contiguous units (BSECs) and balanced sampling plans excluding adjacent units (BSAs). In this article, the method of cyclic shifts has been used for the construction of cyclic polygonal designs (in terms of BSAs) with block size k=3 and λ=1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 for joint distance α=2 and 51 new designs for treatments v ≤ 100 are given.
