Abstract
The application of statistical techniques to the verification of arms control agreements has been the subject of much discussion as the drafting of a CFE treaty progresses. A previous paper discussed the principles involved in using random sampling to select sites for on-site inspection in the verification of the CFE Baseline Data Exchange. The paper will discuss the use of stratification to improve the effectiveness of sampling and the problem of inspection ambiguity.
