In this paper, I derive the distribution of an on-site survey sample that is truncated from above. By bootstrapping the conditional expectation with and without upper truncation, I show that the differences are statistically significant. I conclude that ad-hoc truncation (upper truncation) might not be the best solution to homogenize the population, rather semi-parametric methods such as Latent Class Models should be used to identify different classes of homogeneous population.
