In some situations the sample design of a survey is rather complex, consisting of fundamentally different designs in different domains. The design effect for estimates based upon the total sample is a weighted sum of the domainspecific design effects. We derive these weights under an appropriate model and illustrate their use with data from the European Social Survey (ESS).
