Summary

Emphasizing the practical aspects of survey problems, ELEMENTARY SURVEY SAMPLING (WITH CD-ROM) is an ideal introduction to survey sampling. The textbook first covers the role of sample surveys in the modern world, then includes individual chapters that introduce a sample survey design or estimation procedure by describing the pertinent practical problem. You'll see the methodology proposed for solving the problem and the details of the estimation procedure, including a compact presentation of the formulas needed to complete the analysis, followed by a practical example worked out in complete detail. Chapter-ending exercises give you practice with the techniques and stretch your grasp of ideas.
