Sampling of populations : methods and applications

This book is an all-inclusive resource on the basic and most current practices in population sampling. Find the essential statistical methods for survey design and analysis, while also exploring techniques that have developed over the past decade. Understand the basic concepts and procedures that accompany real-world sample surveys, such as sampling designs, problems of missing data, statistical analysis of multistage sampling data, and nonresponse and poststratification adjustment procedures through illustrative examples that demonstrate the rationale behind common steps in the sampling process
