About this item
This book provides comprehensive materials on survey sampling offering learners and researchers grounded basics and progressive issues in advanced essentials of sampling theory and practice while advanced students and colleagues in the field will find research-based reflections/ examples on emerging trends from the very beginning to the advanced level. Hence it will be useful for basic and advanced courses of Survey sampling. Some of the books are available for graduate students but do not contain material for the recent developments in the area of survey sampling.
The book covers a wide spectrum of topics on the subject and some of the topics e.g. Repetitive sampling over two occasions with varying probabilities, Ranked set sampling, Fays method for Balanced repeated replications, Mirror-Match bootstrap and Controlled sampling procedures discussed here are not available in other text books. In addition, some of the materials are discussed at an advanced level.
In each section, theories are illustrated with numerical examples. At the end of each chapter theoretical as well as numerical exercises are given which can help graduate students.
- Covers a wide spectrum of topics on survey, sampling and statistics
- An ideal test book for graduate students and researchers in survey sampling theory and applications
