Handbook of Sampling Techniques and Analysis
This comprehensive handbook describes in detail the various practical procedures of survey sampling. Emphasizing estimation as well as analysis, it covers both the traditional sampling topics and special techniques not covered in most other books, including network and adaptive sampling, multipurpose surveys, small area estimation, and hierarchical Bayesian methods. The computational aspects of sampling are presented throughout the book in example analyses of real data sets. The Handbook of Sampling Techniques and Analysis is the only up-to-date handbook available on the subject, and as such, will attract a large readership among statisticians, social scientists, and government agencies.
