Summary

Sampling methods are integral to the design of surveys and experiments, to the validity of results, and thus to the study of statistics, social science, and a variety other disciplines that use statistical data. Yet most of the available texts on the subject are either quite advanced and theoretical or too applied, descriptive, and lacking statistical results.

Sampling Methodologies with Applications offers a balanced, practical treatment of the techniques and applications of the commonly used procedures for sampling from finite populations. It keeps mathematics to a minimum, but does not avoid them entirely: it features the principle results within the text but provides their derivations in the Appendices to each chapter. In an easily followed, step-by-step presentation, the author motivates each topic with illustrations followed by examples and exercises. All of these are constructed from everyday, practical situations covering a wide variety of topics, from scholastic aptitude tests to healthcare expenditures and presidential elections.

Why wade through advanced, theoretical tomes when what you need is straightforward, practical information? Why risk missing important statistical results often omitted from more basic texts? Sampling Methodologies with Applications has everything you need, presented clearly and logically for quick access to topics central to actual practice.
