#### Description

Methods of Survey Sampling/Applied Sampling is an applied statistical methods course, but differs from most statistics courses. It is concerned almost exclusively with the design of data collection. Little of the analysis of collected data will be discussed in the course. The course will concentrate on problems of applying sampling methods to human populations, since survey practices are more widely used in that area, and since sampling human populations poses a number particular problems not found in sampling of other types of units. The principles of sample selection, though, can be applied to many other types of populations.

The course is presented at a moderately advanced statistical level. While we will not develop the mathematical aspects of sampling theory, statistical notation and outlines of some algebraic proofs will be given. A sound background in applied statistics is necessary, since a few algebraic derivations will be presented. Little emphasis will be placed on the derivations. Nonetheless, a thorough understanding of the notation and results will be needed.
