Methods of Survey Sampling/Applied Sampling is an applied statistical methods course. It differs from most statistics courses because it is concerned almost exclusively with the design of data collection rather than with analysis of collected data. The focus of the course will be on problems of sampling human populations. While the principles of sample selection can be applied to many other types of problems, sample survey practices are widely used in the study of human populations. Sampling human populations poses unique and challenging problems that well illustrate the application of the methods. The course is presented at a moderately advanced statistical level. We will not develop the mathematical aspects of sampling theory, but a sound background in applied statistics is necessary, since a few mathematical derivations will be presented. And though the emphasis will not be on mathematical derivations, a thorough understanding of the mathematical formulations presented will be needed. The aims of the course are to teach basic ideas of sampling from an applied perspective and to provide experience with life-like problems. The course will cover the main techniques used in sampling practice: simple random sampling, stratification, systematic selection, cluster sampling, multistage sampling, and probability proportional to size sampling. These methods will be examined further in the context of two particular types of sample designs, area sampling and telephone sampling. The course will also cover topics such as sampling frames, cost models, sampling error estimation techniques, non-sampling errors, and compensating for missing data.
