ELEMENTARY SURVEY SAMPLING introduces students to the design and analysis of sample surveys via a practical, engaging approach. First, this introductory text begins with brief chapters focused on the important role that sample surveys play in the modern world. Then, each successive chapter builds on this foundation. These chapters start with the problem, describe the methodology needed for solving the problem, and provide the details of the estimation procedure using a compact presentation of the necessary formulas. Each chapter then works out the practical example in full detail. Finally, at the end of each chapter, ELEMENTARY SURVEY SAMPLING includes a wealth of exercises that enable students to continue practicing and to stretch their grasp of the content. The text includes a complete package of interactive statistical tools for implementing all the calculations; text examples are built in to the tools.
