#### Statistical Methods and the Improvement of Data Quality

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Statistical Methods and the Improvement of Data Quality contains the proceedings of The Small Conference on the Improvement of the Quality of Data Collected by Data Collection Systems, held on November 11-12, 1982, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The conference provided a forum for discussing the use of statistical methods to improve data quality, with emphasis... more...

#### Indirect Questioning in Sample Surveys

Springer 2013; US$ 109.00Indirect questioning is a crucial topic in surveys of human populations. When the issue is about a stigmatizing characteristic (for example about illegal drug use), standard survey methodologies are destined to fail because, as expected, people are not willing to reveal incriminating information or information violating their privacy. Indirect... more...

#### Sample Size Methodology

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95One of the most important problems in designing an experiment or a survey is sample size determination and this book presents the currently available methodology. It includes both random sampling from standard probability distributions and from finite populations. Also discussed is sample size determination for estimating parameters in a Bayesian setting... more...

#### Adaptive Sampling Designs

Springer 2012; US$ 39.95This book aims to provide an overview of some adaptive techniques used in estimating parameters for finite populations where the sampling at any stage depends on the sampling information obtained to date. The sample adapts to new information as it comes in. These methods are especially used for sparse and clustered populations.Written by two acknowledged... more...

#### Spatial Microsimulation for Rural Policy Analysis

Springer 2012; US$ 129.00The aim of this book is to explore the challenges facing rural communities and economies and to demonstrate the potential of spatial microsimulation for policy and analysis in a rural context. This is done by providing a comprehensive overview of a particular spatial microsimulation model called SMILE (Simulation Model of the Irish Local Economy).... more...

#### Maximum Likelihood Estimation for Sample Surveys

CRC Press 2012; US$ 87.95Introduction Nature and role of sample surveys Sample designs Survey data, estimation and analysis Why analysts of survey data should be interested in maximum likelihood estimation Why statisticians should be interested in the analysis of survey data A sample survey example Maximum likelihood estimation for infinite populations Bibliographic notes... more...
