#### 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...

#### Advanced Sampling Theory with Applications

Springer 2013; US$ 119.00This book is a multi-purpose document. It can be used as a text by teachers, as a reference manual by researchers, and as a practical guide by statisticians. It covers 1165 references from different research journals through almost 1900 citations across 1194 pages, a large number of complete proofs of theorems, important results such as corollaries,... more...

#### Analysis of Health Surveys

Wiley 2011; US$ 184.00How to apply statistical methods to survey data—a guide to effective analysis of health surveys. With large health surveys becoming increasingly available for public use, researchers with little experience in survey methods are often faced with analyzing data from surveys to address scientific and programmatic questions. This practical book... more...

#### Handbook of Statistics

Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 300.00This new handbook contains the most comprehensive account of sample surveys theory and practice to date. It is a second volume on sample surveys, with the goal of updating and extending the sampling volume published as volume 6 of the Handbook of Statistics in 1988. The present handbook is divided into two volumes (29A and 29B), with a total of 41... 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...

#### Indirect Sampling

Springer 2009; US$ 149.00This book is the reference on indirect sampling and the generalised weight share method. It reviews the different developments done by the author on these subjects. In addition to the underlying theory, the book presents different possible applications that drive its interest. The reader will find in this book the answer to questions that come, inevitably,... more...
