Sampling (Statistics)

  • Adaptive Sampling Designsby George A.F. Seber; Mohammad M. Salehi

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    This 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...

  • Incomplete Categorical Data Designby Guo-Liang Tian; Man-Lai Tang

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 89.95

    Respondents to survey questions involving sensitive information, such as sexual behavior, illegal drug usage, tax evasion, and income, may refuse to answer the questions or provide untruthful answers to protect their privacy. This creates a challenge in drawing valid inferences from potentially inaccurate data. Addressing this difficulty, non-randomized... more...

  • Indirect Questioning in Sample Surveysby Arijit Chaudhuri; Tasos C. Christofides

    Springer 2013; US$ 109.00

    Indirect 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...

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...

  • Maximum Likelihood Estimation for Sample Surveysby Raymond L. Chambers; David G. Steel; Suojin Wang; Alan Welsh

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 83.95

    Sample surveys provide data used by researchers in a large range of disciplines to analyze important relationships using well-established and widely used likelihood methods. The methods used to select samples often result in the sample differing in important ways from the target population and standard application of likelihood methods can lead to... more...

  • Network and Adaptive Samplingby Arijit Chaudhuri

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 79.95

    Combining the two statistical techniques of network sampling and adaptive sampling, this book illustrates the advantages of using them in tandem to effectively capture sparsely located elements in unknown pockets. It shows how network sampling is a reliable guide in capturing inaccessible entities through linked auxiliaries. The text also explores... more...
