Intended for the working professional, it offers a practical look at the basic concepts and procedures of sample design with a minimum of mathematical formality and technical jargon. Specifically designed as a user-friendly guide, it discusses the various procedures for drawing a sample (e.g., systematic sampling and probability proportionate to size sampling) in a step-by-step manner that readers can follow almost like a manual. In addition, the book makes use of numerous demonstrations and examples, instead of extended mathematical proofs, for the purpose of giving the reader a clear understanding of the rational for procedures used in sampling. The volume is a revision and expansion of an earlier text that takes into account major developments in sampling methodology over the past decade.
