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.

Thoroughly updated and revised, this second edition of the bestselling Soil Sampling and Methods of Analysis presents several new chapters in the areas of biological and physical analysis and soil sampling. Reflecting the burgeoning interest in soil ecology, new contributions describe the growing number and assortment of new microbiological techniques, describe in-depth methods, and demonstrate new tools that characterize the dynamics and chemistry of soil organic matter and soil testing for plant nutrients. A completely new section devoted to soil water reviews up-to-date field- and laboratory-based methods for saturated and unsaturated soil hydraulic properties. Retaining the easy-to-follow, “cookbook” style of the original, this second edition provides a compilation of soil analytical techniques that are fast, straightforward, and relatively easy-to-use. Heavily referenced, peer-reviewed contributions from approximately 150 specialists make this a practical manual and resource handbook that describes a wide array of methods, both conventional and cutting-edge, for analyzing the chemical, biological, biochemical, and physical properties of many different soil types. Including several “primer” chapters that cover the overall principles and concepts behind the latest techniques, the book presents sufficient detail on the materials and procedures to characterize the potential and limitation of each method. It covers recent improvements in methodology, outlines current methods, and characterizes the best methods available for selecting the appropriate analysis technique. Promoting the research and practical application of findings in soil science, Soil Sampling and Methods of Analysis, Second Edition continues to be the most current, detailed, comprehensive tool for researchers and practitioners working with soil.

Statistics in Practice, A new series of practical books outlining the use of statistical techniques in a wide range of application areas: Human and Biological Sciences Earth and Environmental Sciences Industry, Commerce and Finance Covering both survey sampling and survey analysis, the authors aim to provide the reader with a unified coverage of the practical tools of basic and more advanced survey sampling and estimation. Contents include: Sampling design. The design effect statistic. Use of auxiliary information. Methods for handling missing data. Variance and covariance estimation. Design-based analysis of frequency tables. Multivariate methods for complex surveys. Fully worked examples and case studies taken from official statistics and real surveys on health and social sciences are used to illustrate the various methods. Additional case studies are presented covering a range of topics such as business surveys, socio-economic surveys and educational surveys. Selected commercially available software packages for complex surveys are discussed with demonstrations using data from the case studies. Intended primarily for those involved in the planning, implementation or analysis of descriptive or analytical surveys and opinion polls, the book will also be of interest to researchers and students in many disciplines. In addition, the book is well suited for use on courses in survey sampling.

A trusted classic on the key methods in populationsampling—now in a modernized and expanded new edition Sampling of Populations, Fourth Edition continues toserve as an all-inclusive resource on the basic and most currentpractices in population sampling. Maintaining the clear andaccessible style of the previous edition, this book outlines theessential statistical methodsfor survey design and analysis, whilealso exploring techniques that have developed over the pastdecade. The Fourth Edition successfully guides the reader throughthe basic concepts and procedures that accompany real-world samplesurveys, such as sampling designs, problems of missing data,statistical analysis of multistage sampling data, and nonresponseand poststratification adjustment procedures. Rather than employ aheavily mathematical approach, the authors present illustrativeexamples that demonstrate the rationale behind common steps in thesampling process, from creating effective surveys to analyzingcollected data. Along with established methods, modern topics aretreated through the book's new features, which include: A new chapter on telephone sampling, with coverage of decliningresponse rates, the creation of "do not call" lists, and thegrowing use of cellular phones A new chapter on sample weighting that focuses on adjustmentsto weight for nonresponse, frame deficiencies, and the effects ofestimator instability An updated discussion of sample survey data analysis thatincludes analytic procedures for estimation and hypothesistesting A new section on Chromy's widely used method of takingprobability proportional to size samples with minimum replacementof primary sampling units An expanded index with references on the latest research in thefield All of the book's examples and exercises can be easily workedout using various software packages including SAS, STATA, andSUDAAN, and an extensive FTP site contains additional data sets.With its comprehensive presentation and wealth of relevantexamples, Sampling of Populations, Fourth Edition is anideal book for courses on survey sampling at theupper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also a valuablereference for practicing statisticians who would like to refreshtheir knowledge of sampling techniques.
