Program Summary:

Statistical sample designs are often employed for data collection in surveys. Deming states that “Sampling is not mere substitution of partial coverage for a total coverage. Sampling is the science and art of controlling and measuring the reliability of useful statistical information through the theory of probability.”

In this presentation, we review some survey sampling techniques, their underlying assumptions and principles primarily within sampling without replacement context, and how these techniques help provide reliability.  These techniques include, some sample designs, computing estimates, sample sizes, and sample selection schemes. The sample selection schemes include simple random sampling, systematic sampling, probability proportional to size sampling, and dollar unit sampling.
