Workshop in Survey Sampling Techniques

Sociology 621

6 credit hours, offered annually

This is a companion course to Methods in Survey Sampling where students acquire a basic understanding of sampling principles. The workshop presents a range of practical sampling problems arising from common survey situations. Exercises include: sampling distributions, selection techniques using microcomputers, area sampling, stratification, listing and segmenting in area sampling, telephone sampling methods, and weighting to compensate for unequal probabilities of selection and unit nonresponse. Sessions cover sample designs in several developing countries as well as SRC's area sample of the United States. The workshop includes classroom sessions as well as computer laboratory sessions in which students acquire sample selection expertise on a microcomputer in an MS Windows environment, and the preparation of weights.
