Probability Sampling Methods
This is an applied statistical methods course that focuses on the design of probability samples to be used for data collection. Sample designs are driven by analytic goals of an investigator, but this is not an analysis course. In particular, this course focuses on the principles of designing and selecting samples of individuals.
Students, researchers, business professionals who need to develop good quality surveys and/or need to apply appropriate and up-to-date statistical methods. At the conclusion of the Summer School, participants will receive a certificate for each course and with the number of hours attended.
Applied Sampling aims to provide a practical introduction to methods of survey sampling and estimation, and is the basis of survey statistical inference. Given the importance of survey research across a range of social sciences, this course is of use to anyone interested in conducting a survey to ensure the sample obtained is the best for the research question.
