An Overview of Sample Design and Weighting
This is a practical book. Many techniques used by survey practitioners are not covered by standard textbooks but are necessary to do a professional job when designing samples and preparing data for analyses. In this book, we present a collection of methods that we have found most useful in our own practical work. Since computer software is essential in applying the techniques, example code is given throughout.
