Most survey work involves sampling from finite populations. There are two parts to any sampling strategy. First there is the selection procedure, the manner in which the sample units are to be selected from the finite population. Then there is the estimation procedure which prescribes how inferences are to be made from the sample to the population as a whole. These inferences may be either enumerative or analytical.
