Simple Random Sampling

Estimates of population mean, total, proportion and variance and their sampling properties.
Confidence limits, use of normal approximation.
Auxiliary information, ratio and regression estimators.
(4.5 weeks)

Stratified Samples

Definitions, weighting and estimators.
Optimal allocation, poststratification.
(2 weeks)

Unbiased Estimation for Cluster and Two-Stage Sampling

Single-stage, two-stage, and multi-stage cluster sampling.
Fixed and random clusters.
With-replacement and without-replacement sampling of PSU's.
Approximate variance estimators.
(4 weeks)

Advanced Topics

Variance estimation, categorical data analysis, regression in complex surveys.
