(Pre-requisite : AS 565)

Objective
This is an advanced course in Sampling Techniques that aims at describing some advanced level topics for students who wish to pursue research in Sampling Techniques. This course prepares students for undertaking research in this area. This also helps them for applications of this important subject to statistical system in the country.

Theory

UNIT I
Sampling with varying probabilities without replacement, Horvitz – Thompson estimator.

UNIT II
Ordered and unordered estimators, Sampling strategies, Midzuno-Sen, Rao-Hartley-Cochran, πPS Sampling: procedures such as Brewer, Durbin and Sampford, etc.

UNIT III
Super population concept - comparison of various sampling strategies.

UNIT IV
Post – stratified estimator, imperfect frames, multiple frames, randomized response techniques.
