Sampling topics will include stratified, systematic, and cluster sampling, as well as resampling, population size estimation, and ratio estimators. The class will conclude with a treatment of experimental design issues ranging from blocking to response surface analysis. Emphasis will be placed on statistical literacy, through journal articles, as well as computational approaches to sampling design.
