Institution:

In this course, students will explore statistical techniques for designing and analyzing complex survey designs. Sample surveys are used to obtain data on demography, health, and development; to measure attitudes and beliefs; to estimate natural resources; to evaluate the impact of social programs; along with many other uses. The proper design and analysis of these surveys is crucial to their utility. We will cover topics including survey design, ratio estimation, regression estimation, poststratification, imputation, and survey error. We will also make frequent use of real (and often messy) survey data through assignments and projects. Background should include hypothesis testing, regression modeling, and estimation.
