Module overview

The aim of this module is to develop students’ understanding of the principles and methods used to design survey sampling schemes frequently encountered within Official Statistics, and to strengthen students’ knowledge of sampling methods beyond that covered in STAT6093 (Survey Sampling), introducing methods of rotation sampling, permanent random number sampling, and approaches to achieve close to optimal allocation.

Consideration of sampling and associated estimation methods for specific surveys run by the Office for National Statistics provides a basis for learning how to assess and compare methods critically in both social and business surveys.
