Modern Sampling Methods

Theory, Experimentation, Application


Palmer O. Johnson and Munamarty S. Rao

Modern Sampling Methods: Theory, Experimentation, Application was first published in 1959. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

Of both theoretical and practical use to statisticians and research workers using sampling techniques, this book describes five new multi-stage sampling models. The models are described, compared, and evaluated through a skillfully designed experiment. The number of stages in all five models is the same; the manner in which they differ is in the particular sampling technique applied at each of the several stages. Recommendations are given on the choice of the most suitable model for a given practical situation. A mathematical appendix presents two lemmas that are useful for derivation of sampling formulas in multi-stage sampling.

Palmer O. Johnson was a professor of statistics and education at the University of Minnesota. He is the author of Curricular Problems in Science at the College Level (Minnesota, 1930) and Aspects of Land Grant College Education (Minnesota, 1934).

Munamarty S. Rao was a research associate at the University of Minnesota and an industrial statistical consultant.
