This introductory text on the design and analysis of sample surveys emphasizes the practical aspects of survey problems.

The authors describe the methodology proposed for solving the problem and provide the details of the estimation procedure, including a compact presentation of the formulas needed to complete the analysis. Then, a practical example is worked out in complete detail.
