# Sampling Theory and Methods

## Instructor: Calvin L. Williams, Ph.D.

## Text: Sampling of Populations

## Course Objective

This course approaches statistical sampling from a probability-based treatment
of sampling methodology. Theory and application of estimation techniques are treated using simple and
stratified random sampling, cluster sampling, and systematic sampling. It will build on your current
knowledge of probability and statistics.
The intent is to cover the prescribed text omitting those sections
that are unneeded with additional information given in the form of handouts and take home projects.
Although there will be no requirement of a specific statistical computing
package, it would be in your best interest to be familiar with a package.
Examples shown in class will be done using MatLab and SAS.
Notes are available for students wishing to use SAS.

## Current Enrollment:
