STAT 506 - Sampling Theory and Methods ANGEL Department of Statistics Eberly College of Science Home Lesson 3: Unequal Probability Sampling Submitted by gfj100 on Tue, 12/01/2009 - 09:35 Reading assignment for Lesson 3: Ch. 6.1, 6.2, 6.4 of Sampling by Steven Thompson, 2nd edition. This lesson starts with the rationale for using unequal probability sampling in section 3.1. We then discuss in section 3.2 the Hansen-Hurwitz estimator which may be used when the sampling is with replacement. In section 3.3, we introduce the Horvitz-Thompson estimator which can be used when the sampling is with or without replacement. In section 4, a small population example is used to illustrate some properties of these two estimators. Through this example, one can see that both estimators are unbiased. Lesson 3 Objectives Upon successful completion of this lesson, you will be able to: know why and when to use unequal probability sampling, how to perform unequal probability sampling,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
