Lecture 4: Introduction to Simple Random Sampling Reading: Lohr Chapter 2, sections 1, 2 and 3 Set-up/Notation Kinds of Sampling Sampling schemes that result in SRS STAT 651: Survey Sampling Methods, Kaizar – p.2/13
The Set-Up We have a population that we would like to learn about. Assume: There are a finite number of units in the population. A sampling unit is the same as an observation unit. We use probability sampling to select a sample. We use the sample to learn about the population. A probability sampling is any method of sampling such that each unit in the population has a known probability of selection into the sample. STAT 651: Survey Sampling Methods, Kaizar – p.3/13
