Analysis of Complex Sample Surveys Made Simple

by Karen


BuskirkPhotoBandWComplex Surveys use a sampling technique other than a simple random sample. Terms you may have heard in this area include cluster sampling, stratified sampling, oversampling, two-stage sampling, and primary sampling unit.

Complex Samples require statistical methods that take the exact sampling design into account to ensure accurate results.

This webinar, by guest presenter Dr. Trent Buskirk, will give you an overview of the common sampling techniques, and their effects on data analysis.

I usually need to use complex sample designs to conduct health outcomes research in my field of Urology.

Please email me. I need some tutoring. I can pay.

Hi Omer,

I don’t do tutoring, but many of our readers do. Perhaps one of them can respond with their web site so you can get in touch with them.

Some other types of sampling include Multi-stage sampling and Systematic random sampling. It is not necessary to conduct the complete enumeration. But a sample of some suitable size is taken from the entire population and then study is carried out using this sample.

Will try to dig deep in analyzing complex data sets.
