Complex 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.
In this webinar, guest instructor Dr. Trent Buskirk will give you an overview of the common sampling techniques and their effects on data analysis.
Note: This training is an exclusive benefit to members of the Statistically Speaking Membership Program and part of the Stat’s Amore Trainings Series. Each Stat’s Amore Training is approximately 90 minutes long.
