“A wonderful resource for professionals who utilize survey sampling methodology. It provides indepth

information for readers on ways to improve survey schemes.” 

Joseph C. Kush, Ph.D.

“This updated edition is a welcome addition to the field of survey sampling. Kalton provides a

concise and accessible approach to the design of complex sample surveys. New or expanded

topics address sampling challenges in an online world, issues of missing data, variance estimation

and adaptations of sampling methods for hard-to-reach populations. I’m looking forward to using

this 2nd edition in my sampling course!”
