INTRODUCTION TO SURVEY SAMPLING-This is a foundation course in sample survey methods and principles.  The instructors will present, in a non-technical manner, basic sampling techniques such as simple random sampling, systematic sampling, stratification, and cluster sampling.  The instructors will provide opportunities to implement sampling techniques in a series of exercises that accompany each topic.  This is a two day course. Participants should not expect to obtain sufficient background in this course to master survey sampling.  They can expect to become familiar with basic techniques well enough to converse with sampling statisticians more easily about sample design.  For more information,
