Methods Workshop: Survey Statistics
This talk will review the concepts of probability and non-probability sampling, sampling with and without replacement, and introduce the finite population correction factor. We introduce the major sampling designs, how to calculate sample weights, and how to use Stata's "svyset" command to prepare data for analyses that account for the sampling design. We will then demonstrate how to analyze data with these characteristics.
