Longitudinal survey data can arise in many different settings, e. In all of these settings the longitudinal feature implies repeated interviews of respondents from nonstationary populations, and both panel attrition and missing data present special concerns. The issues here are ones involving both design and analysis.

This course provides practical methods and tools to analyze complex survey data with a hands-on introduction to the use of specialized statistical software procedures. Relevant design features of the NCS-R, NHANES and HRS include survey weights that take into account differences in probability of selection into the sample and differences in response rates, as well as stratification and clustering in the multistage sampling procedures used in identifying the sampled households and individuals. After introducing essential concepts related to complex sample designs, the course will turn to the construction of survey weights, estimation of sampling variance, descriptive analysis, regression analysis, and finally special topics in the analysis of survey data. Participants can expect to work on homework exercises, computer lab exercises, and a final analysis project. Apply Now. Why take this course?

This new handbook contains the most comprehensive account of sample surveys theory and practice to date. It is a second volume on sample surveys, with the goal of updating and extending the sampling volume published as volume 6 of the Handbook of Statistics in The present handbook is divided into two volumes 29A and 29B , with a total of 41 chapters, covering current developments in almost every aspect of sample surveys, with references to important contributions and available software. It can serve as a self contained guide to researchers and practitioners, with appropriate balance between theory and real life applications. Each of the two volumes is divided into three parts, with each part preceded by an introduction, summarizing the main developments in the areas covered in that part. The volume contains also a large variety of applications in specialized areas such as household and business surveys, marketing research, opinion polls and censuses. The volume contains also chapters dealing with case-control studies, asymptotic properties of estimators and decision theoretic aspects.
Survey research is sometimes regarded as an easy research approach. However, as with any other research approach and method, it is easy to conduct a survey of poor quality rather than one of high quality and real value. This paper provides a checklist of good practice in the conduct and reporting of survey research. Its purpose is to assist the novice researcher to produce survey work to a high standard, meaning a standard at which the results will be regarded as credible. The paper first provides an overview of the approach and then guides the reader step-by-step through the processes of data collection, data analysis, and reporting.
Flawed data can guide even the greatest leaders to the wrong conclusions. When success hangs in the balance, you need to be absolutely sure that you're gathering the right data with the right methods. So we asked our data scientist, Christopher Peters , to craft this guide about how to collect and analyze data.
Publications Summary. Hardcopies of publications are intended primarily for those in developing countries where internet connections are limited or unavailable. Abstract: This analytical study has been described as the handbook "champion" of sampling errors and design effects in survey samples. The first part of the report describes the general features of the sample designs of 48 nationally-representative household surveys conducted under the DHS program.
