MATH 405 Experimental Design and Sampling for Surveys

This course gives an introduction to survey sampling and experimental design. The topic of survey sampling covers the typical sampling methods, the calculation of estimators of population and sample size calculations. The topic of experimental design covers the typical methods of design of experiments, ANOVA (analysis of variance) for these design methods, multiple comparisons and contrast analyses. The emphasis will be on applications of the methods of survey sampling and experimental design. The computer package SAS will be required for data analysis.
