Questions tagged [survey]

Refers to an instrument used to collect a sample from a population.

Sampling individuals for surveys in stratified populations may require more complex sampling than simple random to get more precise estimates of population parameters. Sampling design and analysis of survey data fall under 'Survey Methodology'.
