Theories of Data Analysis and Statistical Inference

Part of the Statistics for Social and Behavioral Sciences book series (SSBS)


Every survey, in any field, begins conceptually with a population list, a sampling plan or sample design by which an appropriate sample is to be drawn from the population, a measurement instrument specifying the information – response variables and covariates or explanatory variables – to be obtained from the sampled population members, and an analysis plan by which the response variables, and their relation to the covariates or explanatory variables, are to be analysed.
