Scheaffer, Mendenhall, and Ott present an updated edition of their introductory textbook for students in business, social sciences, health sciences, environmental studies, natural resource management, and other areas that make extensive use of sampling. With an emphasis on the application of survey sampling, and not the underlying statistical theory, it requires only an elementary course in statistics as a prerequisite. The sixth edition includes new material on weighting, imputation, and adjustments for nonresponse; the "bootstrapping" technique for establishing margins of error and confidence intervals; an adaptive sampling technique for improving estimates while fieldwork is in progress; updated data sets; and new exercises. Data files are included on the accompanying CD-ROM. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
