Description: The mission of the Summer Institute in Survey Research Techniques is to provide rigorous and high quality graduate training in all phases of survey research, and to teach state-of-the-art practice and theory in the design, implementation, and analysis of surveys that contribute to social science goals.
The sample survey has been acclaimed by some scientists as one of the great inventions of the 20th Century. A sample survey is one of an array of research methods used widely among social scientists as well as professionals in business, public health, natural resources, law, medicine, nursing, social work, and many other domains of study. There is no widely accepted definition of what constitutes a sample survey, but such investigations are characterized by probability samples of subjects from well-defined populations, the collection of factual and attitudinal findings from the sample subjects, and the quantification of data summarized through estimation and analysis of association among collected measures
