Introduction to Variance Estimation - Springer Series in Statistics (Paperback)Kirk Wolter (author)
- Not available
Now available in paperback, this book is organized in a way that emphasizes both the theory and applications of the various variance estimating techniques. Results are often presented in the form of theorems; proofs are deleted when trivial or when a reference is readily available. It applies to large, complex surveys; and to provide an easy reference for the survey researcher who is faced with the problem of estimating variances for real survey data.

From the reviews:
"The main purpose of this book is to describe a number of techniques for variance estimation that have been suggested in recent years, and to demonstrate how they may be used in the context of modern complex sample surveys. The various techniques to be described are widely scattered through the statistical literature; currently, there is no systematic treatment of this methodology that brings together the state of the art in one manuscript. The book accomplishes this objective." (Dmitry Ostrouchov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1050, 2005)
