STAT7029 is a course that deals with two of the most important approaches to collecting research data - surveys and experiments.

The first half of the course will focus on experimental design and will cover topics such as the analysis of variance, the completely randomised design, the randomized complete block design, Latin squares, factorial designs and if time permits nested designs.

Survey sampling topics will be covered in the second half of the course and may include: simple random sampling, with and without replacement; estimation of population total, mean and proportion; subpopulation inference; systematic sampling; stratified sampling; ratio estimation; unequal probability sampling, including the Hansen and Hurwitz estimator and the Horvitz-Thompson estimator; regression estimation; and estimation of population size.

  1. Select, design and show a deep understanding of an appropriate method of data collection for a research project.
  2. Demonstrate a high level of understanding of statistical survey sampling techniques.
  3. Derive and apply suitable estimation procedures to analyse the results of a routine sample survey.
