Mål

The objective of the course is to introduce the wide field of survey methodology. We explore the process for planning and conducting a survey, often referred to as the survey process, consisting of a number of survey operations. You will learn how the design of each operation can affect the quality of the survey estimates, and about trade-offs between different potential errors. Among the survey operations, we focus especially on the sampling design and on the design of a questionnaire for data collection. In addition, since nonresponse is a common problem in many surveys, you will learn about various methods for dealing with nonresponse.



On completion of the course, you will be able to:

• Describe the survey process and the main potential sources of error in a survey.

• Apply some basic methods of survey sampling.

• Calculate the sampling error for some basic sampling designs.

• Apply the basic principles of questionnaire design.

• Select an appropriate strategy for dealing with nonresponse in a survey.

• Communicate the quality of a survey to a user.
