    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Sample surveys are widely used to provide statistical data on an extensive range of topics for both research and administrative purposes. Numerous surveys have been conducted in such disciplines as sociology, social psychology, demography, political science, economics, education, and public health to describe the characteristics of the populations under study and to develop, test, and refine research hypotheses. Central governments make considerable use of surveys to gather information about the conditions of their populations in terms of employment and unemployment, income and expenditure, housing conditions, education, nutrition, health, travel patterns, and many other subjects. Local governments equally make use of surveys for local planning purposes"-- Provided by publisher.
