Session Abstract

Sampling is a key component of data gathering. Forty years of experience has shown that many of the textbook schemes are not practical in reality, This results in incorrect assertions, biases and lack of precision. The course is supported by numerous first-hand examples ranging across agriculture, environmental sampling, monitoring and quarantine sampling.

The course is not meant to take the place of a text on the statistical theory of sampling. This can be found in classical texts such as that of Cochran WG (1977). It is more a bridge between the theory and field reality.
