Full course description

The purpose of this course is to provide background on how features such as stratification, clustering, and unequal sample selection probabilities can invalidate the assumptions underlying traditional statistical techniques, those implicitly assuming a simple random sampling with replacement design. This is not a course on sample design. Rather, it is a course on the secondary analysis of survey data sets derived from a sample design involving one of the aforementioned features. The formulaic modifications these features introduce are demonstrated for a wide range of statistical analyses using the SURVEY family of SAS/STAT® procedures (Version 9.4 or later). Examples in class and assignments give students exposure to analyzing publically available data produced from nationally representative health surveys such as the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the National Immunization Survey (NIS), and the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES).
