Filling a gap in the current literature, this oneofakind book describes both the theory and practical applications of survey research with an emphasis on the statistical aspects of survey methods. <p> The book begins with a brief historic overview of survey research methods followed by a discussion that details the needed first steps for carrying out a survey, including the definition of a target population, the selection of a sampling frame, and the outline of a questionnaire with several examples that include common errors to avoid in the wording of questions. Throughout the book, the author provides an accessible discussion on the methodological problems that are associated with the survey process, outlining real data and examples while also providing insight on the future of survey research. Chapter coverage explores the various aspects of the survey process and the accompanying numerical techniques, including: <ul> <li> <div>Simple and composite sampling designs</div> <li> <div>Estimators</div> <li> <div>Data collection and editing</div> <li> <div>The quality of results</div> <li> <div>The nonresponse problem</div> <li> <div>Weighting adjustments and methods</div> <li> <div>Disclosure control</div> </ul> <p> The final chapter addresses the growing popularity of Web surveys, and the associated methodological problems are discussed, including solutions to common pitfalls. Exercises are provided throughout with selected answers included at the end of the book, while a related Web site features additional solutions to exercises and a downloadable demo version of the Blaise system of computerassisted interviewing. Access to the freely available SimSam software is also available on the related Web site and provides readers with the tools needed to simulate samples from finite populations as well as visualize the effects of sample size, nonresponse, and the use of different estimation procedures. <p> <i>Applied Survey Methods</i> is an excellent book for courses on survey research and nonresponse in surveys at the upperundergraduate and graduate levels. It is also a useful reference for practicing statisticians and survey methodologists who work in both government and private research sectors. A Survey Of Computational Physics RRP $137.95 Computational physics is a rapidly growing subfield of computational science, in large part because computers can solve previously intractable problems or simulate natural processes that do not have analytic solutions. The next step beyond Landau's "First Course in Scientific Computing" and a followup to Landau and Paez's "Computational Physics," this text presents a broad survey of key topics in computational physics for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, including new discussions of visualization tools, wavelet analysis, molecular dynamics, and computational fluid dynamics. By treating science, applied mathematics, and computer science together, the book reveals how this knowledge base can be applied to a wider range of realworld problems than computational physics texts normally address. Designed for a one or twosemester course, "A Survey of Computational Physics" will also interest anyone who wants a reference on or practical experience in the basics of computational physics. The text includes a CDROM with supplementary materials, including Java, Fortran, and C programs; animations; visualizations; color figures; interactive Java applets; codes for MPI, PVM, and OpenDX; and a PVM tutorial.Accessible to advanced undergraduates Realworld problemsolving approach Java codes and applets integrated with text Accompanying CDROM contains codes, applets, animations, and visualization files Companion Web site includes videos of lectures Website Password Organizer, A Peering Cow RRP $18.99 Keep all of your internet website passwords and logins in one location.
