An Introduction to Sample Surveys - A User's Guide (Australia)

Industrial Statistics Focal Person
Country Practices and Related Information

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) provides a high quality user-oriented and dynamic statistical service for all sectors of the community. The statistical information it makes available has an important role to play in the decision-making processes that are undertaken by governments, private businesses and individuals.

Sample surveys are used extensively by the ABS as part of its role in collecting information for these decision-making processes.

This publication is intended to be a basic and practical guide to the use of sample surveys for the purpose of conducting all types of research or information gathering. The chapters are structured in a logical sequence—from the aims and objectives of the survey through to the presentation of the results. The publication is by no means an exhaustive study of the theory and practice of sample surveys, both of which are further covered in numerous journals and books.
