Summary A landmark selection of the master statistician's best work
"Leslie Kish's major contributions to the practice of survey sampling have improved the rigor and quality of sample surveys throughout the world. The way Kish thought about problems is perhaps even more important than his many methodological contributions: he invariably started with a practical problem and found solutions of broad applicability." - Ivan Fellegi, Chief Statistician of Canada
Leslie Kish, who passed away in October 2000, was one of the founding fathers of survey sampling. His 1965 book, Survey Sampling (published by Wiley), remains a classic in the field. A co-founder of the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan and of the International Association of Survey Statisticians, Kish was at once a remarkable teacher, thinker, and leader in the field of survey statistics.
This volume collects, for the first time, Kish's most important papers. The seventeen articles cover wide-ranging topics - theoretical, practical, and philosophical - from the role of probability sampling in scientific research to his ideas on professional leadership and training of statisticians. Bringing together a lifetime of research and practice, Leslie Kish: Selected Papers is both a fitting tribute to the genius of the man and a highly useful, one-volume compilation of insight into the art and science of survey statistics.
