Ranked Set Sampling: 65 Years Improving the Accuracy in Data Gathering is an advanced survey technique which seeks to improve the likelihood that collected sample data presents a good representation of the population and minimizes the costs associated with obtaining them. The main focus of many agricultural, ecological and environmental studies is the development of well designed, cost-effective and efficient sampling designs, giving RSS techniques a particular place in resolving the disciplinary problems of economists in application contexts, particularly experimental economics. This book seeks to place RSS at the heart of economic study designs.

Key Features

  • Focuses on how researchers should manipulate RSS techniques for specific applications
  • Discusses RSS performs in popular statistical models, such as regression and hypothesis testing
  • Includes a discussion of open theoretical research problems
  • Provides mathematical proofs, enabling researchers to develop new models


An essential guide for early career econometricians and statisticians seeking to develop well designed, cost-effective and efficient sampling studies
