From the publisher’s description: Since the publication of the first edition in 2013, there have been important developments in making inferences from nonprobability samples, in address-based sampling (ABS), and in the application of machine learning techniques for survey estimation. New to this revised and expanded edition:
Details on new functions in the PracTools package
Additional machine learning methods to form weighting classes
New coverage of nonlinear optimization algorithms for sample allocation
Reflecting effects of multiple weighting steps (nonresponse and calibration) on standard errors
A new chapter on nonprobability sampling
Additional examples, exercises, and updated references throughout
