One challenging issue with sampling is the discrepancy between the selection
units and the observation units. Observation units are the main objects that we

... This is an introduction to probability sampling. With probability samples, we
can calculate sampling errors; we can also eliminate selection biases (via random sampling) and non-response and estimation errors can be contained within
known limits. We will present some of the various survey sampling d ...
Taylor's law (also known as Taylor’s power law) is an empirical law in ecology that relates the variance of the number of individuals of a species per unit area of habitat to the corresponding mean by a power law relationship.
