Sample survey theory is concerned with methods of sampling from a finite population
of N units and then making inferences about finite population quantities on the basis of the sample data. A method of sampling coupled with a method of estimation given the sample data is often referred to as a sampling strategy, and typically corresponds to a set of rules which tell one how to obtain a sample of units from the finite population and then how to manipulate the resulting sample data to estimate the value of a quantity defined for the entire population.
