Usage of Complex Samples Procedures

Your usage of Complex Samples procedures depends on your particular needs. The primary types of users are those who:

  • Plan and carry out surveys according to complex designs, possibly analyzing the sample later. The primary tool for surveyors is the Sampling Wizard.
  • Analyze sample data files previously obtained according to complex designs. Before using the Complex Samples analysis procedures, you may need to use the Analysis Preparation Wizard.

Regardless of which type of user you are, you need to supply design information to Complex Samples procedures. This information is stored in a plan file for easy reuse.
