SUMMARY

The aim of this book is to make a comprehensive review on some of the research topics in the area of survey sampling which has not been covered in any book yet. The proposed book aims at making a comprehensive review of applications of Bayes procedures, Empirical Bayes procedures and their ramifications (like linear Bayes estimation, restricted Bayes least square prediction, constrained Bayes estimation, Bayesian robustness) in making inference from a finite population sampling. Parimal Mukhopadhyay is Professor at the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Calcutta. He received his Ph.D. degree in Statistics from the University of Calcutta in 1977. He also served as a faculty member in the University of Ife, Nigeria, Moi University, Kenya, University of South Pacific, Fiji Islands and held visiting positions at University of Montreal, University of Windsor, Stockholm University, University of Western Australia, etc. He has to his credit more than fifty research papers in Survey Sampling, some co-authored, three text books on Statistics and three research monographs in Survey Sampling. He is a member of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and an elected member of the International Statistical Institute
