For downloadabale questionnaires you might want to check out the Survey Questionniare Archive at: http://www.cadsr.udel.edu/sqa

The Survey Questionnaire Archive is an open collection of survey questionnaires used in social sciences and public policy making.

The archive is created, hosted and maintained by the Center for Applied Demography & Survey Research at the University of Delaware.

This digital collection allows users to browse, search, store and share survey instruments over the web.

The goal of the archive is to collect, capture, disseminate and preserve a wide variety of survey instruments.

All of these are good. I would add:

William Williams. 1978. A Sampler on Sampling. John Wiley.

This is a really good book including many examples of the intricacies - and there are some - of sample design and estimator selection attendent thereunto. It's out of print, but most big college libraries have it. Completely understandable by regular humans.

Frank Yates. 1949. Sampling Methods for Censuses and Surveys.

Ok, it's old. But it also has some of the cleverest sampling designs extant in it. It is also easy to understand. I have a 100 page excerpt on my bookshelf since it is also out of print. The schemes for sampling in India are just terrific!


Prof. Henderson,

Currently I am enrolled at Marquette University Law School and am taking a survey methodology workshop this semester with Prof. Daniel Blinka and Adjunct Prof. Ramesh Sachdeva. In this class, we have gone over several pieces of literatutre that may be helpful. Below is a list. Hope it is helpful!
