Description

Leslie Kish formulated, among other things, the "margin of error," an assessment of the accuracy of opinion polls. He was elected president of the American Statistical Association; and was a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; the American Association for the Advancement of Science; and the Royal Statistical Society of England.  A co-founder of the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan and of the International Association of Survey Statisticians, Kish was at once a remarkable teacher, thinker, and leader in the field of survey statistics. This volume collects, for the first time, Kish's most important papers.
