Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This comprehensive and up-to-date monograph covers, systematically and in simple language, the theory and applications of ranked set sampling (RSS), an improved technique related to traditional simple random sampling (SRS). Strong emphasis is placed on theoretical developments in RSS. In the meanwhile, the practical orientation and broad coverage will appeal to researchers and scientists working in sampling techniques, experimental designs, nonparametric statistics, and related fields...I would highly recommend this well-written and reasonably priced book." Techometrics, February 2005"Ranked Set Sampling: Theory and Applications represents a major achievement, providing an up-to-date account of major research in ranked set sampling....this book would be a good addition to the library of anyone involved in statistical, environmental, and ecological research." Journal of the American Statistical Association, September 2005"The book is well laid out with concepts well explained...Those who are recently getting interested in the topic will find it an excellent start." Biometrics, December 2005"This is the first monograph on ranked set sampling (RSS). . The book presents a happy mixture of theory and applications. Indeed, theoretical foundations are provided with mathematical rigor, and various methods are illustrated by real or simulated data. . The book will be used as a common reference by statisticians as well as practitioners in agriculture, sociology, ecological and medical studies, etc. It can serve as a textbook for a short course at the graduate level." (Oleksandr Kukush, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1045 (20), 2004)"This comprehensive and up-to-date monograph covers, systematically and in simple language, the theory and applications of ranked set sampling (RSS) . . the practical orientation and broad coverage will appeal to researchers and scientists working in sampling techniques, experimental designs, nonparametric statistics, and related fields. . I would highly recommend this well-written and reasonably priced book to researchers and practitioners, all of whom are likely to use one or more of the methods it discusses." (Chunming Zhang, Technometrics, Vol. 47 (1), February, 2005)"This is the first book on the concept and applications of ranked set sampling. It provides a comprehensive review of the literature, and it includes many new results and novel applications. The mathematical rigor of the theoretical foundations makes it beneficial to researchers. The detailed description of various methods illustrated by real or simulated data makes it useful for scientists and practitioners . . It can serve as a reference book and as a textbook for a short course at the graduate level." (L'Enseignement Mathematique, Vol. 50 (1-2), 2004)
