## Statistical Matching: Theory and Practice

Statistical Matching: Theory and Practice (Wiley Series in Survey Methodology)

There is more statistical data produced in today’s modern society than ever before. This data is analysed and cross-referenced for innumerable reasons. However, many data sets have no shared element and are harder to combine and therefore obtain any meaningful inference from. Statistical matching allows just that; it is the art of combining information from different sources (particularly sample surveys)...
