This manuscript is dedicated to the use of auxiliary information in survey sampling and nonresponse. We are interested in the integration of auxiliary variables in sampling methods and in the treatment of nonresponse to improve the efficiency and the precision of surveys. We also deal with the calculation of the precision of estimators. Indeed, variances rapidly become difficult to calculate when...
