We give a brief overview of common sampling designs used in a survey setting, and introduce the principal inferential paradigms under which data from complex surveys may be analyzed. In particular, we distinguish between design-based, model-based and model-assisted approaches. Simple examples highlight the key differences between the approaches. We discuss the interplay between inferential approaches and targets of inference and the important issue of variance estimation.
