Abstract: Ranked set sampling is a simple idea of great use. It was proposed half a century ago. The last 15 years or so have witnessed considerable development in the research and applications of ranked set sampling. In this paper, we give an overview on ranked set sampling. We review several variants of ranked set sampling developed since the original idea was proposed. We discuss the essence and the theoretical foundation of ranked set sampling. We present some novel applications of ranked set sampling in areas such as clinical trials, genetic quantitative trait loci mappings and others. By doing so, we wish to provide the reader with a philosophical view on ranked set sampling and shed some lights on a broader range of its applications. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007.
