The difference between a descriptive and an analytical survey has a profound effect on the nature of the survey design.  In a descriptive survey, attention usually centers on the estimation of the state of a finite population at some point in time. In an analytical survey, attention centers on the estimation of relationships between (dependent and independent) variables, for a conceptually infinite population.  Attention centers on making inferences about the process generating or acting on the population, not about the population itself.
