Thanks to Kurt and Mark for their thorough
suggestions.  I look forward to working through their
notes.   I'd like to ask for a bit more clarification
on one point, though.

Both Mark and Kurt noted that they believe that the
pieces I'd need to work in the sampling statistics are
available, I'd just need to piece them together.

What are the pieces I'd use to put this together? 
Thanks in advance for all help - PB.
