Discussion: Sampling Methods
Sampling refers to the collection of data. The five primary sampling methods are discussed in section 1.2 of the textbook for this module and include:
- Simple random sampling
- Stratified sampling
- Cluster sampling
- Systematic sampling
- Convenience sampling
Please explain ONE of these types of sampling methods and give an example of how it could be used. For example, you could explain simple random sampling and use an example of how it could be conducted by using a random number table to select employees to interview in your workplace about employee morale.
Please remember to be specific and to put the discussion into your own words. Do not just copy and paste technical information from the textbook or another source. Really strive to understand how the sampling method could be used.
Week 1: Provide your initial discussion post to the question. Be sure to include references to any resources you used. You should use at least one resource to help you with your initial discussion. Course Materials/Bibliography
