Uses of Non-probability and Probability Sampling

Non-probability sampling is used in concept tests, package tests, name tests, and copy tests, where projections to the populations are usually not needed, In such studies, interest centers on the proportion of the sample that gives various responses or expresses various attitudes, Samples for these studies can be drawn using methods such as mall-intercept quota sampling. On the…

Cluster Sampling

In cluster sampling, the target population is first divided into mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive sub-populations, or clusters, Then a random sample of clusters is selected, based on a probability sampling technique such as SRS, For each selected cluster, either all the elements are included in the sample or a sample of elements is drawn probabilistically, If all…

Systematic Sampling

In systematic sampling, the sample is chosen by selecting a random starting point and then picking every with element in succession from the sampling frame, The sampling interval is determined by dividing the population size by the sample size n and rounding to the nearest integer. For example, there are 100,000 elements in the population and a sample…

Quota Sampling

Quota sampling may be viewed as two-stage restricted judgmental sampling, The first stage consists of developing control categories, or quotas, of population elements, To develop these quotas, the researcher lists relevant control characteristics and determines the distribution of these characteristics in the target population, The relevant control characteristics, which may include sex, age, and race, are identified on the…

A Classification of Sampling Techniques

Sampling techniques may be broadly classified as non-probability and probability Non-probability sampling relies on the personal judgment of the researcher rather than chance to select sample elements, The researcher can arbitrarily or consciously decide what elements to include in the sample, Non-probability samples may yield good estimates of the population characteristics, However, they do not allow for objective evaluation of…
