Slide 22 Other Sampling Methods Covered Covered Simple Random Sampling Other Other Types • Stratified Random Sampling • Cluster Sampling • Systematic Sampling • Convenience Sampling • Judgment Sampling Slide 23 Stratified Random Sampling The The population is first divided into groups of elements called strata (subsets of population). (subsets • Best results are obtained when the elements within each stratum are as much alike as possible (i.e. are homogeneous groups). A simple random sample is taken from each stratum. sim Formulas Formulas are available for combining the stratum sample results into one population parameter estimate.

Example Example: The basis for forming the strata might be department, location, age, industry type, etc. Slide 25 Cluster Sampling The The population is first divided int...
