22.Suppose you want to conduct a survey of the attitude of psychology graduate students studying clinical psychology toward psychoanalytic methods of psychotherapy. One approach would be to contact every psychology graduate student you know and ask them to fill out a questionnaire about it.
(a) What kind of sampling method is this? (b) What is a major limitation of this kind of approach?
25.You are conducting a survey at a college with 800 students, 50 faculty members, and 150 administrators. Each of these 1,000 individuals has a single listing in the campus phone directory. Suppose you were to cut up the directory and pull out one listing at random to contact. What is the probability it would be?
(f) Explain your answers to someone who has never had a course in statistics
d) P (a faculty member or administrator) = 0.05+0.15 = 0.2
f) Probability = Number of successes/Number of all possible outcomes. Use this formula to find probability of each case. For each case count the number of the particular successful output and divide the result by the total number of possible outcomes.
