Written for students taking research methods courses, this text provides a thorough overview of sampling principles. The author gives detailed, nontechnical descriptions and guidelines with limited presentation of formulas to help students reach basic research decisions, such as whether to choose a census or a sample, as well as how to select sample size and sample type.
Intended for students and researchers in the social and behavioral sciences, public health research, marketing research, and related areas, the text provides nonstatisticians with the concepts and techniques they need to do quality work and make good sampling choices.
Too specific for what I was looking for.
Easy to read intro to sampling issues. Not statistically based.
We have chosen to use this text because it will help provide more detailed instruction on sampling for our students. This seems to be an area where students have initial difficulty and this resource will help them as they process through the early stages of design.
