What is Sampling in Research? - Definition, Methods & Importance

1. What is Sampling in Research? - Definition, Methods & Importance

The sample of a study can have a profound impact on the outcome of a study. In this lesson, we'll look at the procedure for drawing a sample and why it is so important to draw a sample that represents the population.

The Relationship Between Population, Sample & Generalizability

2. The Relationship Between Population, Sample & Generalizability

Researchers try their best to gather a sample that represents their population. But why is this important? In this lesson, we'll look at the relationship between population, sample, and generalizability in research.

Probability Sampling Methods: Definition & Types

3. Probability Sampling Methods: Definition & Types

Choosing a sample is one of the most important steps in research. But how should you choose? In this lesson, we'll look at three types of probability sampling: simple random, systematic, and stratified sampling.

Probability Sampling Methods: Multistage, Multiphase, and Cluster Samples

4. Probability Sampling Methods: Multistage, Multiphase, and Cluster Samples

How do researchers choose the subjects for their experiments? In this lesson, we'll look at what probability sampling is and three different probability sampling methods: cluster, multistage, and multiphase sampling.

Non-Probability Sampling Methods: Definition & Types

5. Non-Probability Sampling Methods: Definition & Types

There are many different ways to choose a sample for a research study. In this lesson, we'll look at three types of non-probability sampling: convenience, quota, and judgmental (or purposive sampling) and when to use each type.

Issues in Probability & Non-Probability Sampling

6. Issues in Probability & Non-Probability Sampling

Choosing a sample is an important part of research. The two methods of sampling both come with their own set of issues. In this lesson, we'll look at the issues with probability and non-probability sampling.

How to Determine Sample Size

7. How to Determine Sample Size

How many subjects should a researcher use in his or her experiment? In this lesson, we'll examine the elements that go into sample size, including how to figure out how big a sample should be and what real-world issues influence sample size.
