What's the difference between a Random Sample and a SRS?

Planning and Conducting Surveys

  • Well designed and conducted surveys use chance, random samples, and have no sources of bias.

  • Population: Entire group of individuals about which we want info.

  • Sample: Part of the population from which we collect information.

  • Bias: Factor which can favor certain outcomes.

  • Sampling Methods include Simple Random Sampling (SRS), Stratified Random Sampling, and Cluster Sampling.
