What is census data
Data collected from the entire population
1 of 32
Whats the advantages of census data
completely accurate data
2 of 32
Whats the disadvantages of census data
Time consuming. There's a larger volume of data that needs to be processed. The data collection can't be destroyed
3 of 32
What is sampling data
Observation taken from the subset of a population
4 of 32
Whats the advantages of sampling data
Cheaper. Quicker. Less data to be processed
5 of 32
Whats the disadvantages of sampling data
May not be accurate. Data may not be large enough to represent group
6 of 32
What is random simple sampling data
Sample has an equal chance of being selected
7 of 32
Whats the advantages of random simple sampling data
Bias free. Easy and cheap to do. Sample has an equal chance of being selected
8 of 32
Whats the disadvantages of random simple sampling data
Not suitable for large population. Needs a sample frame
9 of 32
What is a sample frame
List of all the items in your population
10 of 32
Whats the procedure for simple random sampling
Identify the sample frame using numbers for each item. Use a random number generator
11 of 32
What is systematic sampling
They are chosen in random intervals in an ordered list
12 of 32
Procedure to systematic sampling
Take every k value : pop size/ sample size (Must be random)
13 of 32
Whats the advantage of systematic sampling
Simple. Quick. Can use large sample/population
14 of 32
Whats the disadvantage of systematic sampling
Sample frame needed. Can be bias if not random
15 of 32
What is stratified sampling
Population in strata, Do random sampling
16 of 32
How to work out stratified sampling
proportions = sample size/ pop size
17 of 32
What are the advantages of stratified sampling
Reflects the population structure. There's proportional representation with groups
18 of 32
What are the disadvantages of stratified sampling
Population must be classified into strata. Population size cannot be large . Sample fame needed
19 of 32
What is a strata
Population divided into groups
20 of 32
What is a quota sampling
Selects the sample which reflects the characteristic of the whole population
21 of 32
Whats the procedure of quota sampling
Population divided into groups according to characteristic. Interviewer selects the units
22 of 32
Whats the advantages of quota sampling
Small sample to represent the population. No sample frame needed. Quick. Easy comparison between groups
23 of 32
Whats the disadvantages of quota sampling
It can introduce bias. Population divided into groups. Inaccurate. No responses isn't recorded
24 of 32
Whats the disadvantages of NON- RANDOM SAMPLING
It can introduce bias
25 of 32
What are the random sampling
Simple random, systematic, stratified
26 of 32
What are the non random sampling
quota, (opportunity/ convenience )
27 of 32
What is opportunity/ convenience sampling
Sample from people available at the time. study is carried out. Must fit the criteria
28 of 32
Whats the advantage opportunity/ convenience sampling
easy to carry out. Inexpensive
29 of 32
Whats the disadvantage opportunity/ convenience sampling
Unlikely to provide representative samples. Highly dependent on individual research
30 of 32
What would be the sample frame for the 20 computer circuit board having its own serial number
The circuit board having its own serial number
31 of 32
What would be the sampling units for the 20 computer circuit board having its own serial number
A circuit board
