- Selection of elements is left primarily to the interviewer.
- Easy, inexpensive, or convenient to the sample

- limitations- not representative of the population.
- Recommended for pre testing Q, generating ideas, insight @ hypotheses.
- Eg: a survey was conducted by one local TV stations involving a small number of housewives, white collar workers & blue collar workers. The survey attempts to elicit the respondents response towards a particular drama series aired over the channel.

- The population elements are selected based on the judgment of the researcher.
- From the judgment, the elements are representative of the population of interest.
- Eg: testing the consumers’ response towards a brand of instant coffee, Indocafe at a wholesale market.

- Definition:
- If a sample of n is drawn from a population of N in such a way that every possible sample of size n has the same chance of being selected, the sample obtained is called a simple random sampling.

- N – number of units in the population
- n – number of units in sample

Institut Matematik Kejuruteraan, UniMAP

- Do not have any bias element (every element treated equally).
- Target population is homogenous in nature (the units have similar characteristics)
- Eg: canteen operators in primary school, operators in cyber cafes, etc..
- Disadvantages:
- Sampling frame are not updated. Sampling frame are costly to produce.
- Impractical for large study area.

Systematic Sampling

- Definition:
a sample obtained by randomly selecting one element from the 1stk elements in the frame & every kth element there is called a 1-in-k systematic sample, with a random start.

- k – interval size

Institut Matematik Kejuruteraan, UniMAP

- eg:
Let say, there are a total of N=500 primary school canteen operators in the Klang Valley in 1997 who are registered with the Ministry of Education. We required a sample of n=25 operators for a particular study.

Step 1: make sure that the list is random(the name sorted

alphabetically).

Step 2: divide the operators into interval contain k operators.

k = population size = 500/25 = 20 for every 20 operators

sample size selected only one to represent that interval

Step 3: 1st interval only, select r at random. Let say 7. operators with id

no.7 will be 1st sample. The rest of the operators selected in

remaining intervals will depend on this number.

Step 4: after 7 has been selected, the remaining selection will be

operators with the following id no.

- Definition:
obtained by separating the population elements into non overlapping groups, called strata, & then selecting a random sample from each stratum.

- Large variation within the population.
- Eg: lecturers that can be categorized as lecturers, senior lecturers, associate prof & prof.

Institut Matematik Kejuruteraan, UniMAP

Step 1: segregate population units into individual characteristics.

Each unit appears in into1 group/stratum. This what meant

by ‘non overlapping’. Denote the units as Nh (population

stratum size).

Step 2: obtain random sampling frames which are current for each

stratum.

Step 3: each frame select a random sample using one of method

that has been discussed. Select the unit proportionately,

i.e large stratum size should be represented with more

units compared to small stratum size. Denote the

represent unit of a particular stratum as nh (sample

stratum size).

- Definition:
probability sample in which each sampling unit is a collection, @ cluster of elements.

- Advantages- can be applied to a large study areas
- practical & economical.

- cost can be reduced-interviewer only need

to stay within the specific area instead

travelling across of the study area.

- Disadvantages – higher sampling error.

7.0 Sampling and Sampling Distribution

Mean of sample mean ,

Mean of sampling distribution = mean of population

Variance of sampling distribution

Standard deviation of sampling distribution

Institut Matematik Kejuruteraan, UniMAP

- If we are sampling from a population that has an unknown probability distribution, the sampling distribution of the sample mean will still be approximately normal with mean and standard deviation , if the sample size n is large.

Institut Matematik Kejuruteraan, UniMAP

- n ≥ 30 , the sampling distribution of the sample mean is normally distributed
- n < 30,the sampling distribution of the sample mean is normallydistributedif the sample is from the normal population and variance is known

The amount of time required to change the oil and filter of any vehicles is normally distributed with a mean of 45 minutes and a standard deviation of 10 minutes. A random sample of 16 cars is selected.

- What is the standard error of the sample mean to be?
- What is the probability of the sample mean between 45 and 52 minutes?
- What is the probability of the sample mean between 39 and 48 minutes?
- Find the two values between the middle 95% of all sample means.

where

- N = total number of elements in the population;
- X = number of elements in the population that possess a specific characteristic;
- n = total number of elements in the sample; and
- x = number of elements in the sample that possess a specific characteristic

and

- The probability distribution of the sample proportion , is called its sampling distribution. It gives various values that can assume and their probabilities.
- For the large values of n (n ≥30), the sampling distribution is very closely normally distributed.

Mean of the Sample Proportion

- The mean of the sample proportion, is denoted by and is equal to the population proportion, p.

- where p is the population proportion, and n is the sample size.

For a small values of n:

- the population is binomial distributed,

The value of Z :

- The National Survey of Engagement shows about 87% of freshmen and seniors rate their college experience as “good” or “excellent”. Assume this result is true for the current population of freshmen and seniors. Let be the proportion of freshmen and seniors in a random sample of 900 who hold this view. Find the mean and standard deviation of .

- Let p the proportion of all freshmen and seniors who rate their college experience as “good” or “excellent”. Then,
p = 0.87 and q = 1 – p = 1 – 0.87 = 0.13

- The mean of the sample distribution of is:

- A certain change in a process for manufacture of component parts was considered. It was found that 75 out of 1500 items from the existing procedure were found to be defective and 80 of 2000 items from the new procedure were found to be defective. If one random sample of size 49 items were taken from the existing procedure and a random sample of 64 items were taken from the new procedure, what is the probability that
- the proportion of the defective items from the new procedure exceeds the proportion of the defective items from the existing procedure?
- proportions differ by at most 0.015?
- the proportion of the defective items from the new procedure exceeds proportion of the defective items from the existing procedure by at least 0.02?
