  7. 7. About this presentation<br />Sampling<br />How to target your respondents<br />Survey methods<br />
  8. 8. Sample<br />A subset of individuals within a population of interest<br />Sampling is the act, process, or technique of selecting a suitable sample, or a representative part of a population for the purpose of determining parameters or characteristics of the whole population<br />Goal of sampling: to be able to make inferences to the population in question<br />
  9. 9. Why sample?<br />Lower cost<br />Faster data collection<br />
  10. 10. Sampling process<br />Defining the population of concern<br />Specifying a sampling frame, a set of items or events possible to measure<br />Specifying a sampling method for selecting items or events from the frame<br />Determining the sample size<br />Implementing the sampling plan<br />Sampling and data collecting<br />Reviewing the sampling process<br />
  11. 11. Define the population<br />Definition: Entire universe of individuals who have characteristic of interest <br />Examples: Residents of city, residents of county, library card holders, users, nonusers, visitors to library, computer lab users, program attendees<br />
  12. 12. Sampling frame<br />Definition: has a property that we can identify and can include in our sample<br />Examples: telephone directory, city directory, patron database, attendance sheets, voter registration list, utility bill recipients, newspaper readers, random digit dialing (RDD)<br />
  13. 13. Sampling methods<br />Probability sampling: every individual has an equal chance of being selected<br />Nonprobability sampling: some units in the population have no chance of selection or the probability of selection can’t be accurately determined<br />
  14. 14. Sampling methods examples<br />Probability<br />Simple random<br />Systematic<br />Stratified<br />Nonprobability<br />Convenience<br />Judgment<br />Quota<br />Snowball<br />
  15. 15. Sampling example #1<br />Simple random<br />Population: Patrons<br />Frame: Patron database<br />Method: Random number generator—in Excel: =RANDBETWEEN(num1,num2) <br />
  16. 16. Sampling example #2<br />Systematic<br />Population: City residents that have a listed land-line telephone<br />Frame: Telephone directory<br />Method: Randomly select a number n (ex., 20) or smaller, start there on the first page of the directory and select every nth (ex., 20th) entry<br />
  17. 17. Sampling example #3<br />Convenience<br />Population: Library visitors<br />Frame: Anyone who approaches or passes by the reference desk<br />Method: Stop as many people as possible<br />
  18. 18. Population example<br />Entire universe<br />Population: Event attendees<br />Distribute questionnaire to everyone in attendance<br />
  19. 19. Sample size criteria<br />Level of precision/sampling error (e.g., ±5 percent): range in which the true value of the population is estimated to be<br />Confidence level: repeat sample values are normally distributed about the true value<br />Degree of variability: heterogeneous populations require a larger sample size<br />
  20. 20. Determine sample size<br />(Obtained responses)<br />
  21. 21. Implement the sampling plan<br />
  22. 22. Evaluate the sample<br />Response rate<br />Number completed<br />Total number in sample<br />
