I. We are conducting a survey to determine if Georgia State University students feel safe on campus. We decide that we would like our sample to reflect the demographic characteristics of Georgia State University students. Specifically, we want to make sure that our sample accurately reflects the gender and race composition of the university. We would also like to make sure that we proportionately represent international students attending Georgia State. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to conduct a random, probability sample. We decide a non-random, non-probability quota sample would be the next best way to sample our population.
Use the GSU Fall 2014 Summary and Enrollment by Race statements on the following two pages (below) to create a quota sample of 100 students from a research methods class at Georgia State University which has 1,000 students:
Based on the information you found in the link, please address the following questions.
1. How many male students should be included in our sample?
2. How many African American students should be included in our sample?
3. How many nonresident alien students should be included in our sample?
II. True or False (Circle One)
1. Random/probability samples are most often used for small, qualitative studies. T or F
2. Stratified samples are the “Gold Standard.” T or F
3. Cluster sampling is a non-random/non-probability sampling method. T or F
4. Snowball sampling is a non-random/non-probability sampling method. T or F
5. In random/probability samples, each sampling element has a known chance of being selected for participation. T or F
6. Snowball sampling is a good technique for sampling hidden or deviant/criminal populations. T or F
