## What is stratified random sampling with example?

Stratified random sampling is a method of sampling that involves the division of a population into smaller sub-groups known as strata. In stratified random sampling, or stratification, the strata are formed based on members’ shared attributes or characteristics such as income or educational attainment.

## What are some examples of stratified sampling?

A stratified sample is one that ensures that subgroups (strata) of a given population are each adequately represented within the whole sample population of a research study. For example, one might divide a sample of adults into subgroups by age, like 18–29, 30–39, 40–49, 50–59, and 60 and above.

**What is simple random sampling with example?**

An example of a simple random sample would be the names of 25 employees being chosen out of a hat from a company of 250 employees. In this case, the population is all 250 employees, and the sample is random because each employee has an equal chance of being chosen.

### Where is stratified random sampling used?

When to use Stratified Random Sampling? Stratified random sampling is an extremely productive method of sampling in situations where the researcher intends to focus only on specific strata from the available population data. This way, the desired characteristics of the strata can be found in the survey sample.

### What is an example of a cluster sample?

An example of single-stage cluster sampling – An NGO wants to create a sample of girls across five neighboring towns to provide education. Using single-stage sampling, the NGO randomly selects towns (clusters) to form a sample and extend help to the girls deprived of education in those towns.

**Why we use stratified random sampling?**

- Step 1: Define the population. Start by deciding on the population that you want to study.
- Step 2: Decide on the sample size. Next, you need to decide how large your sample size will be.
- Step 3: Randomly select your sample.
- Step 4: Collect data from your sample.
