Psy Notes 6 Monday, February 29, 2016 11:22 AM Two types of samples • Probability ○ Can quantify the likelihood of being selected • Non-probability ○ Can't quantify the likelihood of being selected Probability Sampling • Accurately describes a population • Must be a representative sample • Sampling error ○ Rarely mirrors population Simple random sampling • Known population • Random selection • Equal selection probability • Requires a sampling frame ○ Ex. The candy bag Systematic sampling • Not concerned with population size • Every nth person • Not random Stratified random sampling • Divide population into groups "strata" • Randomly sample from each strata • Ensures adequate number from each group Cluster sampling • Clusters occur naturally • Sampling clusters, and then sample participants • More efficient than stratified random, because only clusters are sample • Clusters are essentially the same as one another, Strata are fundamentally different ○ Multi step process Probability sampling issues • Nonresponse ○ Some participants don't respond, are they different form those who did respond? • Misgeneralization wrong ○ Generalizing to wrong population Nonprobability • Selection probability is unknown • Not truly random • Used to study relationships among variables • Most behavioral research Convenience sampling • Uses easy- to- reach participants • Most typical type of nonprobability • Replication shows generalizability ○ Just taking what is there. No specific Quota sampling • Specific proportions of people with selected characteristics • Specific proportions of people with selected characteristics • Often used for market research ○ Focus Group Snowball sampling • Used for hard to reach groups • Can use incentives to (cautiously) increase response ○ Word of mouth ○ Ex. My cousin sally heard from her friend Janet who heard from… How many participants? • Want enough participants to detect an effect power Power • Ability to find true effect • Helps estimate required sample size • Larger sample = greater power ○ More variability ○ Some error
