"All the names of a class were written on separate tickets. Ten tickets were selected after the names were jumbled inside a can...."
This is an example of simple random sampling right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well...i know it's random....i just don't know the specific type of random sampling

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Isnt there only one type? :O do u have choices lol? :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it could be clustered random sampling....since they were grouped first... or maybe stratified random sampling since i don't know what it means....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no there isn't one type and no choices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would probably argue that they're looking for clustered random sampling. They first divided some population up into "classes" and from this particular class, they made a simple random sampling. I see how this is confusing though. Since a clustered random sampling by definition has a simple random sampling in it...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Taking AP Stats, eh @Igbasallote? It's SRS.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0clustered random sampling has something to do with grouping right @KingGeorge ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0clustered random sampling is when you split the population into multiple groups/clusters, and then take a simple random sample. By saying this was from a "class" it implied to me that they had divided the overall population into multiple "classes"/groups.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's that fact that confuses the question a little for me. Since any example of clustered random sampling is an example of simple random sampling as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Def 1. SRS is a sample selected from a population that ensures that EVERY possible sample of desired size has the same chance of being selected (i.e., random number generator  but, the College Board counts the shuffled names on tickets as random) Def 2. A population can be divided into nonoverlapping subgroups called clusters which are internally heterogenous. Random selection of several clusters and then assessment of all internal individuals is cluster sampling.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...so how is it not cluster nor random?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are taking ONE sample from your ticket pool, and each ticket has an equal chance of being drawn, assuming you take them at the same time, and do so randomly. You are NOT dividing the class into, say, desk groups and randomly choosing entire desk groups for your sample. QED, SRS.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah. It makes more sense now. In a cluster sampling, you also have to take a sample of each cluster. Hence, this can't be CRS, so it must be SRS.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^^I think that's the right idea. Feel free to shoot me down if it's wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by SRS we're talking about simple? or stratified?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simple of course. Stratified sampling can be thought of as homogenous clustering.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh..i thought SRS meant stratified

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And stratification would result in an internal SRS for each strata.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is stratified random sampling then?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I told you, didn't I? "Stratified sampling can be thought of as homogenous clustering," but where each such homogenous cluster has an "internal SRS for each strata." I.e., you don't use the entire strata as your sample.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you choose part of the cluster?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or you divide a population into different clusters and then you select one cluster?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Stratified sampling: I want to observe high school student's attitude towards school assemblies. I know that there may be varying attitudes over grade level. Strata: Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors. Take a SRS (simple RS) of each strata (make sure size of SRS is proportional to grade population): 30 rand selected fresh, 20 r.s. soph., 25 r.s. juniors, 20 r.s. seniors. Sample = 30 + 20 + 25+ 20

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is done so that I have a sample that represents my population well. A whole SRS of the entire high school of size 95 can end up with, say, 50 sophomores, which may skew the results.
