This one day course is designed to give participants a practical understanding of the principles of sampling. Participants will learn about the key features of random probability sampling, and the factors that need to be considered to obtain efficient, unbiased samples. The course contents includes: an introduction to the different sampling approaches with particular reference to random probability options; over-sampling different sub-groups; selecting multi-phase clustered samples and stratified samples and the impact of variable sampling fractions, clustering and stratification on sample efficiency.
