Sampling A sample is a small proportion of the population that is selected for observation and analysis. By observing the characteristics of the sample, one can make certain inferences about the characteristics of the population from which it was drawn. One can also infer changes observed in the sample to changes that would likely have occurred in the population (using inferential statistics described in Chapter 11). Contrary to popular opinion, samples are not selected haphazardly. Rather they are chosen in a systematically random way so that chance or the operation of probability is utilized.

It may involve recommendations for action. It is not concerned with generalizations that may be extended to other settings.

From the 80 counties all the school districts could be listed and a random sample of 30 school districts selected. It would not be difficult to compile a list of all elementary teachers from the 30 school districts and to select a random sample of 500 teachers. This successive random sampling of states, counties, school districts, and, finally, of individuals would involve a relatively efficient and inexpensive method of selecting a sample of individuals.
