Developing the survey process we used sampling strategy which can be better described as: stratified, convenience, snowball sampling


A stratified sampling involves dividing the population into homogenous groups, each group containing subjects with similar characteristics. For example group A might contain B females. In order to obtain a sample representative of the whole population in terms of sex a random selection of subjects from group A and B must be taken.... Exactly what we are trying to do with sex and age-groups.

However our sampling strategy I feel has two strong dimensions: convenience and snowball.

Convenience sampling involves choosing the nearest individuals to serve as responders and continue up until a certain sample size has been obtained. Given the fact that our sample does not require special characteristics (i.e we are not looking for people from special backgrounds, or immigrants or people that has a certain level of education, or only single mothers, people with special needs...nor exclude this population...) this does not affect the validity of the survey.

Also a common practice was to say to people that we already know (to our convenience sample)...'please let other people know about our questionnaire'...this broads our field and leads us to a snowball sampling strategy.

In snowball sampling the researchers identify a small number of sample in which they are interested.These people are then used as informants to identify or to bring researchers closer to other people that qualify for inclusion and these identify others.....etc...
