Sampling Strategy and Sample Size for a Quantitative Research Plan

Now that you have considered the impact that sampling strategy and size can have on the quality and reliability of a research study, you must now turn your attention to your own quantitative research plan. You have built your research plan over the past 5 weeks to include proper research design and measurement methods. This week, you add to this plan by deciding what sampling strategy best fits your research.

To prepare for this Application:

Review Chapter 8, "Sampling and Sample Designs" and Appendix D, "Random Digits" in the course text Research Methods in the Social Sciences.

Review the handout "Sample Size Analysis for Quantitative Studies" located in the Learning Resources.

Consider what would be the best sampling strategy for your quantitative research plan. Why have you chosen that strategy?

What considerations should you be thinking about for your sample size?

What are the strengths and weaknesses of the sampling strategy for your research plans?

The assignment:

Craft a 3-to 5-page paper in which you recommend the sampling strategy and sample size for your quantitative research plan (Microfinance). Include a rationale for why that is the best strategy and size for your plan. Refer to the literature as needed. Use the following as a framework for your paper: APA form and pages if book used.
