participants from a specific population. Researchers use
probability sampling based on underlying theoretical
distributions of observations, or sampling distributions, the best
known of which is the normal curve. (Teddlie, C., & Yu, F.
(2007). This gives every individual in that population the same
chance of being selected, and the results will be a real

sampling methods are more representatives of the target
population. The different types of probability sampling (Random
sampling, Stratified sampling, Cluster sampling, and Sampling

(2007). These types of probability sampling vary in the selection
and categorization of the sample size, selection methods, and
sometimes combining sampling methods.
Select a data collection method (e.g., surveys, interviews, observations)
and briefly explain at least one strength and at least one limitation.
Then, identify a potential ethical issue with this method and describe a
