    Question Research Sampling Techniques - Question : Need some guidance

    A researcher discovers that in a particular city 10% of the households are headed by a single person and that 90% of the families are husband-wife families. The researcher tells interviewers to conduct 80 interviews. Ten percent of these interviews should be with families that are headed by a single person, and 90% should be with husband-wife families. This research uses
    a.
    simple random sampling
    b.
    quota sampling
    c.
    cluster sampling
    d.
    stratified sampling
    e.
    accidental sampling

    I feel like it could be b but I am unsure. Anyone?

    Google will answer this for you. The key point here is that random sampling is not specifies within the categories (which makes it quota rather than stratified sampling)
