Sampling Difference Confusion
Hi there, I'm confused with stratified sampling and cluster sampling. I looked at my textbook and did some research, and I still can't understand the difference.
Would someone care to explain? Thanks.
Edit: Also, if anyone is willing to explain to me sampling and response bias, that would be greatly appreciated :).
Re: Sampling Difference Confusion
Stratified sampling is sampling that is broken into "strata" or disjoint regions of a particular sampling space and samples are drawn from each strata where-as cluster sampling treats every cluster as an individual sampling unit.
Wiki does a nice job of explaining:
