Sample Design


Finding the Right People

We design sampling strategies to best represent the population of interest to your study. We use Power Analysis to determine sample size needs, based on the researcher’s desired effect size. Once a sampling design is created, SESRC can select samples from target populations, or obtain samples from professional sampling firms.

Whether your project requires studying an entire population or just a subset, the SESRC can help you determine the best approach.

Let our team guide you through the process of finding which sampling method fits best with your project scope and budget. Our team can work with a list you provide or we can collaborate with our professional partners to draw a random sample, from simple to complex designs.

Our sampling experts can advise you on the limitation of non-probability samples and how to avoid the many pitfalls that often lead to higher rates of sampling and coverage error.
