Social research and statistics sampling

  1. Complete Exercise 5.1 in An Invitation to Social Research: How It’s Done. Notice that you are asked to draw three different types of samples.
  2. Submit the assignment as a Word document.
  3. APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected. 

For Exercise 5.1 make sure to complete all steps 1 -6 (a) & (b) and show your work. The Exercise asks you to Number the states from 01 to 50 with the abbreviated name on the list (I want to see the list), then 2. Use the Appendix to provide a sample of 12 states, write the numbers from the appendix (yes I want to see this too), and etc… This may appear time consuming, but you are showing your work and it shows me that you are understanding of the variety of sampling techniques and not just putting states down. The reminder of the 3-6 (a)(b) list the states and in sentence/paragraph answer the questions using the text to support your answer. Be this detailed in all of the exercises. It will eliminate point deductions. Further, make sure to use spell/grammar check in all assignments.
