  • Sampling method: Systematic
    • There is a system to selecting participants from a target population. For example, selecting every nth member of the target population. 
    • 1.   A sampling frame is produced, which is a list of people in the target population, it is often arranged in alphabetical order. 
    • 2.  Then every nth member of the target population is selected such as every 5th person on a register. 
      • Avoids researcher bias – once the system is selected, the researcher has no influence over who is chosen.
      • No guarantee that the sample will be representative
