Sampling is the technique used for statistical analysis.sampling is concerned with the selection of a subset of individual from within a statistical population to estimate characteristics of whole population.each observation measures one or more properties such as weight,location,color.
stratified sampling is used to increase the randomness of the sample.it is to ensure that any differences diminished by the sampling procedure. For example: The study of a particular class of students can be considered as stratified sampling, because all the students are studying same subjects.
The Convenience sampling technique is used when it is easy to draw the sample. In the convenience sampling, sample is selected because of convenient accessibility. For example: if you want to study the effects of drugs on college going students, you can select few students from any colleges of particular area.
